    No

    Didn't even think of sending an invitation to the President

    I read that it should be sent after the event but it doesn’t seem to be a big deal otherwise since other bees have received a reply when the invitation was sent before the event.

    We sent ours in April and got our response about 3 weeks ago.

    I sent mine out before the Obamas were in office…so my letter from the White House is signed by the Bush’s.

    That’s an interesting idea sending it to the big cheese – but why? Not being snarky, just curious! And I hate to be a pessimist, but do you guys really think that they have the time to look at your invites and personally sign the paper you get back? That stuff is probably forwarded to a white house worker miles away from the Obamas in a small dark office somewhere!

    It’s responded to by the office of protocol and the congrats is signed in real ink by an auto-pen.   For us, politics was an important part of the year we were engaged and we will frame it along with our Obama posters and other memorobilia.

    I also imagine that when I’m talking to our theoretical future grandkids, that I’d love to pull that out and show it to them as evidence of the historical era that we were a part of!

    I’m stoked to add it to all of my wedding memorabilia!  To me it’s another way of celebrating when you chose to get married!

    @ProudPeacockBride, I definitely don’t have any illusions about the pres reviewing my invitation. Smile

    It’s just a fun memento for our scrapbook.

    @Mrs DG – we are date twins πŸ™‚

    We sent ours to the White House the first week of May and also received our response a couple of weeks ago. My dad saw it in the mail and thought that somehow the White House “just knew” that we were married – I had to explain that we sent an invitation Smile

    Is Canada British enough for the Queen to reply??? If not, I’m also Chinese, born in Hong Kong under British rule… I might even qualify for a British Overseas passport… Am I British enough?

     

    Tongue out Probably not. Oh well. I hope Micky Mouse replies πŸ˜€

    we just got our note from the white house today! how exciting, it makes for a nice momento! we sent our invitation at the end of july, so just over 3 months for a response. the note was not personalized, but someone did address the envelope by hand, so that was a nice touch.

    We sent invitations back in March and just received our response card from the Obamas a couple of weeks ago.  I was really excited. πŸ™‚
