Keepsake Idea: Invite President-Elect Barack Obama to Your Wedding

Barackobama If you got engaged during this historic election year and you’re planning to marry after January 20, 2009 (Inauguration Day) did you know you can formally invite our new president to your wedding? If you send an invite to the White House you’ll get a personal response signed by the president and first lady. For all your political power couples out there, this is a cheap and easy keepsake idea that’s sure to make your wedding album or planning scrapbook pop.

Mail your invitation to the Obamas here:

The Honorable Barack Obama and Mrs. Obama
The White House
Greetings Office Room 39
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, DC 20500

Prefer to fax it over? Use: 202-395-1232

BTW: Allow at last 6 weeks for your response to arrive and be sure to include both your new and old mailing address.

My daughter mailed her invitation the first of August and received a reply this week (November 10). It is a very nice keepsake. It is from our President and First Lady after all. I did not vote for President Obama but he is our President. My daughter also sent an invitation to the Pope and to the Queen of England--We are Baptist and American. The reply from the President of the United States will be the most cherished.

Wow, lame. Have you losers got nothing better to do than waste taxpayers' money for a keepsake (because someone has to open your letters, read them, and print and mail back replies)? American brides are so narcissistic.

I'm faxing mine tomorrow and will probably mail one later. I figure if I get it by my wedding great, if not, at least I'll get a keepsake from them eventually. It's a historic year to be married in, so why not!

I sent our invitation to our wedding which is in 3 weeks and have not received anything as of yet. I am keeping my hopes up but I with the way the world is functioning at the present time I totally understand it may take awhile.

I called the white house switch board this morning. I was told that this department has not been formed, YET. Then she told me to fax it, maybe I will get a response when someone has been assigned to this department. So, I faxed and will hope for the best. This would have been cool.

First and foremost, I praise God for giving us you, as our 44th president of The United States of America! President-Elect and First Lady, I would like to invite your family to my daughter's wedding on August 15th 2009. My daughter will be 34 years of age and this is her first marriage and with your blessing and God's loving covenant and guidance, this will be her only marriage. We would be honored to have you, your wife and beautiful daughters to be apart of this joyful reunion of Sharlene and Antoine. Thank you and wish you all the peace and happiness this world has to offer.

good afternoon ms renee

first of all i feel very sorry for you and the way that u feel especially being a native american. the land that we now call american land was stolen from your ancestors. explain to me how u can so easily forget that. and second of all u should learn to spell and proof read your message before sending it for others to read, also and most importantly u should know the facts about who or what u r speaking on. president elect obama has brought hope to this country. and it is obvious from the election that this is something that the people of the united states need at this point in time. we have given the republicans (bush) a chance to run this country and unfortunately that have successfully run it into the ground. so y not give obama a chance he has given this country something that it has missed in the previous election HOPE for everyone not just blks. and stop using your religion to speak such ingnorant things that dont even make sense. i pray for pres. obama i pray that he allows God to lead his every decision and i pray the God protects him from ingnorant people such as yourself. Again like one of the previous writers indicated u can easily move to another country alone by yourself. and this is my opinion and feelings as a blk woman. on a lighter note i will be marrying the man of my dreams in aug of 2010 and would love to invite the president and his wife knowing that the wouldn't possibly be able to make it but just to have their respond for a memorable keepsake would make our day even better. America stay prayful for yourself and our President Obama

Isn't this website supposed to be about weddings? So, they post how to invite the president-elect and his wife to your wedding. Well, before January 20th 2009, you can always invite President Bush and Mrs. Bush if you prefer. I think that it's neat to be able to invite the President, and get a response for my scrapbook, no matter who he/she is!

Wow, i can't beleive how people can be of God and speak of evil, God equal love, love thee neighbor. Cain is in the bible under John chapter Two, spoke of Cain being nothing but evil. Obama is change, hope and peace on earth. If you notice McCain in Red and Obama in blue meaning peace and heavenly. Blue is calm red is hot and can consider to be evil devil in red... Just like they hated Jesus when he was of good, they cast stone and hung him. Jesus died for you sins.

Renee let me educate you on something:

2. Barack Obama's dad is from Kenya. A completely different COUNTRY from Nigeria. Yes the are in the continent of Africa but that does not mean the culture, people, nor language is the same. Thats like saying Italy and France is the same just because its in the same CONTINENT! lol! You need to get your geography straight!!!

3. Reading your blog made me feel uneasy and I came to the conclusion that you are definately the DEVIL if you are spreading all that hate to another human being.
