I Received An RSVP From The President (He isn't coming, but check out what he sent)

If you remember my post from the other day, RSVP cards have been a headache. It turned into a bit of hunting people down ... and we are actually still waiting for a few RSVP's.

You know who isn't outstanding? President Barack Obama. I was actually really shocked when I went to get the mail yesterday and there was an envelope with The White House as the return address. I mean, I did invite the President to our wedding (you can find out how to do that here), but part of me didn't expect a reply.


The Commander-in-Chief will not be at our ceremony, however, we received a really nice note back. It was just under five weeks since we sent it that we received a reply.


You can't see it in the photo, but there is an official seal embossed above the text. The card is signed by Barack and Michelle Obama. Well, maybe not. I was looking online and found other people who received an RSVP from the president ... and the dot over the "i" in Michelle is running rogue on all of them. So maybe it's a stamp, but that's okay with me. It's still a very, very cool keepsake. And since it arrived before our wedding, I might get a chance to frame it and display it at our reception.

If you want to send an invitation to The White House to see if you'll get an RSVP from The President and First Lady, you can address is to:

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

    1. It was really cool to see it in the mailbox, Aria.

  2. That's exciting! Just for kicks we sent invitations to Jennifer Lawrence, Bill Murray, Eli Manning, and Mariano Rivera. No responses yet. But it's fun to think about!
