Let’s be funny! Inviting Mickey Mouse and Barack Obama to wedding

16 May

I stumbled upon some links that say the Obamas will actually reply to you if you send them a wedding invitation. Obviously, they’ll say they won’t come, but supposedly you’ll get a congratulations letter. How nice.

We had like 10 extra wedding invites, so we thought we’d send one to Barack and Michelle Obama for fun. Don’t think they’ll be in Canada at the time, and apparently the crazy security costs for Barack Obama what led to them not being invited to the Royal Wedding, but that’s alright.

And even though I’ve whined about Disney’s princessification of weddings, it doesn’t mean that I don’t think Minnie and Mickey are adorable, so we sent them an invite too.

Apparently, they’ll send you this:

Mickey and Minnie will supposedly send us this congratulatory photo

Here are the addresses:

Mickey and Minnie Mouse
The Walt Disney Company
500 South Buena Vista Street
Burbank, California 91521

The Honorable Barack Obama and Mrs. Obama
The White House
Greetings Office Room 39
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, DC 20600

And a link to more  including the Queen and the Pope

If you live in the United Kingdom, the Queen will also supposedly reply, though not sure if she would reply to us in the Commonwealth. Canada IS a colony, I guess.

I’ve looked for William and Kate’s address to mail them a wedding invitation but can’t find it. I thought they might like to attend a small intimate wedding instead of the media circus they had lol!

Our invitation to Mickey and Minnie in California

      Yes we did! We got a lovely autographed photo of Mickey and Minnie telling us congratulations and a button with Cinderella and the Prince which says “just married!” I wore it the day after the wedding. It’s totally worth the bit of effort.

      Nothing from Obama lol

      Thanks for the message, Tyson! Looks like we mailed it in May and we got the photo back from Mickey in time for the wedding. They also sent us a badge/button to wear that had a picture of Cinderella and the Prince dressed in their wedding clothes that said “Just Married.” Fun to wear the day after the wedding. Good luck to you and congratulations!
