Wedding Wednesday - Inviting Mickey Mouse, President Barack Obama and Queen Elizabeth to your wedding

The invitations are calligraphed, sealed, stamped and ready to be delivered. The huge box sitting on my living room floor contains a few addressee's who will never show at the wedding. If you have extra envelopes, you can invite the President of the United States, The Queen and Mickey and Minnie Mouse are a few things you can do with extra invites. You may receive a letter in the mail congratulating big day.

The President:
The White house will send you a letter, congratulating you on your big day, signed by Barack and Michelle Obama. I have a letter signed by President Clinton when my Grandfather passed away back in the mid 90's. I don't care what your political stance is, getting a congratulatory letter signed letter from the big guy is pretty awesome.

Mickey and Minnie Mouse
There are two addresses you can send Mickey and Minnie an invite to - one in Lake Buena Vista and the other in Burbank. I sent one to each. While they used to send you a hand signed photo, rumor has it that this has switched to a post card. Either way, I will report back with what I receive.

Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Disneyland
The Walt Disney Company
500 South Buena Vista Street
Burbank, California 91521
The Queen of England
While I am not English, I still went ahead and used one of my extra invitations for the Queen. Sadly, I am not sending this one for two reasons. Majesty was spelled incorrect and the overseas shipping on irregular shaped envelopes is outrageous. I wanted to go ahead and provide the address. Sometimes the Queen will send you a letter congratulating your big day.

Cinderella and Prince Charming
America's favorite Prince and Princess will send you a signed certificate for your wedding. This would be very cool if you planned on having kids. I could only imagine how cool a little girl would think their parents were by receiving a certificate from the Prince and Princess!

I will report back with whatever I receive from the above addressed! Time to go hand stamp 95 envelopes at the post office. This is a piece of advice I received from my friend Darlynn who got married a year ago. Hand Stamping your envelopes means you personally cancel out the stamp vs. it going through a machine (potentially harming your invitations). It also helps cut down on all the ink and markings that are all over the invitation. While it may take quite sometime, I will have the peace of mind knowing that a machine will not eat my wedding invitation.
