It’s a couple of months before your wedding and you have sent out invitations to everyone on your carefully crafted guest list before getting married. That’s when you discover you still have a few of your beautiful invitation suites left....
While you should be sure to keep one as a memento of this happy time in your life and also keep another so your photographer can take a professional photo of it on the big day, there’s no harm in having fun with the extras! Recent years have seen a trend of sending celebrities and famous people invitations in hopes of receiving a fun keepsake back in the mail for your wedding scrapbook. The internet is full of couples sharing the “respectfully declined” RSVP card they have received from the likes of Peyton Manning, Jimmy Kimmel, and Zach Galifianakis. Others claim Oprah Winfrey and Ellen Degeneres will send a note too in response to a wedding invitation.
The most popular options, however, are to mail an invitation to the President of the United States – Barack Obama was especially popular during his presidency – and Mickey and Minnie Mouse! The First Family send a nice card with a stamped signature, while Disney’s top couple are known for sending a postcard and a “Just Married” pin from one of the theme parks. Cinderella and Prince Charming are also reported to send a similar keepsake. Her Majesty the Queen of the United Kingdom is another popular recipient of wedding invitations, although only British citizens will receive a response.
For your convenience, the best addresses to use when inviting some of the most popular celebrity "guests" and world leaders are below. If you want to take a chance on receiving a note from another celebrity (like Jimmy Kimmel, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, etc.), we recommend finding out what address they use for fan mail and sending off your wedding invite.
