You’ve got to admit, regardless of one’s political affiliation, a congratulatory note from the President of the United States and First Lady would make a memorable addition to your wedding scrapbook, right? And, you don’t have to “crash” a White House party to get it!
Imagine how exciting it would be, as a Bride & Groom, to receive congratulatory greetings for your wedding from White House.
Well, you can and it’s FREE as long as the recipients are American citizens and you follow two very simple steps.
First, wedding greetings may only be requested “after” the wedding has taken place.
Second, a Presidential greeting request must include the following information:
Name of the Bride & Groom
Address of the Bride & Groom
Date (month, day, year) of the wedding
The name, e-mail address and daytime phone number of the individual requesting the greeting.
And, although not mandated as a requirement, sending a copy of the wedding invitation might be a nice gesture. It would also add legitimacy to the request.
Now that you’ve got all of the information put together, you can submit it in one of 2 ways:
Mail: The White House
Attn: Greetings Office
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, D.C. 20502-0039
As you can probably guess, the White House gets a hundreds of requests for wedding congratulatory greetings. So, allow several months for it to reach the recipient.
