Whom should I invite? Celebrity suggestions, please
I got the idea of inviting famous people to our wedding, mostly to have a souvenir from their response card, from one of the invitation artists we talked with. We have to pay for 100 invites anyway and only need to send out about 75... It's only going to cost us about a dollar in postage to send them out and will make getting the RSVP's back that much more fun!
We have the Obamas on our list and Rahm Emmanuel, the new mayor of Chicago, where we live.
Does anyone have experience with doing this and know who might be most likely to respond? Any suggestions of someone fun and interesting to try?

haha that's AWESOME! I would have never thought about that in a million years. What if one of them happened to be in town and free and responded with a yes? You have to tell us who you got RSVPs from :)

This is such a fun idea! If I have extra I just might invite the Obamas as well! What about actors from your favorite tv show or movie? Or the singer of your first dance song?

Oprah was a great suggestion! Are there any actors or singers you particularly love?

That's such an awesome idea! I think I would invite Jon Bon Jovi. And if happened to RSVP yes... I think I would definately have to change my wedding song!

I think the President sends a signed card and maybe a photo if you invite him to a wedding.

Invite Prince William and Kate Middleton! Maybe they'll get confused, think they know you, and invite you to the royal wedding.

hysterical -- you truly never know what will happen. my fiance's sister is an artist based in london, and when she was expecting her first child, she wrote to several artists, musicians, political figures etc... and asked for ideas for baby names. you would be amazed at the responses she got - as well as how many of them were really thoughtful. and, that is how her first child ended up with 11 names. :O)

I am hoping to invite the Obamas, as well as possibly some of my favorite celebs, not sure which ones yet though. I have also heard you can get really cool responses. ;)

If you send an invite to the Obamas, the White House sends some sort of congratulatory card/certificate.

I have heard Oprah sometimes sends gifts- and since she's local to Chicago- go for it.

You never know what Ellen will do- so invite her for sure.

The following people are also from Chicago, even if they don't live there now:
Billy Corgan
Stephen Colbert
Walt Disney
Kathy Griffin
Tina Fey
Micheal Jordan
