I don't know if anybody is interested but if you send an invitation to the President of the United States the White House will usually send a signed plack. My sister did it for her wedding, I thought it was cute. Here's the info if you'd like to have it.

The Honorable Barack Obama and Mrs. Obama

The White House

Greetings Office Rm. 39

1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Washington, DC 20500

no. 2 by Fax

Wedding invitations to the President can also be faxed to: (202) 395-1232

Invitation Tip:

The White House greetings office handles as many wedding invitation requests as they can. Send your wedding invitation at least six weeks in advance. Be sure to include your old and new mailing address in case the RSVP comes later.

    I didn't get a signed plaque - I got a nice card with well wishes, but it was stamped with his signature.

    Super nice stationary, though!

    Stephen King, Sara Bareilles, Kevin Smith, Joss Whedon, Seth Rogan, many many more. I have a ton of invitations because I am printing them myself. I would love if I got a bunch of RSVP card with celebrity signatures on them so I can make a collage of them.
