Wedding Letters From Obama

How to Get a Congratulatory Wedding Note From the Obamas

If you want to receive a letter from President Obama and his wife expressing congratulations to you on your big day, then all you have to do is send him a wedding invite. Here are three ways to request a greeting:

  1. By mail

    Address the envelope to the following:

    Honorable Barack Obama and Mrs. Obama
    The White House
    Attn: Greetings Office
    1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
    Washington DC 20500

  2. By email

    Or you can also email a request by filling out and submitting an online form through this link, which is actually their preferred method.

  3. By phone

    Call the White House switchboard 1-202-456-1414 and ask for the greetings department.

Although there is a very slim chance that the president will attend the wedding, you will at least, most likely, receive a letter of congratulations. It'll be a nice memento to keep in your wedding scrapbook or to frame and display at home.

My cousin did this! He got a form letter back from Obama. But they also sent one to Robert Pattinson and he signed a photo with congrats to them and mailed it back!
