Anybody sending letters to celebrities for best wishes to groom or...

We're both massive Disney folk so we sent invites to Mickey and Minnie Mouse and Cinderella and Prince Charming c/o Disneyworld and got replies / cards / good wishes from them.

I also tried sending to Barack Obama but didn't get anything back - apparently if you're in the US you usually get a response, seemingly they didn't want to spring for international postageimage

    Hi girls, have a bit of faith in your team!!! When my H2B was on tour in afghan in 2011 I wrote to united and had a signed letter back from Sir Alex! Certainly perked him up!!..... Not sure he would want one off Moyes though hahahaimage

    I should probably also add for those interested, at the same time I wrote to Cheryl Cole, Hollyoaks girls, (he was on tour with army!!) Ricky Hatton, and a few other sporting heroes and only other I got a reply from was David Haye who sent a large signed photo from a fight with a personal message saying "To Jonathan stay safe mate all the best David" which I thought was amazing, espec the message. 

    Word of warning - it took some time to receive, so long he was home and it was nearly Xmas so I saved it as a surprise Xmas day! 

    Also make sure you pay the return postage in advance.

    I've never heard of this. I'd love one from the queen. And the chuckle brothers. And Sean bean. And Matt Damon.

  • i'm so glad i've seen this, its not anything i'd ever thought of but it sounds like a great idea!

    How do u get a message to queen?

  • Weddin crazyWeddin crazy Posts: 1,743

    Invite her or letter requesting wedding message?

  • MrsB2014MrsB2014 Posts: 465

    I researched this a bit after rading the thread and came across and article about a guy who sent over 300 handwriten letters and got loads of replies - then made them into a book for a his bride for the day.

    It got em thinking, if you had the time and the patience to wait for replies (I do not, only 85 days to go!) this could be a really unique table plan idea. You could name the tables after the celebrity on the plan and then display the actualt letter on the coresponding table - in a frame or laminated for protection. It certainly would surprise your guests.

    I've emailed Spurs and they have replied saying they can't promise anything but they will try to get something out to me from the team.  I offered to send an SAE to return a letter to me but they said the email with the name & address & deadline was fine.  I really hope something arrives...9 weeks til the wedding day!

    I hadn't thought to.......but I can think of a few celebs to contact image

  • I did.. I got 4 messages from Hubby's favourite bands.. and read them out during our speechless.. he was pretty impressed..

    took me over a year to hunt contact details down and get replies.. but so worth it.. to see his face when I read them out

  • I have contacted a few of h2b's favourites, i have a reply back from Arsen Wenger, so far.

    Just waiting on 2 or 3 more but if i don't get them at least i have Arsen's message to read out, he will be thrilled.

    All very exciting!

    We are planning on inviting Mickey & Minnie and my h2b is a massive Chelsea fan so was hoping to post something to them too!

    Did everyone write letters to them or send an invite? I am unsure what to write! x

  • I have sent all emails initially, Arsenal came back and asked me to write a letter to Arsen which i did and got a reply back.

  • MrsE2be2014MrsE2be2014 Posts: 1,458

    MrsH2be2014 - what did you put in the letter? Did you invite him or ask him to pass on best wishes?

  • When Arsenal replied to my email, they asked me to put both bride and groom name in the letter, so he wrote to us both.

    I just asked for best wishes.

    hope that helps.
