You have to read the Obamas' response to this cute couple's wedding invite

If you invite a former president and first lady to your wedding, there's a good chance they are not going to show up.

But if you invite the Obamas, there's at least a chance that you'll get a reply with warm wishes (on some quality stationery).

Liz Whitlow sent Barack and Michelle Obama an invitation to her wedding to Eddie Edgar in March, and the former first couple responded on Monday, according to a tweet by Whitlow's daughter, Brooke, that has gone viral.

"Congratulations on your wedding,'' the note reads. "We hope that your marriage is blessed with love, laughter, and happiness and that your bond grows stronger with each passing year. This occasion marks the beginning of a lifelong partnership, and as you embark on this journey, know you have our very best for the many joys and adventures that lie ahead."

The Obamas are known to make a splash at weddings, whether it's Barack serving as a groomsman for long-time aide Marvin Nicholson or crashing a wedding after playing a round of golf in San Diego.

Brooke also noted in a follow-up tweet that her mother only invited one president to the wedding.

Whitlow, who lives in Texas, is not the first person to receive a warm response from the Obamas on the occasion of a milestone event.

Many others sent notes to the former first couple over the years about proud moments in their lives and also received responses, which they shared in replies to Brooke Whitlow's tweet.

While the Obamas' address has changed from the White House to the Obama Foundation, the greetings have kept on coming.

There is even a section on the foundation website where people can put in a request for one so that one day they can say, "Thanks Obamas!"
