Newlyweds Invited Trumps To Wedding, Surprised To Receive A Congratulatory Letter

Brianna and Timothy Dargert got many valuable gifts when they were married last May, but one thing they received came as a big surprise.

According to the Daily Mail, the Chicago couple had invited Donald and Melania Trump to the wedding. They wanted to show their support for the president, though they understood that he would probably be too busy to show up for their big day.

However, they hoped to at least get a response to their invitation. That did not happen for months, and the newlyweds resigned themselves to not hearing from Trump.

However, several months later, they were amazed when a message from the White House appeared.

The president and first lady wrote: “We join your family and friends in celebrating this joyous occasion and your love and commitment to one another. May your hearts grow fonder and your love deeper each day, and may God continue to bless your life together.”

In an interview with a Fox News affiliate, the couple expressed their appreciation. “We both admire the president greatly, and to receive something from him personally completely touched our hearts,” they said.

“It is wonderful to see that he truly cares about the American people.”

Not all couples want Trump to attend their weddings. The Daily Mail reported that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle decided to not ask the president to join them at their marriage ceremony.

“Although the guest list hasn’t yet been announced, there is no reason he would be invited,” a source in the Royal Household announced.

The statement continued: “Although the wedding is being attended by the queen, it isn’t an official, state occasion. It is a family event."

"Unless the president was a close personal friend, which he is not, there would be no protocol, no reason for him to be invited. Harry and Meghan have made clear that this is very much an occasion and a celebration for their close family and friends.”

Trump called off a trip to Great Britain that had been scheduled for February. British police feared large street protests that could erupt in violence.

The president’s hard-line stance on immigration and his positions on other issues have met with widespread opposition in western Europe. Some British officials, requesting anonymity, have suggested that Trump might visit their country at a later date.

He may instead go to Scotland, where his mother spent her childhood.

Trump claims he canceled the trip to England because he was upset about the country selling the old U.S. embassy in Mayfair for “peanuts.” He previously described the facility as “perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London.”

A new American diplomatic facility has been established elsewhere.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan declared that the embassy issue was not the real reason for the decision. He said Trump “got the message that many Londoners” did not wish to have him as a guest.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn is among those who have called for refusing to welcome the president. The prime minister has the opposite view.

The leader’s office issued a statement this week which warned that “any risk to the crucial U.S.-U.K. relationship is not in our country’s best interests.”

The Daily Mail noted that former President Richard Nixon did not attend British Princess Anne’s wedding in 1973 and that President Ronald Reagan was not on the guest list for Prince Andrew’s wedding in 1986.
