Get Ready for Election Day 2012: Find Out How The Obamas and The Romneys Wed!

How Barack Obama and Mitt Romney Wed

We’ve caught election fever at The Knot so we couldn’t resist sharing our favorite facts and photos of the candidates’ weddings. While Barack and Mitt might differ on topics like the economy, social issues, and foreign policy, I think one thing we can all agree on is that they looked fabulous on their wedding day!

Barack and Michelle Obama

The Bride: Michelle Robinson, 28

The Groom: Barack Obama, 31

The Date: October 1992

Fun Fact: After two years of dating, the couple was out to dinner when an engagement ring arrived on Michelle’s dessert plate and Barack proposed. Even the first couple can be guilty of having a cliche proposal!

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
