Come July 31, 2010 the US will experience perhaps one of the biggest weddings of the year. Chelsea Clinton, the only daughter of former American president Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton is all set to tie the knot with long-term beau Marc Mezvinsky. At the moment, the media is abuzz with speculations of who’s invited and who’s been excluded from the guest list. Read on to find out some of the details we have garnered about this lavish summer wedding.
It is known that the guest list will comprise around 400 people. Chelsea has insisted that she must personally know each and every guest (plus-ones are out of the question here). We think that this is definitely the way to go! Television biggies like Oprah Winfrey as well as famous film personality Stephen Spielberg will show up for the former first daughter’s wedding, as will heavy-weight political figures like President Obama and other members of the White House.
Word has it that President Obama apparently offered the White House as a ceremony and reception venue for the Clinton wedding. We wonder why the Clintons declined this grand offer! Perhaps, the Clintons want to keep away from the media buzz that has already begun to surround this wedding. It is said that the ceremony and wedding is slated to take place in the grounds of a private mansion owned by a family friend of the Clintons in Rhinebeck, a historic New York village which is a couple of hours away from Manhattan.
With regards to Chelsea’s 32 year-old fiancé, it is known that his parents are both former members of the Congress. Many Jewish media houses in the US are wondering whether Chelsea will convert to Jewish for her Jewish fiancé Marc. People are also wondering whether it will be a priest, rabbi or both who will officiate the ceremony. It has also come to be known that the wedding menu will be kosher.
When the wedding bells ring for Chelsea and Marc, the Rhinebeck mansion and the surrounding area will be as secure as the White House! According to a source close to the bride-to-be, the wedding may take place in a tent to ensure privacy from air-borne paparazzi and security for many of the high profile attendees! We don’t know how much truth lies in this though.
As for Chelsea’s wedding gown, well rumor has it that since Chelsea is quite traditional when it comes to fashion; it looks like it may be a Vera Wang or Oscar de la Renta. Both designers have an equally classic style that definitely goes with the taste of America’s former First daughter.
The wedding that has been shrouded in secrecy ever since the couple got engaged in November last year, is one wedding we at Marry Me – The Wedding Planners are yearning to know more about. Stay tuned because we are sure that more details on the wedding designers, wedding photographers, caterers and invitees will emerge as the big day draws closer.
