Today is the big day. With over $3 million being spent on Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky nuptials it is sure to be a perfect day for them both.
The run up to this wedding has been intense gossip columnist, political pundits and everyone in between has been speculating about what the star studded, surely tasteful, glamour wedding of the Secretary of State’s, Hilary Clinton and former president Bill Clinton’s only daughter.
Just yesterday New York Magazine launched a full list of every little detail calling it “Chelsea Clinton Wedding FAO”. From what time it’s kicking off to, literally, what the toilet facilities for guests would be. The hype has been insane.
Though some might scoff at this excitement I would guess that very few will not be checking out the photos as soon as they are published.
Here’s just a quick run-down of the events for later today.
Where: A glass-walled tent on the grounds of Astor Courts estate in Rhinebeck, upstate New York.
Location of rehearsal dinner: A stone barn on the Grasmere Estate (according to the Daily News)
Guest list: 400 people are expected but exactly who this guests are will remain to be seen. It’s all been done on the down-low. Rumors have it that they will include Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Barbra Streisand, Kate Capshaw and Steven Speilberg, Harold Ickes, Terry McAuliffe, former British Prime Minister John Major, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Ted Turner, and Denise Rich.
The dress: Again a top secret operation. Rumor has it, it’s either Vera Wang or Oscar de la Renta.
Food: “The wedding will be catered by a combination of Blue Ribbon Restaurants, St. Regis Hotels and Resorts and Olivier Cheng Catering and Events,” according to the Wall Street Journal.
Life & Style say that “The food will include vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free dishes” and “grass-fed organic beef on the menu.”
Security: The FAA have declared a no-fly zone of the Astor Courts below 2,000 feet. The Secret Service have the Clinton’s back.
The town of Rhinebeck is also providing extra cash to the police so they can close down the roads surrounding the wedding.
