Tasting Tofu At The Altar — Should Vegans Serve Meat At Their Weddings?

To meat or not to meat – it’s a question that vegans and vegetarians getting married have to consider when planning their weddings. And it’s a debate that was recently reignited by vegan Chelsea Clinton’s marriage to Marc Mezvinsky.

Chelsea – who is also allergic to gluten (ouch!) – had a mostly vegan wedding, but provided beef for her meat-grazing guests. But some vegans and veggies say that they shouldn’t have to cater to carnivores on their special day. Keep reading »

Chelsea Getting Married!

Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky were married in Rhinebeck, NY yesterday in front of 400 guests including Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen and Madeline Albright. The bride wore Vera Wang, the groom wore Burberry, and the interfaith ceremony was officiated by a reverend and a rabbi. Of the nuptials, former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said:

“Today, we watched with great pride and overwhelming emotion as Chelsea and Marc wed in a beautiful ceremony at Astor Courts, surrounded by family and their close friends. We could not have asked for a more perfect day to celebrate the beginning of their life together, and we are so happy to welcome Marc into our family. On behalf of the newlyweds, we want to give special thanks to the people of Rhinebeck for welcoming us and to everyone for their well-wishes on this special day.”

Quotable: Barack Obama Wasn’t Invited To Chelsea Clinton’s Wedding

“I was not invited to the wedding because I think Hillary and Bill, properly, want to keep this thing for Chelsea and her soon-to-be husband. You don’t want two presidents at one wedding! All the secret service, guests going through [metal detectors], all the gifts being torn apart.”

Barack Obama tells the ladies of “The View” that he wasn’t actually invited to Chelsea Clinton’s wedding. So sad—we would have loved the mental image of him and Bill dancing to “Celebration” at the reception. Make sure to catch Obama’s “View” appearance at 11 a.m. EST. [People] Keep reading »

How Chelsea Clinton’s $3 Million Wedding Stacks Up To Other Celebrity Nuptials

We’ve already shown you the $15K porta-potties that the Clintons have rented for Chelsea Clinton’s wedding, which folks think will be going down this Saturday at the estate owned by John Jacob Astor IV in upstate New York. (Though, no one really knows for sure because it’s a tightly guarded secret.) Wedding experts are estimating that the big day will set the Clintons back somewhere between $3 and $5 million. Some of the big-ticket items: an estimated $200K for security, $600K for deluxe, air-conditioned tents, and whatever they shelled out for the Vera Wang or Oscar de la Renta dress. Supposedly, the invitations for the wedding cost $150 apiece. And the Clintons will, no doubt, be paying to shut down air space over the estate so that paparazzi can’t cruise by in helicopters.

So how does this stack up to other mega-over-the-top celebrity weddings? We’ll give the Clintons the benefit of the doubt and go with the lower estimate of $3 million. Keep reading »
