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 »

The Daily Beast Makes Chelsea Clinton Look Vaguely Skeletal

Chelsea Clinton’s wedding is going down this weekend, complete with its $15K porta-potties. And folks can’t stop talking about her wedding dress—will it be a Vera Wang or an Oscar de la Renta? Websites, magazines, and newspapers have been fighting about this for months, while the Clinton camp hasn’t let out a murmur on the issue. And apparently, Chelsea had appointments at the studios of both designers yesterday, which isn’t helping the speculation die down. The Daily Beast has a big article today about the debate and in it, they’ve pasted Chelsea’s head atop of gowns by both designers. But, uh, they totally made her into a bobblehead! Seriously, this is some bad Photoshopping. Couldn’t they have figured out the right head and body proportions not to make her look so skeletal? Are anyone’s arms really that thin? And do you care which designer’s dress she is wearing? Either way, I’m sure it will be gorgeous and uber-pricey. [Daily Beast, PopEater] Keep reading »

A Porta-Potty Fit For A Clinton

So, when Bill Clinton wants to take a nervous crap on daughter Chelsea‘s wedding day, this is where he’ll do it. You’re looking at the porta-potties the Clintons have rented for the occasion at a grand total of $15,000. It goes without saying that these bathrooms are nicer than mine, not to mention The Frisky’s ladies room, where we recently found a cockroach! However, we do have a stack of gossip mags in ours, so there. [via Gawker] Keep reading »

Chelsea Clinton’s Wedding: 10 Things We Hope Happen

Generally, I’m not that enthused about weddings. But if I got an invite to Chelsea Clinton‘s wedding to Marc Mezvinsky, I’d be there in a second. After a year of speculation, new details have finally emerged about the mega-party of the summer. It looks like it’ll be happening on July 31st. While people thought it’d be taking place on Martha’s Vineyard, it now appears that Chelsea will be tying the knot in upstate New York at the estate formerly owned by John Jacob Astor IV, an amazing spot that has 50 acres of land, a facade modeled after Versailles, indoor tennis courts and a marble pool. Chelsea is going to rock an Oscar de la Renta gown, but, beyond that, we don’t know a whole lot about what’ll be going down. [Huffington Post, NY Daily News]

Since the Clintons are being super-secretive, we have no choice but to speculate. After the jump, check out a few things we hope happens on Chelsea’s big day. Keep reading »

Quotable: Chelsea Clinton Puts Bill On A Wedding Diet

“She doesn’t think I’m in shape to handle it. You know, she told me the other day, she said, ‘Dad the only thing you gotta do is walk me down the aisle and you need to look good.’ So I said ‘Well, what’s your definition [of good]?’ And she said: ‘Oh, about 15 pounds.’ So I’m halfway home.”

Skip Bridal Stores If You Want To Find A Unique Wedding Dress

Even though I have no plans to get hitched myself at the moment, wedding dresses are very much on my mind right now. Our blogger Nina is presently searching for one, as is my dear friend Courtney, and another pal is actively not searching yet because she’s too intimidated by the entire process. Another, erm, “acquaintance” who has settled on a fiancé but not a gown is Chelsea Clinton, whom Hillary said (in a recent CNN interview) wasn’t quite there yet.

Why is the search so damn frustrating? Maybe the problem is with the bridal gown market in general. Here’s one solution. Keep reading »
