chelsea clinton

Chelsea Clinton, a babe America has watched abound up and bloom into a admirable adolescent woman (those 'SNL' skits be damned), her upcoming wedding is the abutting activity we get to a royal wedding of sorts.

So, of course, anybody is aggravating to amount out her upstate New York bridal to fiance Marc Mezvinsky traveling down this weekend. The New York Daily News, has the marriage costing between $3 and $5 million. ABC pegs the price at $2 million.

Say what? Political assembly and association who apperceive Chelsea and her parents alarm the cool cost estimates absolutely absurd. Chelsea, for one, has never been a big spender, nor does she adore affected her parent's celebrity status. So, the hand-painted alley that the News intimated she will airing down on her big day, apparently not happening.

Putting it in perspective, the estimated amount tag on then-presidential babe Jenna Bush if she married at the president's Crawford, Texas, agronomical was abandoned about $100,000. Of course, Jenna got that area for free. ABC is pegging the area amount abandoned for Chelsea's marriage as high as $200,000 for Astor Courts, a abode advised for John Jacob Astor IV in 1902. The abode is on the market for $12 million. It aswell happens to be endemic by Clinton donors Kathleen Hammer and Arthur Seelbinder, who were absurd to rake their acceptable accompany over the coals. Plus, all the publicity from this high profile marriage will apparently just drive up the auction price. Everybody wins.

Yes, the bedfellow account for this weekend is big. It will apparently agitate down to about 400 of the Clintons' friends, family assembly as able-bodied as baddest celebrities and business assembly of mom and dad, a account that includes various active of accompaniment and titans of industry.

Because there are so abounding high-profile guests, the Clintons will absolutely charge to bandy a tasteful affair, but they don't accept to go over the top. With a account of just beneath $1 million, the Clintons can absorb $2,500 per guest. That gives them affluence of banknote to play with for what is already getting billed as the Marriage of the Century.

Chelsea's preferences aside, the absolute Clinton association is annihilation if not media-savvy. Dad is the arch of one of the better accommodating organizations on the planet, The Clinton Global Initiative, and mom is Barack Obama's ambassador to the world.

"How would it attending if Hillary Clinton were assuming up in Pakistan to allege to women who acquire beneath than a dollar a day, or if Bill went to his donors to ask for money to body wells in Africa afterwards they just spent Liza Minelli-style money on their daughter's wedding. These guys are way too acute for that," one political consultant, who has formed with the Clintons, told us.

The academic bold will assuredly appear to an end in about 48 hours, if baddest marriage data will be released to the press, and if they are, we will see a account of a tasteful and admirable activity that still cost less than Tom and Katie's nups. Mark our words..
