Chelsea Clinton’s wedding price tag could reach $2m
Washington: The total price tag of Chelsea Clinton’s wedding is expected to reach 2 million dollars.
Chelsea and Marc Mezvinsky will tie the knot on July 31and will be surrounded by friends, family and an A-list of celebrities that is likely to include more than one world leader.
Details of the wedding are slowly leaking out - it`s presumed to be in the small upstate New York village of Rhinebeck, reports ABC News.
While nobody but the Clintons knows the exact price, it`s shaping up to be a costly affair: the total price tag could easily reach 2 million dollars.
When Jenna Bush got married two years ago at the president`s ranch in Crawford, Texas, planners estimated it only cost 100,000 dollars for the "down-home" celebration.
Even Claudia Hanlin, founder and partner in The Wedding Library, expects the wedding to be a traditional wedding.
Though she knows Bryan Rafanelli, the head of Rafanelli Events and Clinton`s wedding planner - Hanlin said she does not have any inside information about this top-secret event.
"My assumption is that what they want is going to be a lovely, traditional wedding. Having to do everything in secrecy is a lot harder,” Hanlin said.
Vendors may discount their services because of all the free publicity they will get from this event, but that is doubtful given the extra stress and work involved in this complicated wedding.
"Not telling your staff what time to show up but having them on call, that adds a lot of stress and difficulty to the event," Hanlin added.
