Marc Mezvinksy and Chelsea Clinton will be getting married on July 31. Big names and a big pricetag are combining to make for headlines about the Clinton wedding. The location of the wedding has been kept secret, but it’s rumored to be planned for Astor Courts.

Details about the Clinton wedding

The Clinton wedding is sure to be a big deal, given the fact that there will be 500 people or more in attendance. The details of the wedding are being kept under wraps, but a few leaked out. Hillary Clinton has revealed she will be wearing Oscar de la Renta. The wedding gown will be made by Vera Wang. The guest list includes friends of the family such as former British prime ministers and Oprah Winfrey.

Breaking down the cost of the Clinton wedding

The cost of the Clinton wedding is also a focus in the news. The wedding will likely cost $2 million. Just the venue is estimated at $400,000. The several-course catered dinner will cost about $1,500 per person. Floral arrangements will cost $ 250,000 or so. Another quarter to half of a million dollars will be spent on security. The job of former president Bill Clinton is to “pick up the bill and lose 15 pounds,” he says.

Criticism of the wedding?

Some people are already calling the Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mazvinsky wedding nothing more than conspicuous consumption. The true question is whether Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mazvinsky are just showing off their family’s wealth, or if they are being reserved. For comparison, Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher spent half a million on their wedding. Kate Middleton and Prince William will probably spend $ 5 million or more on their wedding.
