Imagine spending $250,000 on flowers. Or $20,000 on a cake. How does $15,000 to $20,000 for toilets sound?
Sounds like the first Wedding of the Century.
Wedding industry experts say that when Chelsea Clinton gets married Saturday at a private estate in upstate New York, the tab could hit $2 million, $3 million or more — a canape or two above the average $24,000 that most American newlyweds will shell out this year.
Most weddings host about 150 guests; the Clinton-Mezvinsky nuptials are expected to have 400 to 500.
Details have been notoriously scarce, but Sally Kilbridge, deputy editor of Brides, said industry insiders have gathered enough intelligence to sketch out roughly what sort of shindig the daughter of President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will put on when she marries her longtime boyfriend, investment banker Marc Mezvinsky.
Some estimates put the cost at close to $5 million, but Kilbridge said Chelsea Clinton won't let it get too extreme.
3 million! Are you kidding me?!? Where's all the liberal badmouthing about how ridiculous it is to spend such a crazy amount of money for a wedding? During a recession no less? George W. Bush only spent $100,000 for his daughter's wedding and the MSM critics were all over that. Then too Chelsea Clinton is such a pretentious douche that you just know there's little chance this wedding lasts longer than a couple of years.
