The hottest ticket in the world right now is an invitation to the July 31st wedding of Chelsea Clinton. Reports are now that the Clinton wedding price tag is well over $2 Million dollars! Compared to Jenna Bush’s wedding costing only $100,000. One has to ask if the money would be better spent helping the hungry in Haiti?
Of course, the real question is, who is paying for it? According to ABC News, Chelsea will be spending $20,000 just on make up and her hair. Catering is estimated to be another $750,000, some $1,500 per guest. Flowers alone will run $250,000! Invitations, $40,000 to $50,000. Lighting is a mere $75,000 to $100,000. Her wedding dress costs $15,000. Photographers and video another $60,000. The band will be $40,000. Renting the Astor mansion in Rhinebeck, NY is said to be somewhere between $125,000 to $200,000.
Given the fact who the Clintons are and that Chelsea is their only child, her wedding to Marc Mevinsky is a special occasion. Plus, security will be expensive, as the A-List guests will include the Obamas, Oprah and other celebrities. The groom’s father, former Congressman Edward Mezvinsky will also attend, since he was released from prison in 2008 after committing some $10 Million dollars in bank, mail and wire fraud.
Now Chelsea does have a good job, working for hedge fund Avenue Capital group, run by Democrat money bag Marc Larsy. Bill Clinton also is rolling in dough these days earning millions with speaking engagements, especially in Dubai. Hillary only earns about $186,000 per year as Secretary of State. But keep in mind that the presidential campaign for Hillary is still deep in unpaid debt.
So who is paying for the Chelsea Clinton wedding price tag? Where is the $2 Million dollars coming from? Is it really necessary? Considering how Bill Clinton is calling for donations to help the earthquake victims in Haiti, would it not have been more humane to have a simple wedding? Not to mention the suffering here in America has millions struggle to pay the bills and feed their families. When the Elite need to party, they do not care about us “small people”.
