Chelsea Clinton Favors Locals For Her Wedding Favors

wedding favorsDa da dum dum, da da dum dum. Today is the big day for Chelsea Clinton ... it's her wedding day! 500 guests will be rolling into the sleepy town of Rhinebeck in just a few short hours to partake in the event of the year, but as with all weddings, they will also be receiving wedding favors at the end of the night.

So what do guests receive for attending the wedding of the former First Daughter? I have to say, when I heard what they were getting, I was a little shocked -- it wasn't nearly as ostentatious as I had imagined.

According to the Daily Beast, guests will be receiving gift bags assembled by Paper Trails, a local chic emporium of paper goods, jewelry and gifts. The bags will include Rhinebeck Farmers' Market paper calendars, orange tote bags with wooded honeybee prints, and a botte of wine from the Clintons' vineyard.

That's why I love Chelsea Clinton ... even though this event is costing a $5 million dollars (mostly on security), the details are down-to-earth and simple (hello, a Down on the Farm-themed rehearsal dinner -- who doesn't love that?)

She could have easily gone with something pricey from an NYC boutique, but she opted to support local vendors, which I give props to.

Do you think that she should have fancier favors or do you think these are just right?
