Chelsea Clinton Wedding: Fact vs. Fiction

chelsea clinton wedding detailsBill and Hill's little girl is getting married. At least we think she is.

Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton, and her fiance Marc Mezvinsky, an investment banker at 3G Capital Management and the son of two former Democratic members of Congress (one of whom served prison time for fraud), are expected to tie the knot on July 31.

The world has been speculating about the guest list and the location for months. Here's what we know for sure.


The guest list: The New York Times has reported that 400 guests will attend the wedding (that's pretty intimate considering the number of campaign contributors friends the bride's mom and dad must have wanted to include). Some reports say the Obamas were invited and declined; others say the President and First Lady didn't even receive an invite. Is Oprah going? The Huffington Post says yes. Oprah's staff says she wasn't invited. Will Al and Tipper be there? What about Barbra Streisand?

The location: The rumor is that the Clinton-Mezvinsky nuptials will take place in Rhinebeck, at the Astor Courts, a 13,000-foot Beaux Arts pavilion built between 1902 and 1904 for John Jacob Astor IV. But the Clintons have not confirmed that and the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the quaint Hudson Valley town is not the site of the wedding. Even the guests have no idea where they're going. They've apparently been told to plan on getting to New York City and will only be given the exact location one week before the wedding.

There's always the possibility of course that the wedding isn't even taking place. Last year, Chelsea and Marc were rumored to be getting married on Martha's Vineyard at the home of Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen.

The 2009 wedding never took place.

As far as we know.
