Chelsea Clinton is set to marry her fiancé later this summer, with the wedding being quietly arranged by the former White House family. No official information about the wedding has been released by the Clintons, but a source recently revealed some details about the upcoming wedding on CBS’s "Early Show."
Doree Shafrir, who works for an undisclosed New York media publication, discussed details about Chelsea Clinton’s wedding to her longtime boyfriend Mark Mezvinsky. Shafrir spoke with Erica Hill about Clinton’s private life and her upcoming wedding, which will be attended by 400 guests. The Clintons are looking to keep the details quiet in an effort to protect Chelsea’s private life.
"So, the plan right now is for the wedding planner to let all the guests know a week before the wedding exactly where it is," said Shafrir.
While 400 people is still not a small guest list, the size of the wedding has been slimmed down to only include close friends and family.
"The word is that if you don't know Chelsea personally, you're off the list," Shafrir explained. "So, she has to know everyone personally who is going to be invited, which of course eliminates a lot of people who only know Bill and Hillary."
The writing team from Gawker.com is calling Clinton’s wedding a formality to gather political donations for the family, but there is no substantial evidence to confirm that the wedding is a ploy for political fund raising.
Mezvinsky is currently working as an investment banker and the young Clinton was last reported to be attending Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health.
No information has been given regarding honeymoon plans for the couple.
