The staff at elaney has not yet received our invites to your wedding! We are sure there was a mistake; however, there are no hard feelings. We assume you would like for us to show up anyway. See ya in Rhinebeck. Muah!
We are completely caught up in Chelsea’s wedding plans! A $2 million affair?!? It’s too good for a blogger to be true. We found some deets about where the money is going:
- The rumored location for the high-profile event (Astor Courts), could cost between $125,000 to $200,000 alone.
- The catering, being done by Blue Ribbon Restaurants, St. Regis and Olivier Cheng Catering and Events, is estimated to cost $750,000. One company might be doing the cocktail hour with another taking care of the main meal and the third one doing late-night snacks.
- Wedding planner Claudia Hanlin told ABC News that each company may charge around $500 a head, given the remote nature of the wedding site, along with having to share the kitchen and coordinate with two other caterers. That works out to $1,500 per guest (there’s rumored to be 500 of them) for food alone.
- $250,000 for the flowers
- $40,000 for the music
- $35,000 for photography
- $30,000 for security
It’s still a mystery whether she is wearing Oscar or Vera…Oprah and Whoopi are both expected to be there… Is $2 million disgustingly ridiculous for a wedding? Of course! Are we so excited we can hardly wait to see the photos? YES! You go girl. You’ve come a long way since our study abroad group used to snap photos of you making out with your old BF Ian at Blackwell’s book store at Oxford University.
