Here Comes the Bride. Now Go Home.

Friday, July 30, 2010

The details of Chelsea Clinton's wedding have been as closely guarded as national security intelli...oh, wait.

Some information has leaked out: WWD insisted the person in the very floppy hat was Chelsea heading into Vera Wang for a dress fitting. TMZ is one of several outlets that reported on the event's $15,000 porto-potties. And the New York Post gave us yet another chance to consider Bill Clinton's midsection.

The wedding is reportedly pricing out at between $3 million and $5 million. For comparison's sake -- or really just for the pure voyeuristic pleasure -- here's a slideshow of photos from the weddings of past presidential offspring.

Still in all, the Clinton's only child has managed to keep her big day mostly under wraps. And, as Gail Collins reminds us, while presidents themselves are polarizing, presidential kids have -- often miraculously -- turned out just fine.

WNYC's Jenna Flanagan scouted out the town of Rhinebeck, looking for clues about the big day....and gauging the town's readiness for the whole thing to wrap up already. View her slideshow below.
