Chelsea Clinton Wedding
Contest Directions: Chelsea Clinton's wedding day is finally here - and it's dominating the news today. The media already called it America's "Royal" Wedding - because of the number and caliber of the guests and because the wedding price tag has by far beaten all celebrity weddings and even Royal weddings in history. The total wedding price is $5 million, out of which $3 mil is paid by papa Bill, and the other $2 mil is being laid off on US Taxpayers as Secret Service costs for protecting former president Clinton and foreign heads of state, such as the presidents of France and Italy and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who are among the 500 invited guests along with Barbara Streisand, Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey, and Ted Turner. All 500 guests will be asked to surrender their mobile phones and any recording devices before being subjected to security checks suitable for an international summit.
For comparison, when country music star Keith Urban married actress Nicole Kidman in 2006, their wedding cost $250,000. This large sum hardly counts as a celebrity wedding. When mega-millionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump married model Melania Knauss, the wedding bill was $1,000,000. The marriages of Madonna and film director Guy Ritchie, Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren, and Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones pushed up the cost of celebrity marriages to $1.5 million. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes upped the ante to $2,000,000. The cost of the wedding of Diana Spencer to Prince Charles? $3,000,000.
Chelsea Clinton's is getting married to investment banker Mark Mezvinsky, but let's photoshop how this "Royal" wedding could be between Chelsea Clinton and somebody else. To celebrate, we're also throwing a "Royal jackpot" for this contest by doubling it.

This contest is fueled by the following news: The wedding of Chelsea Clinton - the only daughter of former US President Bill Clinton and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton - took place in the suburbs of New York. The wedding ceremony of Chelsea and Marc Mezvinsky took place according to "mixed religious practices", and was solemnized by a rabbi and a Methodist Priest. The Clintons had to shell out 3 million USD for the wedding of their daughter. The only daughter of former US President Bill Clinton and present US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton married old friend and investment banker Marc Mezvinsky. The grandiose wedding ceremony took place at the Astor Courts estate in New York State. The parents, stated that they are filled with "pride and emotion" when they looked at their daughter getting married. During the wedding flying over the Hudson valley was prohibited and roads were opened only for guests arriving in limousines. TV Host Oprah Winfrey, film director Steven Spielberg, Hollywood star Tom Hanks and singer Barbara Streisand were amongst the approximately 500 invited guests. Confirming that the wedding took place on Saturday evening, the Clinton's came out with the statement: "We could not have asked for a more perfect day to celebrate the beginning of their life together and we are very happy to welcome Marc into our family. On behalf of the newly-wed couple we would like to thank the hospitable people of Rhinebeck and all, who congratulated us on this special event". Earlier, actor Ted Danson and his wife Steenburgen told the journalists in the city of Rhinebeck, where many of the invitees stayed, that they were happy to be present at wedding ceremony. "I know her from her childhood days so it is a very big occasion. She is a remarkable girl", - told Steenburgen. According to experts from the Associated Press the wedding ceremony cost somewhere around 3 million dollars. Owners of shops and restaurants, as well as the caterers for the wedding, were requested to keep the details of the wedding a secret and local residents were offered wine bottles for the inconvenience caused due to wedding ceremony. On Friday evening, hundreds of people had gathered in Rhinebeck to welcome Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, who arrived at the hotel "Beekman Arms". Marc Mezvinsky and Chelsea Clinton have known each other since their teenage years. A little earlier, Bill Clinton, looking cheerful and fresh, had dined in one of the city restaurants. Then, he allocated time to shake hands with the employees of the kitchen and visitors, and then came out to a rejoicing crowd greeting him with "Congratulations!" and "We love you!" "We like this place", said Bill Clinton to the journalists. - "Chelsea also loves this place". On the question about his views on his future son-in-law, Clinton relied: "I like him very much. I sincerely respect him. Hillary also likes him". Many people had doubts about the religious traditions involved in the wedding ceremony. 30 yr old Chelsea is a Christian from the Methodist Church and Marc Mezvinsky is a 32 yr old Jew. His parents are former congressmen Marjorie Margolis Mezvinsky from Pennsylvania and Edward Mezvinsky from Iowa. They are close friends of the Clintons and have been for quite a long time. The newlyweds were friends during teenage years in Washington and both studied at Stanford University. Presently, they live in New York, where Mezvinsky works for the investment fund G3 Capital.
