Following in the tradition of other star brides like Carrie Underwood, Chelsea Clinton had not only one, but two gorgeous wedding dresses from designer (and wedding guest) Vera Wang! The bride swapped out her strapless ivory gown with a swirling ballgown skirt of laser cut organza that she walked down in the aisle for a tulle Grecian-inspired gown with a black ribbon belt and a criss-cross back for the reception. No word on whether her bridesmaids changed out of their own Vera Wang strapless lavender chiffon gowns with plum bows for the party portion of the night. Wang was thrilled to have been a part of the wedding, saying in a release that “It was an honor and a privilege to dress Chelsea on her wedding day.” –Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

his gaunt look was just a shock at first. Keep going back and you can noticed the healthy glow. Way to go Mr. President. Somber look of giving away the only and very lovely daughter Chealsea. The best looking gown, EVER, of any celebrities!

Bill had to go on a restricted diet after finding out he had serious heart disease, several years ago. That’s when he started to lose a lot of weight. I hope it’s also not something even more serious now.

Chelsea was a beautiful bride! President Clinton had said it was going to be an emotional day. I’m sure he was trying to keeping it together. Best wishes to everyone for a lifetime of health and happiness! :)

Is it just me or does he look depressed?

I hear people saying they spent an obscene amount of money on this wedding while people are starving. Well I think its ok they give her the kind of wedding they want to give her BUT TWO dresses is uneeded and , a bit gluttonish. 2 dresses-c’mon.

@Patio- Since you mentioned your an oncology nurse, why would you make such a judgement call without having the facts? I’m glad my mom isn’t one of your patients. I’ve read that his daughter wanted him to lose 15 lbs., for the wedding. With the problems he’s had in the past with his heart, maybe he decided to lose a little more.

He looks like a man who may have cried a little….

Bill looks depressed because he had to spend time with his wife! (lol)

Chelsea looked very elegant and I loved the long, traditional veil. She was also smart to go with a slightly off-white dress because it goes better with her skin tones than stark white. Bill does look like he’s trying not to cry–this is his only child so I’m sure it was tough!

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! She deserves to be happy after all she has been through publicaly. Congrats and best wishes to Chelsea & Marc and congrats to the Clintons for raising such as elegant, poised, educated and well-adjusted daughter. They should be proud.
