The dust has settled on the wedding of the year, and details are finally making their way to the public. But for all the talk of a celebrity-filled affair, it turns out the vast majority of the 450 guests at Chelsea Clinton's wedding were of the non-famous variety.
Yes, there was Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen, but rumored guests Steven Spielberg, Barbara Streisand and Oprah Winfrey were nowhere to be found. The rest of the big names were political figures, like former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright -- but not President Barack Obama. He wasn't invited.
Well, not the only, Ted...
Vera Wang was on hand for any last minute snafus with the dress, which the LA Times describes as a "strapless raw-edged laser cut swirling silk organza ball skirt " with a "train with a silk tulle diagonally draped bodice, accented by an embellished belt." Fancy!
As for logistics, the New York Times sat down with event planner Bryan Rafanelli, who dispelled a few rumors circulating around the celebration.
$150 invitations? Not on your life.
A $15,000 porta-potty stable? Hardly.
The few details Rafanelli is forthcoming with definitely don't rock the boat, but he did reveal the cake was gluten-free -- probably the only thing about this wedding that will get a smile out of Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
