Chelsea Clinton's Very Vegan Wedding

In what is being hailed as “the biggest wedding of the year,” former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton will marry investment banker Marc Mezvinsky on an estate in Rhinebeck, New York later this year.

Why are we so excited about the big day? Two words: vegan menu.

An insider recently told Life & Style magazine, “Chelsea is a vegan. The food will include vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free dishes, but there will also be grass-fed organic beef on the menu.”

Besides eating a totally plant-based diet, Clinton is also allergic to gluten and will, therefore, be choosing a gluten-free, vegan wedding cake for the big day. Can anyone say Babycakes?

Of course, this isn’t the first super high-profile wedding to rock a leaner, greener menu. You might remember that in 2008, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi served their guests a delicious plant-based feast. While Chelsea isn’t sticking to an all vegan menu for the 500 attendees, we’re excited to see she’s making sure there are plenty of options.

So just how much will this very vegan bash cost? Rumor has it that Clinton and Mezvinksy are spending about $3 million on the occasion, which works out to be about $6,000 a head. That’s a lot of tofu!

“It will certainly be the most influential of setting trends,” said event planner Diann Valentin. “If anything becomes public knowledge it will immediately set a trend.”

Does this mean we might start seeing more gluten-free, vegan weddings? Our fingers are crossed!

[UPDATE: We’re pretty sure Chelsea’s vegan, gluten-free cake is coming from Lulu Cake Boutique.]
