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

She is stunning. So many people gave her such a hard time growing up, but she turned out to be a beautiful woman. Congrats Chelsea! Love your gown.

Let’s nip the “sick Bill” rumors in the bud: I live in Chappaqua and saw Bill recently, when he dropped into a local restaurant for take-out. He was bounding around, greeting people, and looked happy and healthy, not gaunt or thin. He does look skinny in the photo, but that’s probably because the suit doesn’t fit well — he’s dropped 20 pounds. Plus, it was an emotional day for all.

Congratulations to the bride and groom and both families.

They all look just as they should, amazingly happy. Chelsea looks great and her gown is magnificently beautiful. Looks like a perfect wedding.

Do you think maybe Chelesa was looing out for the health of her dad, and her wedding was the perfect excuse to get him to drop a few pounds, it is well known that he loves the junk foods…. they look great. I hope she has a lifetime of happiness!!!!

I guess I’m the only one who doesn’t like the gown. Maybe in person, I would like it, but from the pics I don’t like the belt and bussled front. The stems on her flowers seem too long too. Bill really looks old and gaunt. Wish everyone well though.

Bill’s doctor had been telling him for some time to lose the weight. His daughter used her wedding as an excuse to request it again. It was a request out of love due to his health issues, not vanity.

She looks pretty in her dress. But Bill looks sick. Hope he’s not.

You who try to see the negative in everything! Chelsea stays on her Dad because he eats the wrong foods because of his heart and other medical issues that a man of his age has! She loves him so much that she gave him that challenge so that he could stick to his diet more for his life than her wedding! It’s hard to encourage parents about their declining health, so give her the benefit of loving care. Her smile says it all, the dress is 2nd to her lovely happy smile in this dress that is beautiful. Chelsea had her day with the ones that care the most about her happiness! She looks stunningly beautiful and thrilled with joy!
