Chelsea Clinton's wedding good for economy

By News, Published Aug 9, 2010

Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky slipped wedding rings on their fingers just a few weeks ago, but it appears as though their nuptials are already doing wonderful things for the economy.

According to the New York Times, scores of brides are rushing to wedding planners and requesting to have an affair that emulates that of the former first daughter.

In fact, Chelsea's plain white aisle runner, which many believe was simple and beautiful, is currently a hot-ticket-item.

"It was sleek and clean, and I've had clients tell me, 'I don't want anything on my aisle, like Chelsea Clinton,'" JoAnn Gregoli, an owner of Elegant Occasions in New York, told the news outlet. "Brides are looking at that and seeing that less is more."

Also, Bill and Hillary's only child, a lifelong vegan, decided to serve guests a gluten-free cake. Caterer and event planner Andrea Correale told the news source that she's getting requests from brides for other gluten-free menu options.

Chelsea's affair looked gorgeous, so we're not surprised it's inspiring women everywhere. And, it looks like she's receiving the highest form of flattery for her wedding dress - imitations are being churned out as we speak!
