Photos: White House Weddings! See Which Presidential Brides Said 'I Do' Before Chelsea Clinton!

Chelsea Clinton’s big day is being hailed as the wedding of the century — but she’s not the only presidential bride in our nation’s history!

When the child of a sitting or former U.S. President gets hitched, oftentimes the ceremony becomes a circus of no-fly zones and Secret Service guarding the über-exclusive nuptials. Before Chelsea Clinton, many other presidential children have tied the knot in ceremonies all their own. Whose big day was the “Most Like Chelsea’s” and who kept their nuptials the “Most Under the Radar”? Check out our White House wedding gallery and see for yourself!

Amy Carter: “Most Low Key”

Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own
a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot
of spam remarks? If so how do you reduce it,
any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any support is very
much appreciated.

Chelsea Clinton was certainly a beautiful bride. She just looks so happy in the photos that have been published. And there’s something serene in her looks as well. I thought that added beauty to her face that I’d not seen, or perhaps noticed, before.

BUT, in my opinion Mrs. Clinton was the big surprise. It’s an old saying that all brides are beautiful and I’ve found that to be so. I was (for lack of a better word) astonished at that one picture of the Clintons with the newly married couple! Hillary looked prettier than I’d ever seen her. She should wear her hair swept back from her face all the time, and surely incorporate that plum/mauve color into her wardrobe. Kudos to her and her stylists for the big day.

As for FPOTUS, Bill Clinton, he always looks better with a little less weight on him … but if he loses too much his nose doesn’t fit his face! But, not to be so critical, the photo of him walking his daughter down the aisle is lovely.
