When Presidential Offspring Marry

The anticipation surrounding the impending nuptials of former first daughter Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky has reached a fever pitch, inspiring us to look back at how some other first children celebrated their weddings. It turns out that these high profile affairs have tended to fall into two camps—lavishly produced events with massive guest lists, or intimate anti-weddings. (And we're thinking Chelsea's wedding is poised to fall into the former category.)

Jenna Bush and Henry Hager, May 2008

The couple wed at the Bush family ranch near Crawford, Texas. Jenna told Vogue that she wanted the wedding to be "organic and low key," noting that the couple chose to marry at the ranch because "Henry and I are far less glamorous than the White House." She wore an Oscar de la Renta gown, and her 14 attendants wore dresses by Lela Rose. After the ceremony, the couple's 200 guests enjoyed dinner and dancing under a tent set up on the property. A month after the wedding, President Bush hosted a reception for the newlyweds at the White House.
