Here Comes the VEGAN Bride! And it’s CHELSEA CLINTON!

Here Comes the VEGAN Bride! And it’s CHELSEA CLINTON!

Every once in a while, a kooky celeb or an off-the-grid rockstar will have a vegan wedding. But a former first daughter? Or anyone, for that matter, associated with the White House? Not until now.

Buzz about Chelsea Clinton’s upcoming wedding — the rumored date is July 31 — is building, and the newest revelation to surface about this democratic darling’s upcoming nuptials is that she will be having a “green” wedding, including vegetarian and vegan (and gluten-free) food.

True, true…she’s also offering grass-fed beef to those guests who want it. But glass half-full, people! Glass. Half. Full.

Just a few years ago it would have been UNHEARD of for the daughter of a president (or the son of a president, or a cousin, heck even a niece or nephew…anyone with any type of presidential blood, ok?) to be associated with veganism. But the tofu’s out of the bag and Chelsea is a vegan, eating a totally plant-based diet. She’s also allergic to gluten. So yay for gluten-free people, too! Chelsea’s in your club.

Folks, vegan food is movin’ on up. And will be served at “the biggest wedding of the year”! When Bill (that’s right — Bill Clinton!) asks Chels if she wants another plate of mushroom paté, she’ll be saying, “I do”!

Congratulations to Chelsea and her fiancé. And for an entire community of vegans who just learned a presidential princess is on their team.

I think "Doggone it!! It is HER wedding...not yours"...she can and should serve whatever she desires...or can afford...If she is lucky and hard-working, this will be the only wedding she has. Leave her alone...you would abhor anyone getting into YOUR wedding plans...just wish her well and let it go.

Have a wonderful wedding and a happy marriage!

When I married 8 years ago I served international all vegan/vegetarian food (Indian, Mexican, Japaneese, Greek and Italian). It was great and everyone raved and I don't think they realized there was no meat. Since then I have gone completly vegan. I will serve all vegan if I can ever get my husband to renew our vows lol.

I'm trying to go Vegetarian at the moment and hope to go the whole way in the future.

I am thrilled to know that Chelsea Clinton is a vegan: another person who is living consciously.

Umm, Monica, what costs more? A pound of beef or a pound of veggies? A vegan/vegetarian dish would no doubt be cheaper than a steak dish. Get real.
