What a $250,000 flower budget will buy you
Although Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky have decided not to speak publicly about their highly anticipated nuptials this weekend, the media has been buzzing about what they are calling “The Wedding of the Decade”. Well, from what I’ve been reading, it seems as if the pricetag for this lavish wedding is as high as the expectations!
It is rumored that Chelsea will be spending $250,000 on… drumroll please… FLOWERS!! According to The Stir, Jeff Leatham, star of the TLC show Flowers Uncut, is the rumored floral designer. Along with his TV debut, Jeff has worked with a plethora of A-Lister’s like Madonna, Oprah (a rumored guest at the wedding), and Tina Turner. He also did the flowers for Eva Langoria and Tony Parker’s wedding. Nice resume’!
Leatham reportedly loves to incorporate long stems, barely tucked in flowers, or flowers that simply lay across the top of a tall clear vase in his arrangements. And his wedding trademark? Bouquets carefully placed on tabletops in a way that even DaVinci would be jealous of his artistry. He says he likes to lay the bouquets (out of vases) on the tables so the guests can easily take the flowers home. I’m curious to what kind of flowers Chelsea has chosen and even more excited to see what Jeff Leatham does with them (and with the $250,000 budget)!!
