Chelsea Clinton announces engagement by e-mail?

Update – July 31st, 2010 – Check out the pictures from Chelsea Clinton’s wedding here.

Couldn’t she have just updated her facebook status to “Engaged” and got the media circus going crazy just for fun?

Chelsea Clinton and longtime boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky are engaged, the two announced on Nov. 27, 2009. In a mass email to friends and family, the couple said they are looking to get married until next summer. A Clinton spokesman said he believed the couple got engaged on Thanksgiving in New York, according to multiple reports. Clinton, 29, and Mezvinsky became friends in Washington and attended Stanford University together

Here’s a copy of the e-mail:

“We’re sorry for the mass e-mail but we wanted to wish everyone a belated Happy Thanksgiving! We also wanted to share that we are engaged! We didn’t get married this past summer despite the stories to the contrary, but we are looking toward next summer and hope you all will be there to celebrate with us. Happy Holidays! Chelsea & Marc.”

I am pleased that Chelsea is respecting the Clinton’s wishes of “Don’t get married before you’re 30” edict. She’s 29 now, but with a February birthday she’ll hit the magic number in plenty of time for the summer wedding. Clinton spokesman Matt McKenna said he believed the engagement happened “before Thanksgiving.” Others close to Clinton also indicated the engagement happened earlier and was only announced Friday.

Mezvinsky is a son of former Pennsylvania Rep. Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky and former Iowa Rep. Ed Mezvinsky, longtime friends of the Clintons.  It will be an interfaith marriage; Mezvinsky is Jewish, while Clinton grew up attending Methodist Church with her mother. Bill Clinton is Southern Baptist.  Former White House Press Secretary Mike McCurry describes Chelsea as “poised, professional, and personable daughter of a marriage that is complicated but produces lots of genuine love.” (we will see about that)

Do you think they will actually get married this time? Should Chelsea wear a white wedding dress?  Which Jewish wedding tradition do you think will actually make it into this highly sought after wedding, please vote below:

  1. Is it just me, or does Chelsea look like a young Hillary and her fiance, Marc, a young Bill? Just look back at old photos. A funny coincidence indeed. I wish them all the happiness and joy marriage can bring.

  3. Its wonderful to have Chelsea and Marc wedded after a long relationship; CONGS. Marc ; consider yourself a lucky guy ’cause many out there envy getting into such a wonderful family but cant. To Marc and Chelsea; allow me to become a family friend from Africa;Uganda where Chelsea’s mum Rhoda is about to pay a working vist.
    May the Almighty God bless your dear marriage.

    1. Her parents told her they “preferred” her to wait until 30 so she would really know what she wanted. Chelsea also just happened to not meet the right guy until only a few years ago so I think she accidently didn’t get married until 30. She’s definately in their good graces with this guy and all of his connections. Looks like it could have been “prearranged marriage” at first sight!!

  4. I have a school teacher from Moffat County was married to a Jewish man for 42 years. She was cremated without any funeral.
