Ms. Haddad-Friedman and her fiancé, Alex Bero, had arranged a modest wedding in the New York town of Rhinebeck, a town near Bard College, where they met as undergraduates. But rumors are flying that Ms. Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky also plan to wed in the small town, creating potential logistical nightmares in catering and transportation for the future Mrs. Bero.
The bride describes a low-budget wedding, where she and her mom (a single mother who “worked the last two years tirelessly as a construction and estate manager” to finance the event) have taken on the planning themselves. The Clinton-Mezvinsky wedding will be a different story. Click through our slideshow to see how the weddings compare:
