Forget designer gowns, fancy ice sculptures or artisanally crafted favors — the biggest status symbol in all of wedding-dom has to be having the commander-in-chief as a guest at one’s nuptials.
Chalk up that rare invite acceptance to the close and personal bond that Kass, the family’s longtime personal chef, who’s now an adviser to the president and the head of the first lady’s “Let’s Move!” campaign, shares with the First Family.
How many weddings has the president attended? Not many. Obama confessed he wasn’t invited to the 2010 wedding of former first daughter Chelsea Clinton, and he reportedly turned down an invite to the glitziest wedding of this year — that of reality TV star Kim Kardashian to musician Kanye West. (He did, however, attend official White House photographer Pete Souza’s Rose Garden wedding, so he’s not entirely a wedding no-show.)
And we’re willing to chalk up the Obamas’ eyebrow-raising attire (they were spotted boarding Marine One earlier in the evening in all-black) to a conscious fashion choice and not just an unfamiliarity with that fusty old rule banning wedding guests from wearing somber black.
Let’s hope his chicken dance skills aren’t too rusty.
