Paparazzi hoping to get an aerial view of Chelsea Clinton’s nuptials are grounded: The FAA declared the area around her wedding site a temporary no-fly zone, the New York Times reports. More from the wedding of the decade:

  • The white tent and gazebo have been erected at Rhinebeck’s Astor Courts estate, where the wedding will be held, Radar and the New York Daily News report.
  • Chelsea will be wearing a custom Vera Wang bridal gown, a source tells the Daily News. (Or maybe not: Click here for more rumors and theories on the all-important question of who designed the dress, or click here to see what she might look like in two possible gowns.)

  • With all these details coming out, it’s no surprise the mayor of Rhinebeck calls the wedding the “worst-kept secret ever.” He tells Radar he still hasn’t been contacted about the arrangements even though $2500 in city council funds have been set aside for security measures.
  • Bill Clinton is a little too excited about the wedding, and Chelsea keeps reminding him she wants to keep things low-key: "When your father is ex-President Bill, a man with a healthy ego, everything starts to become about him," a family friend tells PopEater.
  • One person who won’t be at the wedding: Groom Marc Mezvinsky’s lone uncle, Norton, known for his frequent criticism of Israel. Norton claims, however, it’s a family dispute that kept him off the guest list, and tells the Daily News he’s “extremely hurt.”
One other person who won’t be at the wedding: President Obama, who wasn’t invited. Click here to read more about that. (Read more Chelsea Clinton stories.)
