(CNN) – With less than two weeks before 30 year-old Chelsea Clinton's wedding to longtime friend and beau Marc Mezvinsky, 32, on July 31, speculation over the details of the big event has reached a frenzy.
Asked by NBC's Andrea Mitchell on Sunday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would not disclose even a hint at the guest list saying, "It is hers, and it's a family wedding. The people coming are her friends and people that have been meaningful in her life, as it should be."
Media reports have Clinton and Mezvinsky tying the knot at the former estate of John Jacob Astor, Astor Courts in Rhinebeck, NY. Local businesses have fueled the speculation, with one local florist, Lynn Lobotsky, telling CNN that "about a month ago, they started working around the clock on the stone wall along River Road," the road that leads to Astor Courts. "They even worked on Sunday," she said.
Secretary of State Clinton underscored the emotion of the event during her interview with Mitchell. When asked about her husband, former President Clinton, she said, "You should assume that if he makes it down the aisle in one piece, it's going to be a major accomplishment." Earlier this month, Clinton told the Associated Press that "It's a very happy time for my family. ... It truly is the most important thing in my life right now."
Most of the details for the nuptials remain secret, said Secretary of State Clinton, "I'm under very strict orders not to talk about it and I think for the right reasons." The same appears to be true for a host of vendors who may or may not be involved in planning the event. When CNN called a Chappaqua, NY florist rumored to be involved in the planning, the owner of the business immediately took the phone from her subordinate and said, "I have no comment for the media."
