Ivanka Trump married
Jared Kushner on Sunday at one of daddy Donald Trump’s billion or so Trump
National Golf Clubs, People magazine reports.
Ivanka, who wore a Vera Wang gown and will
keep her name professionally, has been keeping more than 400,000 of her
friends updated with wedding and engagement details via Twitter.
But only 500 friends
seem to have made it to the ceremony. Hmm. Did confusion about the location keep
turnout well below the 400,000 mark?
In what I can only describe as a crushing blow for L.A.-area
paparazzi (though I’m maybe the only one who’ll describe it that way -- Ivanka who?)
the ceremony was held not at the
Donald’s newish course down the road on the Palos Verdes Peninsula but rather at
Daddy’s links in Bedminster,
N.J. Not to be confused with his other New Jersey
golf course in Colts Neck, of course. It’s tough enough for me to remember who
in my family even plays golf. Totally
mind-boggling the kinds of things the super-rich have to keep straight – but
somehow the car services get it right, I guess. Even Regis Philbin’s
people. Not so lucky were the legions of Twitter followers, who if they
were indeed real, might have been wondering if their invites had gotten lost in
Or could hundreds of thousands of people, dazzled
by that 5.22-carat Trump diamond, simply not firm up workable travel plans
in the space of such a short
Perhaps New Jersey just made more sense for the couple’s
celebration, what with Ivanka’s gig on “Celebrity
Apprentice” (spoiler alert: clues to the Season 9 cast) and that little
office job as an executive
vice president for the Trump Organization. It’s also not so far for now-hubby
Jared, who publishes the New York
Observer and has been known to dabble in real estate
himself. (Their needs before ours? Whose nutty idea what that?)
Still, the PV peninsula is so pretty in fall. Oh, well.
By the way, if you were thinking of sending them a little
something to mark the occasion, the New
York Times has been kind enough to point us to a few of Jared and Ivanka's wedding gift registries.
