Billionaire investor George Soros, 82, is sparing no expense for his September wedding to his third wife, 41-year-old Tamiko Bolton.
The father-of-five and his much younger girlfriend have reportedly printed about 1,000 invitations for the ‘extremely color-coordinated’ celebrations but have only sent out ‘several hundred’ to family and friends.
Guests will be treated to several events in different locations, but won’t have to splash out on a gift for the couple, who got engaged last August.
‘All the food will be farm-to-table and the flowers will be in-season flowers. They will not be shipped in from elsewhere,’ a source told the Daily News.
Bolton’s wedding planner was spied meeting with assistants at the Openhouse Gallery on Mulberry St. two weeks ago, and watched models trying on different caterer clothing.
‘It was a full-on runway show for the planner to decide on outfits for the staff to wear,’ the insider said.
The pair, who met in the spring of 2008 and formally announced their engagement at a party at Soros’ summer mansion in Southampton last year, reportedly sent out only several hundred of the 1,000 invitations printed for their big day.
‘The wedding will be attended by friends, family and colleagues from around the world, including George’s five children and the bride’s entire family,’ the source told the Daily News.
‘They will all come to New York and then other events, like the reception and a brunch, will be held at different locations around the city.’
Despite being treated to the best money can buy, the lucky guests won’t have to give the wealthy newlyweds a gift.
This will be Soros’s third marriage and the second for Bolton, who was married briefly before.
Soros has five children from his marriages to Annaliese Witschak, whom he split with in 1983, and Susan Weber Soros, who he divorced in 2005.
Soros rose to fame and fortune two decades ago on a now-historic trade, in which he took on the Bank of England and shrewdly wagered on a devaluation of the pound.
In 2011, the active contributor to politically liberal causes converted his hedge fund into a family office and stopped managing money for outside investors.
Bolton, who once started an Internet-based dietary supplement business and is now running a web-based yoga education business, has a masters degree in business from the University of Miami
