Washington - President Barack Obama says he did not make the guest list for Chelsea Clinton's wedding.

In an interview on ABC's televisions talk show The View, Obama said he was not invited because former president Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wanted the event to be about their daughter and her future husband.

Obama says that is probably for the best, joking that it will be tough enough to have one president at the wedding.

Clinton will wed investment banker Marc Mezvinsky on Saturday in Rhinebeck, New York, about 145km north of New York City.
