Fann Wong and Christopher Lee's "wedding of the year"

SINGAPORE : It has been heralded as “The Wedding of the Year” and Tuesday night marks the big night for local celebrity couple, Fann Wong and Christopher Lee. The couple, who said their "I do's" in a simple ceremony at the presidential suite of the Shangri-La Hotel on May 16 this year, will hold their wedding banquet at the same hotel on Tuesday. And if you have not been invited like the rest of the world, fret not, for MediaCorp will broadcast the dinner banquet live from 8pm on Channel 8.

The lovebirds have spared no expense - they had their bridal shoot in Maldives and the much-anticipated wedding is estimated to cost S$5 million. While this amount may prove to be too extravagant for most mere mortals, being famous does have its perks.

On top of her Vera Wang bridal gown, Wong has a Bollywood-inspired bejewelled gown specially designed for her by Bally, worth S$300,000. Her wedding bling which consists of three collections of self-designed bridal jewellery sponsored by Celestial® by Goldheart, are worth about S$2.5 million. The collections include a headpiece, diamond drop earrings, bangles and a bracelet, but the highlight has to be the sparkling 60-carat diamond necklace where each diamond is supposed to represent the different milestones of the couple's courtship

The groom is not left out either as Lee has his own collection consisting of a diamond ear stud and ring and will be suited up by Italian label Ermenegildo Zegna.

Lee had previously mentioned that he wanted to give Wong “the best wedding ever” and took care of details like the wedding invitations and the banquet himself. With around 90 tables for guests, the banquet is expected to cost around S$110,000. And that's not all. The couple will hold another wedding dinner for Lee's friends and family in his hometown of Malacca on October 11.

In this photo, the groom was made by the bridesmaids to finish five packets of curry rice in five minutes. Looks like he had a lot of trouble keeping the curry rice down :-)
