When we heard about the marriage of Angela Yeung, the actress, singer and model dubbed the “Chinese Kim Kardashian” to actor Huang Xiaoming (the Chinese Kanye West, one assumes), it got us thinking about weddings and how in all their uniform exchanging of vows and rings, each has its own perfect uniqueness.
That, of course, came after we’d scraped our jaws off the floor on hearing that the pair’s October 2015 nuptials cost an eye-watering $31 million. We can only assume that the couple read about Kimye’s $12 million union in Italy and thought: “Challenge accepted!”. If, like us, you’re struggling to comprehend what $31 million actually means, it’s the equivalent spend of over 1,192 average-costing American weddings. Yowsers!
Beautiful as the bride was in the couture gown she wore for the wedding run through in Paris (yes, the Elie Sab dress was just for the rehearsal), not to mention the 115 feet of ivory satin organza of the custom, five-months-in-the-making Christian Dior gown she wore for the actual event, we’ve gone every bit as gaga for some of the, shall we say, less cash-tastic weddings that have come to our attention over recent times.
