The countdown begins for one of the most highly-anticipated events in Chinese showbiz - the wedding of model Angelababy and actor Huang Xiaoming on Thursday (Oct 8).
According to Lianhe Wanbao, the high-profile couple will hold their nuptials at the Shanghai Exhibition Center, a place the bride regards as her dream venue for holding a wedding fit for a princess.
Among the guests are the richest and most famous in Chinese showbiz, including Jack Ma, billionaire and founder of e-commerce giant Alibaba. He may also double as a wedding witness, NetEase reported.
The star-studded wedding entourage comprises actresses Ni Ni and Li Bingbing, as well as Wang Sicong, son of China's richest man Wang Jianlin, and Taiwanese singer Edison Lin.
An estimated 600 guests will attend the banquet, many of whom are famous figures from around the region, reports AsiaOne.
Lianhe Wanbao also reported that the bride is expected to wear a $139 million tiara her doting groom had commissioned from French jeweller CHAUMET.
The couple registered their marriage in his native Qingdao in May this year.
