Whenever we hear about weddings, it’s always such an extravagant event – bringing all of your family and friends under one roof to celebrate a momentous, joyous day. But this Vietnamese millionaire, Nguyen Viet Cuong, let’s say he’s bringing extravagant weddings to a whole new level.
To celebrate his daughter named Ngoc Nhu, the real estate tycoon spent literally a fortune to fund her wedding. To be exact – he spent almost VND 1 billion dong, which is around RM 187,000.
According to VnExpress, thousands of guests attended the extravagant event including some of Vietnam’s most influential celebrities like Duc Phuc and more. The mastermind behind all this is the same man who staged the opening and closing ceremonies of the 31st SEA Games in Hanoi – Hoang Cong Cuong.
It took Cuong nine months of preparations and he lined up 2,000 individuals to serve the event. The wedding was held in an event space even larger than the My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi, and was decked up in fresh flowers just like the film “Crazy Rich Asians”. The event attracted great public attention for its extravagance.
The wedding planner used one of the largest projection systems available in Vietnam, spanning over 700 square meters. The idea was to share the love of the couple through lighting effects, music, and 3D visuals. Additionally, there was even a colourful fireworks display among the sea of flowers.
The banquet hall was decorated with 25 tons of premium silk wedding flowers and five tons of fresh flowers which turned out to be a beautiful sight! A number of different shows were performed including one by Duc Phuc and many other famous Vietnamese artists. The event was so extravagant it seemed more like an awards show than a wedding.
We hope the newly-married lovebirds last till death do them part.
