Million dollar wedding stirs up central province

 Streets in the town of Son Tay were jammed as people thronged down the two sides of National Road 8A and watched a group of expensive cars, including an Audi A5 Sportback, a Mercedes GLK, a Mercedes C250 CGI, a Porsche Cayenne, and a BMW carrying the bride, groom and guests to the reception.

According to sources, the groom is 25-year old H., the son of a magnate in Huong Son and the bride is 20-year old L., who is from a rich family in Hanoi.

They are both studying in Singapore at the moment.

Singers famous in both Vietnam and overseas, like Dam Vinh Hung, Phi Nhung, Manh Quynh and Quang Le were invited to sing at the wedding.

According to the groom’s relatives, more than US$60,000 was spent on hiring the singers and a band from Hanoi, VND2 billion (US$96,00) on wines, and 60 gold taels were presented to the newlywed.

The total expenditure of the wedding could be no less than VND25 billion (US$1.2 million).
