The couple actually originally married in private five months ago, but decided to hold a spectacular second wedding inviting 2,000 guests and giving them all a bag full of gifts, including a mobile phone, as well as having thousands of roses and a 10-foot wedding cake, which is rumored to have taken a month to create.

Angelababy turned to Dior to create a custom dress of her dreams, made from 115 feet of organza and 165 feet of tulle, a 10-foot train and nearly 100 hand-cut rose bouquets made of Chantilly lace, and it took the couture staff at Christian Dior five months to make.

“Prior to the wedding, the perfect couple, Ms. Angelababy and Mr. Huang Xiaoming visited the headquarters of Chaumet at Place Vendome in Paris to select the tiaras and jewels used in the wedding. Madame Beatrice de Plinval, curator of the Chaumet museum, thoroughly explained the brand history and jewels and selected the antique tiara and necklace for Angelababy to wear on her wedding,” Chaumet wrote on Instagram.
