You could be forgiven for going green with envy as more details of pop diva Coco Lee and Li & Fung boss Bruce Rockowitz's lavish wedding leak out. Well, the whopping sum of money the golden couple splashed out on their two-day celebration was almost as much as the GDP of a small country.

After the ceremony at the ICC on Thursday, the couple threw a celebratory dinner, themed 'crystal ball', at the Ritz-Carlton attended by 180 friends and relatives.

Celebrity wedding planner Preston Bailey helped organise the soiree. The five-course Italian menu was designed by the hotel's executive chef.

Lee wore a mermaid-shaped Vera Wang dress, while American Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Bruno Mars sang his hit Just the Way You Are.

While soul singer Alicia Keys and rapper Ne-Yo also performed at the dinner, the couple's party on Friday at Shaw Studios had New York's 13-piece Marianne Bennett Band, R&B group the Black Eyed Peas and DJ Max Chipchase for entertainment.

The bride, in an evening dress made by Dorian Ho, took the stage to sing three songs, including her latest single I Just Wanna Marry U.

Vintage champagne and Californian wine flowed. Lee's five-tier, crystal-studded cake was made by Sevva's Bonnie Gokson. Four hundred guests showed up at the after-party and danced until the early hours.
