Other images include the bride’s dowry – the traditional gifts or cash given at Chinese weddings. Hers included large wads of cash, alongside multiple gold bracelets in their cases. Southern Metropolis Daily reported the loot as being worth several million Yuan.

Chinese equivalent of Facebook, Weibo, has gone into overdrive, with users conveying their thoughts on the proud display of wealth.

“Is this a wedding or Qin Shi Huang’s funeral?” Qin Shi Huang being an emperor of China from 221 BC.

Another Weibo user remarked: “This wedding was put on as an outward show (of wealth).”

Whether the wedding day bling was excessive or not, It’s a thought whether the bride developed back problems after lugging around those hunks of gold all day.
