Taiwanese actor Mark Chao and Chinese fiancée actress Gao Yuanyuan registered their marriage this September and will hold their wedding banquet tomorrow at Le Meridien Taipei.
Last night, the couple’s friends including actress Alyssa Chia and beau Shiou Chieh Kai (Xiu Jie Kai) held a bachelor party for them before they walk down the aisle.
Although it was previously reported that Mark’s father, Allen Chao, was bothered that his son was planning his big day independently, he is said to be very satisfied with the arrangements thus far. Unlike earlier speculations that he does not foresee their marriage to be a smooth one, Allen is in fact pleased with his daughter-in-law-to-be.
The older Chao, who did not attend the party, visited his 98-year-old father yesterday with his oldest son John Chao and wife, who specially flew back from the States to attend Mark’s big day.
In addition, the guest list for the couple’s shindig was revealed and Taiwanese host Jacky Wu will reportedly be the emcee for the star-studded event. Other attendees include Allen’s good friends Zhang Xiao Yan and Wang Mon Ling, not forgetting the couple’s buddies Chen Kai Ge and wife, Johnnie To, Vicki Zhao, Angelababy, Huang Bo, Shi Nansun, Carina Lau, Doze Niu, Gwei Lun Mei, Leon Dai and others.
