Chinese netizens have been sharing photos of a luxury wedding in southern Guangdong Province last Friday, showing the bride decked in dozens of heavy gold bracelets.

The Southern Metropolis Daily reported that the groom is an expat who works in Zhongshan and the bride’s father used to manage Shaxi Town tap water company.

The bride wore eight huge gold bracelets around her waist, and three giant necklaces comprised of almost 70 gold bracelets, estimated to be worth over 2 million yuan (about $320,000) by the paper. The groom had about seven gold necklaces of his own.

Internet users posted other photos of expensive cars parked outside the venue, like Ferraris and Maseratis. Some thought the event was vulgar, because it was so ostentatious, but others pointed out that local custom is to have everything on show.

According to the Daily, such ostentatious weddings are not uncommon in Zhongshan, because people like to display all their wealth, and there are many rich Chinese in this area.
