The supermodel-conductor couple held their wedding at a five-star hotel in Ho Chi Minh City on Oct. 22. Fresh flowers, mostly peonies and white tulips, symbolizing sincere love, were used to decorate the venue, leaving guests with a great impression.

Alternating between three wedding dresses created by renowned fashion designers Cong Tri and Tang Thanh Cong, the bride was praised for her style. Meanwhile, the groom was complimented for his piano and singing performance gifted to the bride during the ceremony’s opening.

The beauty queen-footballer couple held two weddings in November: one at a football pitch in Hau’s hometown, the northern province of Thai Binh, and one at a five-star hotel in Hanoi.

Both events’ venues were decorated with fresh flowers including hydrangeas, white phalaenopsis, white roses, and baby’s breath, all symbolizing happiness.

The bride’s collection of wedding dresses included four gowns, including one made by Vera Wang that reportedly cost US$3,300.

Their Cam Ranh beach wedding went for simple and elegant style, while their Ho Chi Minh City event had a modern and luxurious style, and their Dong Thap nuptials made use of traditional items in the Mekong Delta like coconut leaves, bamboo, and meticulously woven materials.

The beauty queen-businessman couple held their wedding on Sep. 17 in Ho Chi Minh City. The theme of their ceremony was "fairytale forest," and as many as four tons of white flowers were used in decoration, with orchids and baby's breath, among other flowers, placed along the aisle.

Many fellow beauty queens showed up at the event, including Miss Grand International 2021 Nguyen Thuc Thuy Tien, Miss World Vietnam 2019 Luong Thuy Linh, and Miss Grand Vietnam 2022 Doan Thien An.

Dancers Vu Ngoc Anh, 33, and Cuong Seven, 34

The dancer couple had their wedding held in Hanoi on July 28.

The ceremony’s venue was decorated in a disco style, with glittering disco balls used as decorative items.

Anh wore a three-in-one wedding dress made by designer Phuong Linh. The highlight of her outfit was an intricately beaded choker chain around her neck and shoulders, styled to drape freely. As she removed the detachable skirt, her dress transformed into a long-tailed gown reminiscent of Tinker Bell. When Anh removed the dress’ tail again, her gown turned into a short and youthful outfit.
