We have recently reported that the chairman of Chinese ceramics firm Fujian Wanli Group, Wu Duanbiao, sponsored a lavish feast to celebrate the wedding of his daughter.
The South China Morning Post reported that the lucky couple received almost $150 million in gifts from her father, who also paid for an 8 day banquet.
The gifts include 4 boxes of gold jewelry, $3 million deposited in the couple's bank account, donations to charities in their names, 5 million shares in Fujian Wanli Group valued at $15 million, a Porsche and a Mercedes Benz, and an impressive property portfolio.
Because of the mega dowry provided by the rich father-in-law, the groom's finances vastly improved after his Sunday wedding to his childhood sweetheart. The groom, identified as a government official named Xu, used to earn only $24,000 a year before his marriage. The bride and groom were classmates since they were in kindergarten until high school.
Miss Wu then studied at Xiamen University and in the UK, and later became a board member of the family company.
