Fann Wong & Christopher Lee Nuptials Next Year

FANN Wong admits she has been 'lazy' in planning her marriage next year to her long-time boyfriend, actor Christopher Lee. But their wedding planner - hairstylist pal David Gan - couldn't wait and kept bugging them to draw up their guest list, so that he could start looking at venues for their big day.

On Monday evening, the celebrity couple got down to work. The 37-year-old actress told The New Paper that they started with colleagues, then went on to friends and family. But they got tired of trying to decide whom to invite and gave up after jotting down three pages of names. She said: 'We looked at each other and it was like, 'Since they went to Bhutan, let's go to the Himalayas.'

She was referring to Hong Kong celebrity couple Tony Leung and Carina Lau, who got hitched in Bhutan in a private ceremony for 100 guests on Monday. Was Fann joking? Or is she seriously thinking of having her wedding overseas?

'That's how we felt that night. But if the feeling persists and you don't hear anything from us by next year, it could happen,' she said.

So far, the star of the new drama serial The Defining Moment, which begins its run on 4Aug, does not have a dream wedding in mind. She just wants to make it a 'big party' that will leave behind 'pleasant memories'.


But she is certain that she wants a unique wedding gown that is different from all those she has worn in reel life. Earlier this year, she donned a gown for the movie Ah Long Pte Ltd.

Is Fann bold enough to wear a bikini for her wedding? Giggling, she replied: 'I'm worried there'll be too much nosebleed! And I'm scared of the cold.'

How about a beach wedding then? 'But I'm scared of heat too,' she exclaimed.

How picky! No wonder she's taking such a long time to plan her big day. They have not even decided on a wedding date yet, although she didn't seem to mind this suggestion: 9Sep. It would allow them to print 09/09/09 on their wedding cards and 9 is an auspicious number that signifies eternity when said in Mandarin.

'I won't put too much emphasis on dates, but my parents probably will.

'It's better if we pick a date that is difficult to remember, then I'll remember it but he won't,' she added with a mischievous smile.

Noticing her bare hands, this reporter asked Fann why she doesn't flaunt the $50,000 two-carat solitaire ring that Christopher had proposed to her with in February this year. 'I always forget it when I'm working,' she said with a hint of embarrassment. The ring is now kept in 'a very precious place' and she would wear it more often after her wedding.

On how prepared she is to become Mrs Lee, Fann declared unabashedly that she would be a '100 per cent world-best wife'. She's an expert at tidying the house and throwing away useless things, she proudly said.

But whether she will welcome Christopher home at the door depends on her mood. 'If I'm happy, I'll get the door for him. If not, I'll be lying in bed.'
