Can the guests at least wear suits to show some respect to Yao? Some of them were dressed like they were going to eat dim sum.

Maybe they were checking into the hotel in regular clothes (since it's hot there?), then were going to change into more formal clothes for the ceremony. I guess we'll find out if any photos of the ceremony are released.

which foreign media were in attendance? Where the Chinese celebs like Jay Chou and Ng Mang-Tat at? How come the guests don't even tuck in their shirt? Why wasn't Steve and Tmac invited?

Well felt sorry about those camping reporters/paparazzi.

No one was able to get a glimpse of Yao Ming throughout yesterday's wedding reception.

No arrival and no departure at the front entrance of the hotel and the big ballroom.

Cos according to what was reported, in the packaged deal with Pudong Shangri-la Hotel, he blocked out the whole of 32/F, and lived in a presidential suite over the week-end and Monday night. That means he never left the hotel since Saturday.

So that is why no one was able to get a glimpse, not to mention a photo, of Yao Ming in yesterday's wedding reception.

Yao Ming slam-dunks singledom

By Zheng Lifei (China Daily)

SHANGHAI: China's NBA star center Yao Ming tied the knot with his long-term girlfriend Ye Li in a low-key wedding ceremony yesterday.

A private wedding banquet for the couple of eight years was held in the city's five-star Shangri-La Hotel.

The evening was shrouded in secrecy until dozens of foreign and domestic media camped outside the glitzy hotel for a glance at the happy couple.

In what was a relatively small affair for a star of gigantic proportions, a limited number of guests of family and friends were invited to dine at eight exclusive tables for the wedding banquet on the third floor of the hotel.

A custom-designed heart-shaped logo, with two "Y"s printed in the middle, was hung from a white curtain in the front of two banquet halls, joined and decorated in a traditional manner.

Yao booked the most expensive meal set priced at 12,399 yuan (US$1,640) per table, according to a hotel source, close to the wedding reception.

The lavish menu included sea cucumber, sea-ear and fresh red garoupa.

Both are incredibly tall. Yao, at 2.26 meters tall towers over his new bride, also a player in the national woman's basketball team, at 1.9 meters tall.

Yao, 27, and his wife, 25, are both from Shanghai.

The Houston Rockets' All-Star center reportedly met his sweetheart in 1999 when he was playing for the Shanghai Sharks, a local basketball team.

Their relationship, however, was only made public at the 2004 Athens Olympics where they were seen walking hand-in-hand at the closing ceremony of the games.

The couple signed their marriage certificate on Friday night in Xuhui District Marriage Registration Office, where officials worked late until 8 pm that day for the couple's convenience.

Well despite the water-tight security, there was still this photo that got leaked out from last night's wedding reception.
