An invitation card for what appears to be Taiwanese model-actress Lin Chi-ling’s wedding celebration in Taiwan was recently shared with the media.
“Because you’re very important to us, we’re inviting you to accept a hug of love from us,” the invitation card reads.
In June this year, Chi-ling announced that she had tied the knot with Japanese actor Akira, who is part of the J-pop group EXILE. The couple left for their honeymoon soon after, but have yet to hold a proper wedding banquet or celebration.
According to the leaked invitation, couple’s nuptials will be held on November 17 in Tainan. There will be a ceremony will be conducted in the afternoon, before guests are treated to dinner.
Reports have speculated that the location was chosen because it is Chi-ling’s father's hometown. Only a select number of friends and family are invited to the party, as Chi-ling wanted to keep things private.
When contacted to verify the reports, Chi-ling confirmed through her manager that she and Akira will be hosting a small party next Sunday.
“We're very grateful for the love and concern from the media! It’s just a small gathering with good friends and family. We will definitely send out some photos to share our joy. We’re really sorry that we did not invite a lot of people. We chose to hold it in Tainan due to the fact that as a daughter, (Chi-ling) wishes to experience the same memories of her parents (who tied the knot in Tainan),” the statement read.
