From two crystal-embellished gowns to a £40,000 ($66,715) hotel dinner, this over-the-top bride and groom spared no expense in making sure their wedding was one to remember.

Rudy and Gloria, two architects from Singapore who have worked around the world, showcase what went into executing their big day in the upcoming episode of Channel 5's Crazy Rich Asian Wedding this Sunday.

The pair host their wedding at five-star hotel The Fullerton, one of the most exclusive addresses in Singapore, inviting 400 guests to share in the celebrations.  

Bride-to-be Gloria decides to wear two gowns on her big day: one for the ceremony an another for the evening, both embellished with Swarovski crystals.

From her own admission Gloria has a thing for bling, which is evident in the two gowns she selects for the day - after trying on more than 50. 

The white gown she wears during the ceremony is studded with 2,000 Swarovski crystals. 

But the show-stopper is a magenta sequin dress she reserves for the later part of the evening, which is custom designed to match her dazzling ruby engagement ring.

Speaking to MailOnline, jewellery expert Gary Ingram of TheDiamondStore.co.uk, estimates the ring would be worth £100,000.

Rudy patiently accompanies his fiancee as she tries on more than 50 gowns before finding the two of her dreams.

'It's blinding, it's very nice,' comments her husband-to-be as Gloria tries on the sequin dress, jokingly protecting his eyes from the sparkly gown. 

They plan to entertain 400 guests from 13 countries at the hotel, where tables go at £1,000 each, under a ceiling studded with 400,000 crystals.

The venture is set to cost them £40,000 for the dinner alone, and excluding alcohol.

'We want the food to be good and delicious for our family because it's not cheap,' Gloria explains. 'The table is about £1,100 each and that excludes alcohol. We have about 40 tables.'

The menu for the night consists of scallops in a potato nest as a started, a main dish of noodles that we tossed in the air by the guests for good luck. 

It will also include a luxurious sea-bass dish and dumplings for each table.   

The couple also will provide with several expensive champagne from iconic label Veuve Cliquot.

Nothing is left to chance, with the pair both working on their fitness, Rudy with a personal trainer and strict diet, and Gloria with 45 minutes appointments of 'The Vanquish,' a painless but pricey treatment that removes fat. 

In London, the Vanquish can amount to £600 for 45 minutes, or £3,000 for six sessions.  

While the couple are busying over the last details of their dinner receptions, outfit and joined party with friends on a yacht, their wedding planner Eileen is giving herself headaches trying to work out the logistics of their big day.
