NATIONAL shuttler Datuk Lee Chong Wei will be among the three “badminton kings” to attend his Chinese rival Lin Dan's wedding in September, reported Oriental Daily.

Lee had received an unofficial invitation during the recent 2012 London Olympics to attend the two-time Olympic gold medallist's wedding.

Lin Dan confirmed with China Daily that he invited three badminton players to his wedding in September Lee, Indonesia's Taufik Hidayat and Denmark's Peter Gade-Christensen.

While the date of Lin Dan's wedding has yet to be set, the Chinese media has dubbed the event as the meeting of the “four great kings of badminton” outside the badminton court.

Lin Dan, 29, said he was now waiting for the trio's response to the invitation and added that he would avoid holding his wedding on the third week of September as the Yonex Open Japan 2012 badminton tournament would be held then.

On his wedding preparations, Lin Dan said the most memorable part was the photo sessions.

“I finally realised why it is every girl's dream to wear a wedding gown because it really feels different,” he said, adding that he wanted to bring his future wife Xie Xingfang to an overseas photo shoot.

Lin also said he had turned down invitations to many official or business functions to help Xie with the wedding preparations.
