Over 400 couples are getting married on Friday -- May 20 is pronounced as "I love you" in Putonghua -- the highest on this day in four years.
According to the latest figure from the Immigration Department, 402 couples intended to register for marriage on Friday, making it the most popular May 20 in four years.

Among the applications, 136 couples planned to register at the Marriage Registry, 263 said they would arrange a marriage celebrant, and three applied for marriages in a licensed place of worship.
