Date: 17th November 2000
CATHERINE ZETA JONES and MICHAEL DOUGLAS are requesting their wedding guests don't give them presents - preferring donations to their baby's new charity.
The new parents, who are to be wed tomorrow (18NOV00) at New York's PLAZA HOTEL, have already set up THE DYLAN DOUGLAS FOUNDATION, and are hoping their wedding day will give the fund a valuable kick start.
Douglas, who admits he's a little nervous, can't wait for the big day. He says, "I'm feeling good, palms are a little sweaty - I'm getting married." The wedding, which is estimated to be costing the couple around $2.5 million (£1.66 million), will begin at 7pm on Saturday.
Guests expected include ANTHONY HOPKINS, JACK NICHOLSON and LARA FLYNN BOYLE and DANNY DEVITO, with a private jet is being hired to fly in Zeta Jones' relatives from Wales. (LE/WNV/RGS)
