Five years later, Qiaoqiao gets a wedding invitation from Lixing.

The couple argue, reconcile, and argue again, and when they finally reach the point of acceptance, a new obstacle gets in their way.
Crying Without Tears
Yesterday, Eddie Peng, Jiang Jinfu, and Oh Ki Hwan attended a promotional event for A Wedding Invitation in Beijing. On recalling his deepest memories of shooting the film, Eddie immediately said, “Definitely the part where I had to cry without tears!”
Eddie revealed that although he had three crying scenes in the film, all three had to be done differently due to the context of the story. “Director Oh only gave me three attempts at each scene. It is a huge acting challenge.”
Eddie further said, “Usually when we feel bad, we will either yell it out or cry out our emotions, but there is one scene in the film in which I had to multitask – cook and feel bad and hide my emotions from the other person. It is very complicated.”
