Some people have questioned how she got these ladies to be her bridesmaids while others wonder if she paid the ladies so she could have the huge bridal team.
However, according to some sources, the bridesmaids are people Sandra has known through her companies including a modelling agency, Blackdove, which has been in operation since 2004.
It was also discovered that Sandra, who is also an event planner, wanted a record-breaking wedding.
Two days prior to her wedding, she posted a picture of an application on the Guinness Record website for most bridesmaids record.
“@landmark_centre is about to be part of history in 2 days..200 bridesmaids at #thesbond wedding, It's Just an attempt, wish me luck guys..ðŸ™,” she wrote.
