How to decide the amount to give:

Most wedding venues indicate their rates and packages online.

Do a quick check of the venue’s table rates online, and upon referring to the long list above, here are a few more factors that will help you decide on an amount:

  • how close are you to the bride and groom?
  • make a call on whether the “going rate” is within your financial means
  • if yes, make it an even number, or end it with an ‘8’
  • if no, round down or cut the amount to something you are comfortable with

What to avoid:

  • Odd numbers are usually frowned upon in Chinese culture

Always round your numbers to even, auspicious numbers. Even numbers are thought to be more ’rounded’ and wholesome, conveying your wishes for a stable and more complete life for your loved ones.

  • any amount with the number 8 in it is also considered auspicious. As much as possible, try to make your number an even one.
  • avoid anything that has a 4 in it as it is considered inauspicious as 4 sounds like “death” in Chinese.
  • the notorious number 13 is still rarely acceptable, so try to avoid it

Here are some common rates for Ang Bao in Singapore:

68, 80, 100, 120, 128, 138 (not common), 150 (try to avoid odd numbers), 160, 168, 188, 200

Common wedding Ang Bao questions people are too afraid to ask:

For guests –

1. “How much should I give when attending a wedding at a restaurant or an alternative venue?”

Many couples are increasingly turning to restaurants and alternative venues like clubhouses for their weddings. These can cost anywhere from $90++ to $200++ per guest for a four-course sit-down meal in fine dining venues, or a little less for buffet spreads. Luncheons usually cost less than dinners as well, and many venues put higher minimum spend amounts for evening celebrations and weekend weddings.

2. “How much wedding Ang bao should I prepare for a church wedding?”

This varies from church to church, but churches often do not charge for use of their venue. The main cost would thus be for the lunch or high tea that couples arrange for their guests after the wedding ceremony. Buffet spreads held within the church premises can range from $15 to $80 per guest.

3. “My friends have invited me to an ROM ceremony/a church wedding and a dinner banquet. Must I give wedding ang bao for both events?”

Many couples have a dinner ceremony on the same day as exchanging their vows in a church, so guests may prefer to gift the ang bao at the dinner instead. For such events, most people gift just a single wedding ang bao during the dinner ceremony. “I’d only give ang bao during dinner,” says Janis, and Tan Siew Kiang, 24, Webmaster, agrees. If the events are spread over a period of time, you could consider giving a gift for the ROM ceremony and then an ang bao for the wedding dinner later on, as Mae suggests: “For an ROM ceremony or a church wedding, I would get a gift, such as a floral bouquet, and give an ang bao for the dinner banquet.”

4. “What ang bao should we give during the tea ceremony?”

If you have younger siblings or relatives serving you tea during your tea ceremony, it’s customary to give them an ang bao each. Remember to use auspicious numbers.

For the wedding couple –

5. “We have chosen a prime 5 star venue for our wedding. I have some guests on the list who I know are not that financially well-to-do, should I still invite them (for fear of them feeling pressured to give a big ang bao)?

It is a nice gesture for guests to give an ang bao, so if a couple decides to host their ceremony at a high-end venue knowing the friends they invite are not financially well to do, they should expect to receive a lower and not be mad. On the other hand, it could also be nice to find a chance to speak to these guests and let them know that you are not holding any high expectations.
