Wedding ang baos are a form of blessing that we give unto newlyweds, however as practical Singaporeans, it is also to help to cover the cost of the wedding banquet, making it an important part of wedding etiquette to give an appropriate amount. Deciding the “appropriate” amount to give can be tricky affair and can depend on several factors, such as where and when the wedding is held and also cultural traditions.

However, just knowing how much to give isn’t enough. Here are some rules and customs for different cultures that you need to take note of when deciding how much to put into your ang bao!

Chinese Wedding Traditions

  • Monetary gifts are generally given for Chinese weddings in red packets or Ang Baos.
  • Physical gifts are uncommon, though not prohibited.
  • Avoid giving odd numbered amounts, and amounts beginning and ending with a ‘4’ since its Chinese translation sounds like ‘death’. Giving amounts ending with ‘8’ is the best, as it is an auspicious number in Chinese culture!

Indian Wedding Traditions

  • Monetary envelopes are also the most ideal gift at Indian weddings. However, for Indian weddings, it would be best to give amounts ending with ‘1’.

Malay Wedding Traditions

  • Monetary gifts are also presented during Malay weddings.
  • Monetary gifts do not have to be put in a green packet. Any envelope will do.
  • The typical amount given at a Malay traditional wedding can start from $10, but the amount varies based on the venue and set-up of the wedding, as well as how close you are to the couple getting married.

Unfortunately, being a wedding guest in Singapore is all about numbers! Don’t be that wedding guest who “throws face” and packs way too little in their ang bao (or spoils market by packing too much). But with more Singaporeans opting to tie the knot at more unconventional wedding venues, remember to do your research to know the appropriate amount to pack in your ang bao!
