Can’t find the venue on the list? Then give the hotel/restaurant a call and ask them how much a banquet table would cost. Bear in mind that lunch and dinner prices are often different, and the cost of banquets on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays will be higher than those on Mondays to Thursdays.

How much should I give at Malay weddings?

While an appropriate contribution will vary according to the cost of the venue and how “atas” your friends are, traditional Malay weddings tend to be a bit more relaxed. The meal is usually served in the form of a buffet with free seating, so you do not need to worry about having to cover the cost of your “seat”. Although, this might be changing for some modern families as well.

There’s generally no minimum contribution because Malays tend to abide by the concept of “ikhlas” (out of goodwill), but help the couple cover costs and don’t give them $2 because it’s not even enough to cover the cost of your meal. Of course, the sky is the limit if you are close to the couple.

How much should I give at Indian weddings?

The answer is, it depends on the venue and where the reception is being held. The standard format is for the actual wedding to take place at a temple, and a reception to be held later on, typically at a hotel, function hall or restaurant.

You should generally budget for a contribution of at least $50 to $80 for receptions at temples and function halls.

If they’re held at high-end hotels, you’ll have to give similar amounts to the rates quoted for wedding banquets above.

You should also add a $1 coin to your contribution, as offering a sum that ends in 1 is seen as auspicious.

How much should I give at church weddings?

Regardless of race, if the wedding is held at a church, there may or may not a follow-up lunch or dinner banquet at a hotel or restaurant. If there is no banquet, there will usually be some kind of reception on the church premises.

If the entire wedding takes place at the church, you can get away with contributing about $40 to $50.

If there is also a banquet, refer to the ang pow rates in the table above.
