    Couples parents usually will give $12-$28 to your sisters and brothers.

    For the couples:
    Ang Pows for brothers: $28-$88
    (Usually will give more to the brothers since they actually lent their cars out to drive the sisters around, in a way, it's to cover their "fuel" cost.)

    Ang Pows for sisters: $28-$68
    (If your sisters have to cab to your place early in the morning, will give more, it's to cover their transportation cost. Unless they are staying over at your place then you need not give so much. On the side note, if the materials for gate-crashing are bought by your sisters then you also need to either consider this cost inside the gate-crashing ang pows or sisters' ang pow.)

    However if your gate-crashing ang pow has already cover your sisters' transportation cost as well as gate-crashing cost then your can just give $28 as sisters' ang pow. Otherwise you can give them a budget to buy materials etc for gate-crashing then your gate-crashing ang pow can lessen also.

    Ultimately it's up to you. Giving them ang pow is a gesture of showing appreciation for their help on your big day. If you are not having a tight budget then maybe can consider their fuel cost, transportation cost etc...

    Hi CharisYS, as stated in my ang pow list above, I'm planning to give the Solemnizer $88.

    Here's an extract from ROM website:

    What is the fee for the solemnizer? Can I give him a token of appreciation?
    Licensed Solemnizers are volunteers. They take personal time and effort to officiate at your wedding. As a gesture of goodwill and basic courtesy, you may choose to give him a token of appreciation and reimburse him for transport (the guideline for transport is between $50 and $100).

    Hence it's ultimately up to you, just make sure the ang pow can cover at least his transportation cost.
