    Ang Pows

    For chinese, they are aware that when they attend weddings, ang pows are preferred. However if my guests have non chinese, especially the Caucasians, how do pass the message to them that we prefer angpows than presents?

    Haha yeah I do come across an interesting invite before that has a small section at the bottom of the card that says something like "In Chinese tradition, guests give ang bao as a form of monetary blessing in a red packet as a wedding gift"
