    i guess normally ppl dont give red packet for ROM? That's why we didnt really expect much, but secretly hope that we receive some! since ROM and our AD is like 1-2yrs apart

    hmm but I think relatives will probably give ang bao if they know wedding dinner is still far far away ba.. think maybe most dont give cos they reserve it for the wedding banquet which most assume is just round the corner after the ROM.

    I think is the matter of more or less.. I did have colleague that receive ang bao during ROM but hers is Soleminzation at the Registry then follow by buffet lunch@a tung lok restaurant.. Still manage to cover some..

    What do u gals think if your friend invite you to a ROM + Wedding banquet Lunch event? Will u give normal banquet rate or lesser? I am doing it this way next year 2012.

    Mine is a ROM + High tea buffet. If it's me, I will give around the banquet rate. If it's a close or good friend I will give him/her higher. I guess it all depends on how close you are with the person. Alternatively, if I know what he/she wants as a wedding gift, I will get a gift instead (must be close friends to honestly tell u in the face to buy her this/that. Haha. Cos some gift can cost more than the banquet.But I wont mind since it's a close friend)

    Ya pinnpinn.. Now my htb and me thinking of either buffet lunch or sitdown package cos we only have 60-80 pax as it is a small cosy wedding lunch + ROM. Went to a few places le & already tired.. Is also tiring to have it twice la.. hehe.. btw thanks for your reply

    Depends on what you and your partner agrees on but same as the others, we also gave the ang bao to our parents.

    I think most parents are reasonable and won't expect you to give them all the ang baos because the banquet will be really expensive. But you can give them some of it as a form of gratitude for taking care of you all these years
