The last time i attended my friend's wedding at Pan Pacific, I gave $100. Think this should be the market rate for most hotels. You can also visit the hotel website to check the cost of banquet and including GST and other costs such as cockage, you can roughly work out the amount to give, to cover costs.
For myself, I normally give $100 to $200, depending on the location and reputation of hotels. The classier the hotel, the more i give.

I think I would still give the person an Ang bao containing the market rate as this person has reserved the seats for you..
Think the wedding banquets nowadays ain't cheap.. Most hotels in town cost about $120 or above..

Agree with Drusilla
Hotel banquet are easily above 1.2k excluding gst, svc chrg and not inclusive of other costs like corkage and additional wines, beers, ballroom decor.
I'll still give mkt rate even if not going
Ang bao is not just to cover banquet cost, but also to bless the newly wed on their new journey ahead. They will have need money to buy house and start a family.

Think nowadays, it may just be good to actually get a hint from the bride n groom on the likely per table price of the venue. That way, we know the right minimum amount we can contribute to help them even out the wedding dinner cost. Thats what I call the "right rate". Definition of market is different for every one.

A hint is good. But a more subtle approach would be to ring up the establishment to check.

Depends on whether you have agreed to attend or not.
03-06-2011 11:49 PM #13
