    I would say depending of the price per table.

    You may want to download the appropriate year of wedding banquet price list of that 5* hotel and divided by 10 to find the min. amount.

    For example, if per table is $1000 for 10 pax, then when you attend normal friend's wedding, you can give at least $100. But if close friends, you can give more than $100.

    The amount may varies with the year price, pax, % on how close ... etc

    Hope this helps you to decide the amount to give.

    I think the reasonable amount would be $120-$140 for a 5-star hotel. But all this depends on how close you are with the married couple. This is my personal thought. Hope this helps. Thanks.

    Yes, I agree with what Chi Chi said. It is the thoughts that count. If you want to hold an expensive wedding in a 5-star hotel, you cannot expect or blame guests who only gave you less than your desired amount in mind. You may learn to forgo this thinking since you may have already considered using a 5-star hotel for your wedding or the wedding you are going to attend. In the 1st place, if all couples are only thinking of earning back the angbao money or to break even, then they should engage a 3 to 4-star hotel. That will really save the troubles and worries. Hope this helps. Thanks.

    I think more than $100 is enough for that.

    does the amount you give vary depending on what type of venue or what quality of hotel the wedding is being held in? :/
