Whether we like it or not, giving out ang pows for weddings is a huge part of our culture. To be sure how much to be giving out, check out our Wedding Ang Pow Guide Singapore 2018.
Typically how one would calculate wedding ang bao amount is to take the total cost per table and then divide by the number of the pax per table.
There are a few factors that can affect how much you give out in an ang pow:
1. Location of the wedding
2. How close you are to the bride or groom
3. Whether the wedding is on a weekday or weekend
4. If the wedding is a sit down banquet dinner or casual buffet style
5. If you are attending both the morning and evening ceremony or just one.
Do note that this is just a guide and the ranges provided are suggested. There are no hard or fast rules when it comes to wedding ang pows.
But in case you need a little help, here’s the Wedding Ang Pow Guide Singapore 2018 guide for your reference:

At the end of the day, attending a wedding should be about celebrating the couple and not calculating to the last cent on how much to give the newlyweds.
Of course, you would like to wish the couple well with monetary blessings, but no couple should rely on ang pow money to fund their wedding.
