Wedding guest in Singapore

Post by Siirtonainen » Thu, 24 Sep 2009 10:29 pm

I was invited to a business partners wedding in Singapore, and I don´t know what kind of dress is adequate for a guest? It is a dinnerparty, 40 tables. Long dress or a shorter one, medium length? Should I buy a present or give money? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Give money, it's the norm for chinese & malay weddings (never been to an indian one). quests hardly give presents, the ones who do usually know the couple on a more personal level.

you should defitinely wear a knee length dress. a full lenght dress would be too formal, don't you think?

How is the money given? In an envelope in the wedding? How much is a normal amount?

Ok, so knee length dress. A full length dress would be the only possibility in many places, like a fancy Italian wedding banquet, so I didn´t know it would be too formal in Singapore. Thank you for the reply!

amount of money given would typically be 50-100? it usually depends on the venue, like if its at a fancy hotel, you should probably give maybe 80? if its a chinese person's wedding, 8 is a lucky number.
