Hi all,

Perhaps someone could help.

My GFs bro is getting married in VN. I wanted to give an ang but does anyone know what is a 'standard' amount there? I'll probably up it by about 20% since he is my future BIL.

What a Face

I just attended a vietnamese friend wedding during Christmas celebrated in the countryside.

Most of his vietnamese friends paying 200,000vnd each. (countryside wedding)

I was told, if they celebrate in Saigon any of the hotel restaurant. Then, the ang pow should be 300,000vnd.

Since you are the relative, IMO you should give slightly more.

Just to sidetrack on this discussion a little.

Another friend who just got married to a viet girl said he had to give 200,000vnd to all guest because he was a foreigner. Shocked

Is there really such a custom?

Btw, I gave 500,000.

Thanks to all bros for the advice.

I actually heard of this before. It's not so much a tradition, more like to give 'face' to your wife.

Since this thread is for Angpao, any idea what is the normal amount for TET angpao given to kids in VN?

Maybe it's a bit late to give now, but I've been thinking about this as I've a girl in An Giang who has a 3 y/o daughter. Been wanting to give her some kind of li xi but don't want to appear too generous.
