Other Vietnamese, correct me if I’m wrong, but I think “Mot Hai Ba, Do” (One, two, three, In” is informal because I only heard it at regular parties, not at wedding.

I called to my dad to ask the more formal way to say instead of “Mot Hai Ba, In” . You can say “Nan ly chuc muong co dau chu re” = raise glass to congratulate the bride and the groom.

And a more formal way to say thank you is “Cam on qui vi” = thank you honor guests

If you don’t speak Vietnamese, I think you should try out different sayings and see which is easiest for you to say.  Guests won’t understand you if you use formal lanuage that they don’t understand.  My dad used Mot Hai Ba, Do at our formal reception because it’s easiest for the Viet-speaking and non Viet-speaking to understand.  Just something to consider.  My non-Viet speaking hubs says “cam on” only because the additional add on endings are difficult for him to remember.  People still really appreciated the effort.  They’re really going to appreciate your effort!

I agree with hotwings about practicing a few and picking the one easiest to say. I’m sorry to say I can’t really help with pronounciations since I can’t even do it totally proper myself due to all the accents and intonations Foot in mouth I usually anglicize words but people accept and understand it. And people really do appreciate the effort in trying more than anything else.
