@MangoSong: I didn’t say thats what they need to give, i said thats what i gave!
i have not had wedding and i have not sent invites asking for a set price.
Its a game that is played, and those that care about the custom will find out how much per plate and will give lucky gift.
Its not a Me thing at all, these rules and superstitions were there long before i was born.
And since i can’t use Asian, Chinese, depending on what part also have different rules.
@aspasia475: I am allowed to not find the OP invite not rude, and i have attended many weddings that ask for cash. cash i give is based on a taught traditional formula. Having a Chinese wedding is custom to give money as what it represents has spiritual meaning imo.
i did not say anyone is not allowed to find it rude, but to be told that my culture is all in my head and made up makes me very angry.

@babecake: I don’t think you can say the person is your friend. maybe you can show her the thread so she can see how petty and cheap you are.

@yumiyumi: AWWW SO CUTE! I’m gonna get you a spacesuit complete with oxygen tank for your wedding so you can play with a kitty kat. And since your half vietnamese and not ASKING for money, I’m gonna slip you a red envelope *giggles*
Some people need to learn there’s a difference between giving freely and asking conditionally.

I find it incredibly ironic that people on here are arguing etiquette while fighting and name calling.
