I would give $100 as I normally would from the two of us, however, if my kids were also invited, I would give them $200.  Now, I will not give $100 per head, otherwise, that would be a bit much because there are 5 of us total and $500 is a bit much and we are not rich.  I have college tuition to pay!

I do know this as part of culture of some region of asian wedding, like there’s unspoken rule about how much you must bring. Sometimes even related with where they held the party, 3star hotel is xx amount, 5 star hotel xxx amount etc.

But it was unspoken rules, everyone knows it already so never ever stated in the invitation, and never asked to pay upfront. This is very tacky.

sboom :  I live in Quebec and it’s pretty common here. Being from Europe, I find it very shocking but I guess it all depends on your culture and upbringing. That being said I must admit that I declined a few invitations because of that (I met those people twice and the amount they asked for was ridiculous).
