Wedding Ang Bao (2023): Ang Bao Rates By Wedding Venues In Singapore

profileHui Juan Neo

Yup, prices are increasing everywhere and as much as you want to save, there’s still one thing you can’t really siam (escape).

Weddings.

While we are happy seeing our friends and relatives move on to a new beginning, attending a wedding means that you have to gift a wedding ang bao (red packet).

Now, as much as I would love to gift as much as I can, some of us have a house and our own wedding to plan…

Moreover, I firmly believe that weddings are personal affairs and guests should not be expected and pressured to match the cost at all.

If any, the matching should be done purely out of blessings for the couple and your intention to help the couple recover some costs.

So, if you’re one of those who really want to help your hosts and will attend a wedding this year, this is the article you should bookmark because it details the ang bao rates across hotels, Chinese restaurants, and alternative wedding venues in Singapore.

This list is extensive, and it’s created with the assumption that you intend to match the price per pax, including the infamous 8% Goods and Services Tax (GST).

Note: This is an article focused on banquet and not solemnisation packages!


TL;DR: Wedding Ang Bao Rates 2023

Saturdays are bound to be the most popular day of the week, hence the most expensive too.

If you’d like a more cost-effective venue, you might want to consider a Kopitiam wedding.

Disclaimer: The prices listed in this guide are accurate as of 20 Jan 2023. Note that the prices are obtained from the hotels, and venues, and crowd-sourced from the community after verification. They include Goods and Services Tax and are calculated based on the maximum capacity of the venue, on the pretext that everyone attended. The prices are subject to change by the venue without prior notice and may vary depending on the date booked, level of customisation, menus that are chosen etc. If you have the latest information, we’re only an email away!


Wedding Ang Bao Rate Guide: How Much Wedding Ang Bao Money Should I Bless the Couple With?

For this wedding ang bao guide, I’ll be looking at banquet settings – the type where you sit down and are served a 7 to 10-course (or maybe even more) meal.

Do note that these are the minimum rates and depending on the level of customisation and menu chosen, you might have to top-up. So, you can always check out the menu and settings beforehand so that you can match the rates as close as possible.

The cost per table includes service charge (10%) and GST (8% in 2023) and is divided by 10 (since a standard banquet table seats 10 guests).

Also, I’ve narrowed it down to just weekend rates because – in my experience – very few couples do their wedding banquets on a weekday.

Lo and behold. Some hotels have started counting Friday as a weekend, so make sure you look at the last column.

Rates are also rounded up!

Other Factors Determining Your Ang Bao Rates

Besides using the rates as a guide, here are some other important factors to consider:

  • How close are you to the bride and/or groom? You can probably give more than the listed rates if you’re close
  • How much can you comfortably gift without living on instant noodles for the rest of the month? If you’re in a good place, then maybe you can afford to give more.

Factors which you shouldn’t consider include:

  • Will I lose face if I give lesser than (insert name of colleague/friend/relative)?
  • Should I put the money into a Regular Shares Savings Plan for the couple instead since they’re just gonna blow it on an expensive banquet… oh, never mind.

Remember, your wedding ang bao is given to bless the couple’s marriage.

So whatever amount you choose, the wedding ang bao should be given with sincerity and your wholehearted blessing.

Always gift your wedding ang bao amount in even numbers.

As much as possible, an amount with the number 8 is always appreciated as it is considered an auspicious number.

Here are some of my go-to wedding ang bao amounts: 68, 80, 88, 100, 120, 128, 168, 188, and 200.

You get the picture.

Also, avoid the number 4 because it sounds like the Cantonese word for ‘death’ – so adjust the figures if you need to.
