When attending a Chinese wedding in Singapore, it's a custom to bring a red packet or ang bao for the newlyweds. However, there are several things to consider before handing the couple your red envelopes such as, the wedding banquet package, your relationship with the couple, and the lucky as well as unlucky numbers in the Chinese culture. All three factors will determine the final amount of money you'll be putting inside the red packet. Typically, someone will increase or even double the amount of their ang bao from the cost of wedding banquet if they're close with the couple. It's also important to remember that even numbers are considered luckier in Chinese. Meanwhile, the number '4' is gravely avoided as it has similar pronunciation as the word 'die' in Chinese.
