Do you mean whether you know him or not , you will give him the wedding gift about 100 RMB ? I only attend my friends or other people I know's wedding and also I would give them something . sometimes it is not only money ,but something else .

Yes, we go to weddings of people we are close to, and give gifts. In some areas of the country money is expected, but here, it is usually a gift. They sign up at stores to say what they need.

well we have a different tradition here in my country. if the person will get married they will send invitations to the person they want to witness their vows, and if iam invited, i surely go for that. and bring a gift for them. thats it.

I really do not like going to weddings anymore. I would rather send them a gift also.

Normally here in the States, and I think in most "first world" Western nations, if you get an invitation to a wedding, you are rather expected to send a gift - and often with the invite will have the places where the couple are "registered." Having said that, I have not sent gifts for a couple of invites I've gotten, but they were from people I really didn't know, not even really aquaintences, more like someone related to someone who knew my mom and I some how got on the invite - probably in HOPES I'd send a gift. One even requested money rather than gifts - THAT one got laughed at by all my friends BEFORE it got trashed. I want to say that I don't have a lot of married friends, most of them were married before I met them that are married. The closest I ever got to being in a Wedding Party, was cutting the Grooms cake at a reception, tho the wedding where the former roommate was the Maid of Honor I did a lot more for. I took the flowers to the church, had the Bride dress at our place, took the Bride to the church with the Maid of Honor. I'm glad I wasn't actually IN the wedding party, all I wanted to do was COLLAPSE by the time of the Wedding! Heck, for my brother's wedding, all I had to do was go to a few showers, go to the rehersal (and dinner) and look nice for the wedding. Oh, and go on some tours around Houston with the family the day before - real hardship....

If I received the invitation,it is certain to go,otherwise it is very impolite.I will put a red envelope which put some money in,specifically to look at the relationship with he/she.

I think if someone who invites me into his/her wedding, usually I have to say yes. And if he/she is my good friend, I will be happy to go there. And usually our gift is also money. Because they can buy whatever they like. I love China

I go to weddings of friends and families, and I try to pick out special gifts that are meaningful to them. Usually not money.

Hi fwangaa, In our country when someone gets married you are only invited to their wedding if your are their relatives or close friends and then you just buy them wedding presents, you don't have to give them any money, but we don't attend peples wedding that we don't know and we don't have tp give them any money. Every country is different. Tamara
