Q: Do I Bring A Gift To A Singapore Malay Wedding?


Do not worry about bringing a gift to a Singapore Malay wedding, however cash and checks are always appreciated. Singapore Malay weddings are more about well wishes, communal ties, and the “sharing of happiness” than they are about gifts. That said, monetary gifts are considered lovely perks. If you are concerned about the amount, think of your gift as covering the food and booze you and your wedding date consume. Place the money in an envelope and give it discreetly to the father of the bride (if you are male) or the mother of the bride (if you are female). Expect a souvenir as a “thank you” for your gift.

Remember, your gift is helping the happy couple recoup the cost of their wedding and get started on their new journey together!
