First time going to an indian wedding dinner.

1) Should I give red ang pow and how much is appropriate for 1 person?

2) What usually happens like at the start, middle and end of wedding?

3) Any do and donts that I should watch out?

Minimum RM 50 . It depends on how close are you to that person . Like me , if co -worker i give rm 50 . Close friends RM 100 to rm 150 . Relative RM 200 above .

2) What usually happens like at the start, middle and end of wedding?

Usually the couple will enter once there is a decent amount of crowd in the hall , then they will proceed to cut cake , open the champagne bottle and then probably a speech then proceed to makan . They will also go from table to table to say hi to guest . Most dinners will have some dance performance too .

3) Any do and donts that I should watch out?

Nothing much to watch out for .

Thanks! Do you give the red ang pow packet or a white envelope? When should I give it? After dinner or as soon as I see him?

It signifies 'I expect to see you soon' and 'continuity of relation' as '0' signifies the end.

If I give you 51, the actual amount I have given is just 50, the extra 1 is what you will owe me, so you will have to meet me someday to repay and make it even (and add an extra 1 so that now I will owe you and HAVE to meet you to repay). It is like a seal on 'see you later'.

Like red angpau vs white angpau la but indian version.
