that's why I feel the big Chinese wedding dinner mentality should die fast, it's expensive, tiring, a hassle, and 80% of the people invited are not even someone you know closely. Most of it are from the parent's friends. And those old people karaoke galore is a torture to boot.
Just invite really close friends and family, ideally not more than 60 people, a small dinner with bride and groom giving brief speech then done. Don't even need the guest to pay for anything since it's affordable.
