The Menu of Chinese Wedding in Brunei

About Menu of The Chinese Wedding in Brunei Darussalam, What to expect during the dinner... the menu will be on the table...
How much people give for the "ang pow" not only depends on how well the giver knows the married couple but also the venue of the wedding reception....Really, no kidding....
If its kampong style wedding - eg. malay wedding, in the afternoon at home with camps, then $10 would be enough (though I have heard of people of just giving $1 or $2, yet bring the whole family for the event!!!).... but for Chinese wedding, possibly $35 - $45 per head is reasonable, from a posh hotel to a minor restaurant with reputation...

Usually the tables are arranged in a seats of 10, so restaurants calcuate by the number of tables the married couple booked. So, per head meal is $35, then for a table of 10, it would be a $350, and if you have 50 tables for the event $350X50=$17,500 for a wedding dinner.
If you have two reception, one for the groom family and friends and the other celebrated by the bride's family for their family as well as her friends, the both reception could cost B$25,000... and thats for the dinner only....

Hey, nice light.... The ballons are not included in the reception package.
This you usually have to ask outsiders to do for you, at a price....
In Chinese wedding reception, most of the time, it would be a 8 or 9-course dinner. Its not buffett but a real 9-course dinner. It's significantly cheaper than Malay lunch dinner which can cost about $10 but for Chinese wedding dinner it could cost $30 and above. Most of the time, the food served inclues, steam fish, prawns, chicken (since many Chinese dont eat beef because of religious beliefs), rice or noodle, vegetables, shark-fin soup, cold dish starter and the final one usually "sweet" dish which is sago or longan cold drink as well as a Chinese "biscuit".

Hence it is very important to guests to RSVP to say if they are coming or not so that the newly wedded couple would not waste $$ on their reception for people who dont turn up.
