Red envelopes are our preference, which is the traditional Vietnamese wedding gift. Traditionally, gifting is made in the form of money, a symbol of prosperity, health, and happiness, in a card or envelope. The money is believed to protect the persons of younger generations from sickness and bad luck. During the reception, the bride and groom "chào bàn", which is the customary process of going from table to table to personally thank guests for their well wishes and to collect cards and envelopes. Usually, each table selects a representative to give a quick congratulatory toast to the bride and groom when they arrive at their table. We hope that you will participate in this rich tradition, and we look forward to seeing you at the reception!
