When you invited your guests to your wedding, you did it very personally through a printed invite, a social media event calendar, or a meet-up. Now that you have decided to postpone your wedding, your guests will appreciate it very much if they hear the news from you instead from any of your vendors. No need to re-send a new invitation for the new date. Just notify them and make an effort to connect with them as a couple.

 

Revisit Supplier Contracts

Now is the time to check your existing vendor contracts from your file and study the clause for postponement or cancellation. Talk to your supplier and discuss how you can form a new agreement now that both parties are faced with this situation. Write the new agreement down to safeguard both parties and continue to work together towards your new wedding date. Remember, listen to your vendors and be considerate to them too because they are affected by the situation.

8 Rules to Determine How Much Laisee to Give to a Couple During Weddings

When you are invited to a wedding, one important thing you must prepare is the laisee packet for the couple. For most Hong Kong weddings, money is given instead of material wedding gifts–such a practical practice! But how much money should be put into the laisee? There are several rules that help determine the amount that you need to put into the laisee. We listed them down for you and included some other points you must note. Let’s go through them now.

 

 

Rule 1: Give in Amounts That Total to Lucky Even Numbers

The common amounts are 600, 800, 1500, 2,800, etc. Avoid giving amounts that result in odd numbers because this is only suitable for funerals, not for weddings.

 

Rule 2: Consider Your Relationship

The closer the relationship, the bigger the amount for the laisee. By relationship, it can mean your relationship with the couple or the parents, depending who invited you. If you are part of the bridal party, even if you will receive another laisee from the couple separately, you should also prepare one for the couple too.

Their ceremony took place in an intimate barn with rustic elements which where fitting details for the venue. Left and right bright orange pumpkins surrounded the couple, who made sure to take snaps by the beautiful displays.
