Red Envelope
Red Envelope

For Jason and Shutao, your presence at our wedding celebration is gift enough.

If you wish to bring a gift, however, we suggest bringing the "Red Envelope" (红包) pronounced Hong Bao, an ancient Chinese custom, which will be included in your wedding invitation. The red color of the envelope symbolizes good luck and also wards off evil spirits. The monetary gift further signifies goodwill to the newlyweds . The amount of money contained in the envelope usually ends with an even digit, but an exception exists for the number nine, as the pronunciation of nine (九) is homophonous to the word long (久), and is the largest single digit. The character 囍, shown on your Red Envelope (and above), means "double happiness," and is traditionally associated with marriage. More information can be found in the link below.
