Manner of wedding party

The other day,I was invited to a wedding party.
All of the people attended were who I have never known.That made me nervous. 
Because I don't get used to "party".

Anyway,I only know the wedding party in Japan.
But maybe we have some manners(weird rules).
Today,I'll tell you one of them.

-----About money----

You can't go to the wedding party empty handed.
And it's bad to have a gift on the day.

All you have to bring is money.

When I go to the wedding party,I have to prepare 30,000 yen.
Neither 20,000 yen nor 40,000 yen.
If you are rich or the person invited you is your close family,you had better prepare 50,000 yen for one person.

If you are invited with your partner,,

How much do you need??

The correct answer is 50,000 yen.It's not (30,000 x 2=)60,000yen.

This is wedding.So the number that can be divided by two is bad:/
(note:Japanese bills are 1,00yen,5,000yen and 10,000yen.
50,000yen:5 bills of 10,000yen.So it cannot be able to split the money in half.)
 Is it difficult and complicated?I also think that.
But this is Japanese tradition.

Well,how about 10,000 yen?
That's also bad because it's less money for a wedding.
Sorry I told you about too much money....
Actually the wedding bride was amazingly beautiful!
First,she wore kimono and next changed white wedding dress.

We could see happy friends and eat wonderful cuisine:D
Plus we received the book as a souvenir.
That is catalog,and I can choose something I want;)

For example: they are typical gift,


Hot spring ticket!

I've never seen such things.One day ticket for doing exercise and learning something...

Recently such a catalog book is popular.
But sometimes I receive dishes written bridal couple's name.
I want to stop such a gift,ever....

And I'll update beautiful wedding pictures on the day.
