Welcome to Epidemic Sound


  1. Congratulations Paolo and Maiko!!! I love the fact you both are very honest about spending for marraige. I suggest you save the money for much more important things(invest, vacation, etc.):) ill send you both a card, just let me know where to send it:) Cheers

  2. Congratulations…have a nice life together with health and love, hope i find my japanish wife 😊 me too this year in my Tokyo trip (😄). Thank you both for your helpful videos !

  3. Congratulations!!!!! I'm travelling to Japan in a couple months and have found your videos super helpful and informative. I'm a korean born in Canada and I believe that in (modern?) Korean traditions you give money. More recently in Canada I've been noticing my friends ask for money instead of gifts in order to help pay for the wedding. You're supposed to give at least $100-$200 per person, depending on how big the wedding is, or at least enough to be able to cover your dinner (+drinks if it's an open bar).

  4. Congrats! In my country it is a minimum of $15,000 that you have to pay if you want to have a wedding ceremony. We also get legally married as easily as you do in Japan and then the party comes later. In my family I think that the most expensive wedding I've attended was a $40,000. It was quite something though, the invitees got presents as well and the food was excellent. VIP all the way. I personally see a small wedding with family and friends + a big luxurious holiday would be more beneficial to you and memorable than spending a large lump of money on just the ceremony!

  5. Congatulations !!!!!!! I love you guys' videos so this is so cool, thanks for sharing and showing us – super interesting to see how it is done in Japan ! Congrats again to the both of you !

  6. Congratulations! I think most Asians have some kind of Lucky/good day for marriage. For my culture being Hmong, our dates are set base on the moon pattern and time of the year. For example I got married at the beginning of the year while the moon was between the waxing crescent and the third quarter. It represents you going into a life that is getting fuller. Most parents don't want their children getting married at the end of the year because its "the end", which represents you going into a life that is mostly full so the relationship has small room for growth. I hope this makes sense. 😁 The actual date was chosen with an algorithm of our birthday days and birth years combined and it spits out our lucky days.

    My husband and I didn't see the reason for a 30k white wedding either, so we had a traditional Hmong wedding and hyped it with decorations, photographers and a photo booth. We spent about 15k, without the price of my dowry. So, ceremony or not, definitely have some kind of celebration with a good photographer. As for gifts, so the registry idea, I've noticed that its not so popular anymore, reason being is that most couples getting married live together before getting married and has established household items already. So instead of providing registry info on your invitation, they provide a link for donations to the couple's vacation. I recommend using PayPal and have your guest donate directly to your account as friends and family because honeymoon donation sites tend to take a small percentage of the donations. Thanks for having me relive my wedding experience again. Good luck guys!

  7. Congrats, I think you're starting a family now, that's a very Filipino thing when you get married.That's another chapter in your life.Are babies in your plans soon? Hope for the best for you two.

  8. Congratulations! You two are cute. In the U.S. when it comes to gifts it really depends on where you are from on what you would give. In some states you may bring a gift to the actual reception. In New York (where I’m from), the couple would register with several stores. Then the brides family (usually) would invite family and close friends to a bridal shower (party). Here the guests will give gifts, usually what is listed on the registry but it doesn’t need to be. Then for the wedding the people who attended the shower plus additional guests will bring money to the wedding. Minimum in this area is $100 per person but that would increase depending on how close you are to the bride and groom. This spending also does not include money spent on engagement parties, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and clothes if you are in the wedding party. If you are close friends with the couple you could easily spend over $1000 over the course of a year.

  9. @Maiko the list is a wedding registry and if you want a toaster, fancy silverware, wine carafe or blender for your new home you put it on the registry and your friends and family buy it for you! Congratulations!

  10. Congratulations! If I ever marry I want a simple wedding ceremony. I don't think it's worth it to spend too much money on the ceremony on a one day event. I would much rather save it for our house, furniture, etc.

  11. Congratulations, Paolo and your wife Maiko! Hope all the best for your wedding. We are Australians (background: Chinese
    /born in Vietnam, my wife is Vietnamese).
    **Today: Tradition way to go to a friend's wedding in Australia-Asian wedding .normally/average/ market price:$ A150/per person (not compulsory , you can pay less/more, estimating the couples will pay $130-150/per head for reception co., or pay more or less up to them)
    . If you inviting Westerners , you more likely (expecting) they give you a gift, or choose to chips in for your gifts list), you will value their friendship more important than $.
    * If you choose to invite only your close relatives and close friends only.
    The money that you received will be enough to pay for your reception co. You only pay for your personal expenses , such as Photos, video, cars, suits n wedding dresses, travel…..All the best.
