Prepare shit tons of small change in (red?) pockets. I don't know where's the wedding so the amount in every pockets (envelope) might vary from 4000/5000/10000/20000 riels or even more.

The MC usually says a lot of BS and claiming indirectly "tips" for the participants and it's custom for the bride's side to handle those "formalities".
