Indian culture - lucky numbers or wedding presents
One of Joe's close friends, who was also a groomsman at our wedding, is getting married in December! We just received his wedding invitation and it is GORGEOUS. It's in India though, so unfortunately we won't be able to go. =(
We really would like to send them a gift though. Is there a customary or lucky wedding present for Indian Weddings?
For example, in Chinese weddings it's customary to give a red envelope with money or check. Also, the money should never have the numbers "4" or "0" in it, and preferably as many "9" and "8" numbers as possible, because those numbers are good luck. I was wondering if there might be something in Indian cultures that might be considered lucky, kind of like what I just described for Chinese cultures.
