    hi,

    what do white people normally give fellow white people getting married. I am an indian and my parents usually give practical cooking stuff as wedding presents but i'm afraid because of cultural differences this would not be an appropriate gift for a white friend who is getting married,

    many thanks

    rock

    Also is there a separate gift for the groom and bride or one?:confused:

    Cooking stuff is pretty common actually, or general practical things, I guess because traditionally they then get a house together :p: There's just one present for the both of them together. I've heard of blenders, saucepan sets, china sets, cutlery, glasses, all sorts :p: I'm sure they'll appreciate the thought whatever you get them.

    We generally prefer veils, spices and cows as wedding presents...

    Anywhere really, department stores are better as they will have more choice as to what to buy, places like Debenhams, Argos, John Lewis etc.

    My parent had a friend who got married and ASKED for gift vouchers from places like argos and john lewis, so that they could chose practical gifts...

    They were very rude tho and said that anything OVER £50 'would do'... lol
    Made us all chuckle!
    Sounds like there aren't many cultural differences between wedding gifts OP, which I guess is lucky for you! but serioualy, anything that has had thought put into it should be fine!
    Have fun at the wedding! xxx

    I find the term "white people" to be extremely racist.
    Please refer to my kind as "ones with fair coverings"

    Well he is assuming that all white people are Christian...

    Jewish people are generally white but celebrate weddings very differently to a Christian person.

    If a white person was this ignorant then it would be deemed racist. The double standards in this country and worldwide are great.

    A better title would have been, What are good wedding presents for Christian/Jewish/etc wedding. Rather than assuming all white people are of the same religion and culture which is quite obviously, wrong.
