Indian culture is one which is based more on respect for each other than anything else. And nothing is a better example of this than an Indian wedding. We Indians take the Sanskrit saying Atithi Devo Bhava very seriously, and more so when there is a wedding in our house. Each and every guest who attends your wedding is an important part of your celebrations and even though millennials these days have many different beliefs about weddings, one simple fact will never change. That fact is that your guests are of utmost importance and they deserve to be treated with love and respect. And in every Indian wedding, the guests are given some return gifts as a token of this love and appreciation for being a part of the celebrations and making your big day even more special.
