And another question related to wedding:
I remember I once saw a film called Marriage Crasher, in which people say "Mazel Tov" to when they propose a toast. But someone says that "Mazel Tov" is used by Jews, and you will get yourself into trouble if you say "Mazel Tov" to a Muslim. Is it true? What about saying "Mazel Tov" to Christians?
JingtianSome people think that "congratulations", especially to the bride, is impolite; I think this has changed and is now o.k. "Best wishes", "God bless you both" are always fine.
No, I would not say Mazel Tov to a Muslim. To Christians who know its meaning, it would probably be o.k.
"Best wishes" or "All the very best for your future together" would be fine.
Say "Congratulations" to the groom. Say "Best wishes" to the bride.
I am lucky that I have asked this question, otherwise, I might make a mistake by using "Mazel Tov" in the future.

Ur?: When people attend their friends' wedding ceremony, what do they say to their friends? And,you will get yourself into trouble if you say "Mazel Tov" to a Muslim. Is it true?
My understanding: Well, first if, you said that to a muslim that should have understanding and patience enough to inform u of the correct way: We as muslims should say(From the book of Selected prayers page 53) - May Allah swt bless ur spouse for u; and may he bless and join u in a happy union.
Insha'Allah(By Allah swt's will), this will be of benefit! Smile, it's an act of charity!
