    One of my best friends is getting married and I would like to write him a card wishing him the best. How do I say the following?

    Jane and I congratulate you (pozdravlaem?) on your wedding and wish you success (zhelayu vam uspeha?) for many years to come.

    Also, I would like to gift them some money. Is there any superstition against an odd or even amount in Russian culture?

    Моя версия:
    (My version

    Мы с Джейн поздравляем вас с бракосочетанием и желаем чтобы все дальнейшие годы с вами об руку шли Успех и Благополучие.

    Нечётное - предпочтительнее.
    (Odd is preferrable)

    Another month ends. All targets met. All systems working. All customers satisfied. All staff eagerly enthusiastic. All pigs fed and ready to fly.

    Or, you could replace "чтобы шли с вами об руку" with "чтобы вам сопутствовали" , which is a "more dictionary" variant.
