Arras (Spanish and Latino)

During Catholic ceremonies in Spain, Panama, and Mexico, the groom presents the bride with thirteen gold coins, known as arras, to represent his ability to support her. The coins are blessed by the priest and passed through the hands of the newlyweds several times, ending with the bride. Want to make the ritual a little more balanced? Consider giving each other coins, to symbolize shared responsibility.
