Hey girls, we got a wedding coin along with our rings, but now I'm seeing alot in sample mass booklets "A & B exchange gold & silver, or gifts etc"
Should we have gotten 2 wedding coins so we could give them to each other?!So confused!
No I think its just one. You hubby gives it to you and then you give it back to him.
It should really be two coins. I had only bought one coin, thinking that I give it to DH ans he gives it back, but at our rehersal the priest told us that if we do that it's like 'receiving a gift and then giving it back'! With our wedding the following day I didn't have time to get a second coin so I just gave it to DH on the day! Didn't bother me in the slightest, but if I had known in advance I would have bought two for the sake of it.
Don't stress over it though! Enjoy every second of your day
Think it's only one coin. Traditionally given by the groom to the bride to symbolise his willingness to share all that he owns / will earn.
We didn't bother with this TBH.
I've never seen a couple use two wedding coins, only one.
We are just having the one coin
Im jumping on here to ask where to even get these wedding coins? Hardy even seen them used but like the idea ????
My parent's have always given my other siblings an old coin(half crown, shilling etc) when they got married that they could use for the ceremony. Our Jeweller is engraving a silver coin with our names & date of our wedding as a complimentary gift. Bought engagement ring & also buying wedding rings there.
i had never heard wedding coins before until we were ordering our wedding rings.
They are doing a special which includes an engraved wedding coin. You should be able to get one where ever you get your rings i would imagine.

You've kind of answered the question I had.. Is this necessary? What I mean is, is it a REQUIREMENT or something we can just leave out of the booklet and no one will know?!
