Hi, does anyone know what coins we need for church and anywhere online we can get them???
These are optional part of the mass. We chose not to do it. We got one free with our wedding rings
The last wedding I was at they just used a €2 coin
, i just sit and think of things i might need
, but i do think it would be a good thing to have and keep for my own kids getting married. the only ones i seen come from america. havnt got my rings yet so maybe i might get them free with them. fingers crossed
i've been told nothing by our priest so i dont know what i need or dont need as we just got a new priest to the parish and he's off on 4 months holidays
Hi ye we're doing the xchange of coins-love the idea, my mom has given me theres to use. We didnt get them when got wedding rings but we got our rings in two different shops. Most jewelles sell them though so wont be too hard to source.xx
Have seen all kinda of things exchanged at this part of the day
Best one i thought was when it came to the "i give you this gold and silver as tokens of all i posess...." the groom handed over the keys of his beamer to his new bride - anyone that knew the groom knew that this was his most prised posession and it got a giggle from all there - just thought it was a wee bit novel and cute!
ive honestly never seen this at any wedding ive been to! at what part of the ceremoney is it done?
Just after the exchange of the vows - basically a gold (not real gold) and silver coin are given from the bride to the groom and then the groom to the bride as "tokens of all they posess" - basically symbolising that the couple are giving each other completely to each other
I think its dying out in recent years to be honest but is simply one line in the vows and can be nice - i've the coins my mum and dad used on their day and mum is no longer with us so we mite just use them as another little way of remembering her in the day.
we got a lovely coin in fields, they engraved our names and the date on it too
Most jewelers give you a coin with your wedding rings. We got ours engraved with our names and the date. Its a nice keepsake.
We exchanged it after our vows as a symbol of sharing "all that we possess".
