A tid bit from a Puerto Rican wedding

During a traditional Puerto Rican wedding ceremony, the priest will bless a plate of coins for the groom. After the wedding vows have been exchanged, the groom gives the plate of coins to the bride. The brides will keep these coins as a wedding present from her new husband. The gift of coins represent good luck and prosperity for the newlyweds.
