Wedding ceremony rituals: Spanish ‘Las Arras’ coin exchange
The ancient Spanish wedding tradition of Las Arras can help you inject a taste of Spain into your ceremony.
Said by some to date back to biblical times and others to the times when a dowry was given, the exchange of 13 coins is today used as a commitment Ritual.
Couples can choose to bring coins from where they come from, where they live, where they have travelled or just Euros from here in Spain. Entirely your choice.
I write special words of commitment and there are often moments of humour when one or other of the couple would quite like to hang on to the coins!
