Arras & Coins

Why do hispanic weddings include the carrying of the arras?
The thirteen coins are presented to the bride by the groom to symbolize the groom’s commitment to take care of his bride and make his wealth hers. The passing of coins back and forth is a symbol of sharing worldly goods, for richer or poorer. In Catholic Spain, the number thirteen represents Christ and his twelve apostles. The treasure box in which the coins are kept is often elaborate and reflects the status of the family.

Find the perfect arras box in gold-tone or silver-tone with dime size coins to match the theme of your wedding. The arras boxes come in all shapes and sizes. Many of the arras boxes are studded with crystals for a truly elegant accessory.
