Many people say that the pinning of money on the bride and groom is a Cypriot tradition, but my parents did it and they are not Cypriot. Many other non Cypriots have told me the same thing.
So when is it appropriate to pin money?
Ted says: “People wait to see whether the bride’s family starts it off, then close relatives, then friends. Sometimes they pin may notes together and pin one end to the bride and the other to the groom. Other times they put the money and a card in an envelope and pin that to the brides dress.”♥
- What is the best way to stick the money together into those long strips?
- Are you a bride that has experienced this? Did it spoil your dress? Could you still dance?
- How long does the money stay pinned on the dress for?
- Can you use any form of money? Cheques? $5 notes? Coins?
