The wedding arrhae carry a great symbolism; the word arrhae comes from the Spanish word arras, which means "earnest money." Arrhae is also a legal term that stands for "money or something valuable to symbolize a contract"--just right in signifying that marriage is a binding agreement between two people. In Christian celebrations, 13 coins are traditionally used, with each coin standing for Jesus Christ and his 12 apostles. This collection of coins symbolizes how the bride and groom will dedicate their lives to supporting each other.

As the arrhae are an important part of the ceremony, they are usually held in a special container. Typically they're placed in a pouch or held on a pillow, but couples nowadays have gotten creative with the containers that hold the arrhae.

Our gallery below has some pretty and creative ideas that real couples have come up with to keep their wedding arrhae. See the photos for inspiration.
