I'm looking for more information on the Panamanian wedding tradition that has the groom give the bride 13 gold coins that have been blessed by a priest.
I'm getting married at the Decameron in November and this is the only unique local wedding custom that I have been able to find.
Has anyone done this or seen this at a wedding in Panama?
Do the coins have to be gold?!
Should the coins be from a specific country?
Is there possibly some sort of 'wedding kit' that you can buy down there with commemorative-type coins? We'll only have really one full day between arrival and the wedding, so not much time to go shopping...
Any help would be appreciated!
