Weddings involve the bride and groom and their families in a complex series of exchanges of gifts. Jewellery and items of clothing are exchanged, as well as objects which have symbolic value. Some exchanges involve objects of adornment for the bride and groom; others may be items for the new household which will be established. Gifts of money may be intended to reimburse some of the costs of a wedding. Aside from exchanges between the bride and groom and their parents, small gifts or mementoes may be given to the guests at weddings, and the guests themselves may give the newly-weds more substantial gifts including money.
