The wedding ring, traditionally a plain gold band, is the oldest surviving symbol of marriage. The circle represents eternity and never ending love, and the gold, purity of intent. It is placed on the fourth finger of the left hand. If rings cannot be bought, it is legal to borrow them for the wedding.

The throwing of the Garter by the groom and the Bouquet by the bride is believed to bring good luck and marriage to whomever they are caught by.
