- Wedding: October 2012
@DeadlyNightshade: bride price are NO LONGER presented in money form. Instead, the families exchange items that represent things that they each want for the new union. For example, a family album and tree to represent the acceptance of their family into yours. An old clock to show that they believe the marriage will stand the test of time. Etc. It’s all symbolic.
OP, I think you should forget about the money all together… and try to uphold the tradition this way. It’s a lot less insulting to both sides of the family.
