Has anyone done an arras in DR, or plan to? If so, where did you get yours, and how did it go?

The arras are thirteen coins, traditionally gold or silver – though gold plated coins, and coins or tokens made of other metals are now common as well. The coins themselves are usually presented and kept in some sort of elegant box or pouch.
Typically the groom in some way presents the coins to his bride. It is said to symbolize that he will be there to protect and provide for her, and also symbolizes that he shares all his worldly processions with her – his wealth is her wealth. The thirteen coins are sometimes said to stand for love, trust, commitment, respect, joy, happiness, harmony, wisdom, wholeness, nurturing, caring, cooperation, and peace – traits the couple would want their marriage to be filled with.
