fabric and ribbon flowers is made into a pretty bag to hold
the cards bearing good wishes from the wedding guests. This
bag would also be good to hold money from the "Dollar a Dance"
a special dance with the Bride. A traditional dance for some
families, and the money is an extra gift for the Bride and
Groom to enjoy on their honeymoon.
