“As part of the ceremony to symbolize unity, a large loop of rosary beads is placed in a figure eight shape around the necks of the couple after they have exchanged their vows. The specially appointed ‘padrinos’ are in charge of lassoing the couple together. The lasso is then gifted to the bride as a souvenir of her taking the groom’s hand in marriage & symbolizes their commitment to each other.”
