A review of the practices of gift exchnage upon marriage in Britain between 1945 and 2003: an exploration of the rituals, of 'rites' of marrirage, and how changes in the social status of marriage and cohabitation has altered these rituals. As well as significant legal changes affecting marriage, the commericialisation of weddings has had an important impact in this postwar period.
