For those of us living in Hawaii especially, or who have had Oriental weddings, this is a very important symbol! The women traditionally fold 1,000 little Origami cranes and either hang them from a paper parasol or some important object, or have them laid flat and mounted into a symbol - maybe their families crest, a favorite oriental symbol, whatever is important to the couple. But they come out GORGEOUS on a huge gold frame with a black velvet backing and all laid out flat in the design. It takes quite a learned talent to be able to do this properly.
The 1,000 cranes used to be done only by the bride-to-be to symbolize her long life of patience she will give to her new husband throughout their married life.
Now days everyone chips in to help fold them. I did them for our wedding and I tell you to this day I can remember how HARD IT was to fold them so every edge was sharpe and precise. It teaches you patience and perserverence. I hung my small gold ones from a beautiful paper parasol at our reception off to the siide of our cake.
