What was the Custom of Collecting?

What was the Custom of Collecting? In Finland, the bride-to-be was considered “snobbish” if she did not go door-to-door to receive her gifts in a pillowcase.  Accompanying her, an elderly married man, carrying an umbrella (for shelter), came along and was given a drink at each door.  Today, an umbrella is  used as a  decoration symbolizing “protection”.   This custom can be included very beautifully in your wedding by having your maids carry “parasols” to match your wedding colors.
