Tuck one of the pins into your jacket, and cast the other into a fire saying "May my heart soon be aflame with love." Keep the pin you are wearing, and transfer it from outfit to outfit until the wedding takes place: most important, wear it on the day itself. Kiss the bride who gave you the pins three times for luck after the ceremony, and you should be lucky enough to meet someone special before the moon has set that night.
