Mensagem:  Yes, I also found this tradition weird when I first heard of it. Horseshoes are in fact used as a symbol of good luck in weddings. I don't think the association is clear today, but I read that, in the past, horseshoes were either a symbol of fertility (Greeks) or a way of keeping the Devil away (Christians). I am sure the natives can give us more details about this curious practice.
