As the 'wedding over the anvil' tradition was based on a particularity of Scottish law vs English law; that two people could marry themselves by reciting their vows in front of witnesses in a public place and the town of Gretna Green was the first one over the border on a major coaching turnpike from London and the blacksmith's shop was close by, public and always had witnesses to hand.  It became a well know spot to elope to by couples not able to get the license and have the Banns posted due to parental disapproval.   So very scottish and I know of no other "tradition" involving it.  (Though I have run into quite a lot of hogwash on the subject with absolutely no documentation...)

She's going to want to decorate it, having a well cleaned and decorated shop might just become your main duty. :huh:

When Deb and I got married a good friend brought an anvil and played the wedding march on it. . . Sort of. ;)
