Filipino Wedding Ceremony
With 80% of Filipinos being Catholic, it’s no surprise that Filipino weddings are heavily influenced by this religion. From reading prayers and blessings to wearing white in honor for Christian purity or exchanging necklaces as symbols of their love story – there is always something special about the church at a wedding! Their tradition is truly beautiful.
Filipino Wedding Sponsors
A Filipino wedding is not just an intimate affair between two people, it’s a beautiful event that includes many more significant members. These important guests play key roles in the lives of both bride and groom- they’re called “Principal Sponsor” or Secondary Sponsors for their courage and support throughout everything together! During ceremonies prayers are offered up by all those gathered to honor these special individuals who have helped them achieve this momentous occasion with love from friends old (and new).
Catholic Coin Ceremony | The Arras
The coins worn by the bride and groom on their wedding day are not just any old currency. They’re 13 Arras – or a purseful! Brought to the altar in this manner, these sacred pennies represent the couples’ commitment towards each other as well as future children they plan on having together; before God at church today they make promises that will live forever with them through good times and bad because it’s never too late for love
The tradition began centuries ago when wealthy men would give token gifts (often jewelry) specifically tailored toward newlyweds from rich families who could afford luxuries such marriage-related expenses but still might lack necessities like food beforehand following nuptials.
Arras are still seen today – not just arinsal but at weddings all throughout the world because filipino wedding traditions have carried over globally…even near and far!
