Filipino Marriage Traditions

By May 24, 2022November 14th, 2022No Comments

Philippine marriage customs are not quite the same as the ones from most other countries. The first of all major difference is that the Israel does not have a bridal party, instead it has sponsors. The first sponsors are generally the bride’s family or perhaps close friends. They are similar to the conventional best man and besty, but their role in the wedding is different. The second and third beneficiaries are a couple’s family or good friends who are like family to the bride and groom. They are really each given a duty in the wedding. The last sponsor wraps around the couple and serves as a personal good friend of the bride and groom.

Another tradition in the Philippines is a rice grain ceremony. The couple is usually served grain grains around the first evening of the commemoration, symbolizing a very good life alongside one another. The bride and groom may also be given a rice bathroom upon moving into their reception place or residence. Rice is actually a staple plant in the Korea and it is considered almost holy. In historic times, marriage ceremonies were officiated simply by priestesses positioning hands over a mound of rice. The newlyweds then ate the rice graine as their initially meal with each other.

The ceremony also includes the draping of a ceremonial wide lace veil by the bride and groom’s godparents. The veil symbolizes the unity of the couple and is often made of lace. One other Philippine wedding tradition is the draping of a ceremonial cord about the couple. The cord can often be made of silk and was personally weaved by the bride’s mother.
