My mom is Filipina. I have been to too many Filipino weddings to count.

The secondary sponsers assist with the cord and veil. As far as the role of the primary sponsors, they just walk down the aisle. They really don’t really do anything else, but it is an honor to be a primary sponsor. They become your Ninang and Ninong (godmother and godfather).

I don’t see why you can’t have the primary sponsor do the cord, veil, and coins, but it’s not traditional. But I find that my Filipino family does not like to stray too far from traditions when it comes to weddings. Good Luck!

@leighannd: LOL…just had this conversation with my mother tonight. I really was not planning on doing the cord and veil or even principle sponsors. My mom’s response: “There’s no point in having a weedding if you don’t have godparents”. LOL!!! And she wants my crazy aunt to be a principle sponsor! I will likely have just one set of principle sponsors to act as witnesses to sign the marriage license.(NOT the crazy aunt)  And will probably have the secondary sponsors too….I’m just pickig my battles! I think it depends on how traditional your future in-laws are. They may insist on having secondary sponsors.

I am the last Filipina daughter to get married and we will not be doing sponsors or veils, etc.  Neither of my sisters did either.  Just your preference as to how traditional you want to be.
