@killergiraffe:  I hope someone answers this because I’m in exactly the same situation. I’d like to have multiple sponsors- at least one couple from each of our “sides”- but the obvious choices from his side are couples where the man is already a groomsman.

Hi! My FI is Filipino – I am Caucasian. My FI family would agree with your FI mom about picking a different set of sponsors for each tradition. When they were explaining the traditions to me, they said that each is special in its own way and those we pick would be honored to do this for us. They know more than me on this subject lol so we have three sets of secondary sponsors.

Also secondary sponsors do not have to be part of the bridal party. They can be anyone you would like. My FI and I are picking from our bridal party because our processional will be long as it is (the primary and secondary sponsors are part of the processional). We are also including the coins and the bible. So on top of the ring bearer we also have a coin bearer and bible bearer.

@killergiraffe:  

You are welcome! The groomsmen for our wedding consist of a few Filipinos whereas there is not a single Filipina on my side. So, when we do pick our secondary sponsors they won’t exactly know what they are doing either. I don’t know if you are doing any sort of rehearsal before the wedding but I figured that once we pick our sponsors we will explain a little about what they are to do during that particular tradition and they can practice it during the rehearsal.
 
As for our readings – we were told we can’t pick them until we do our pre cana and receive the little booklet. It is hard because I have seen so many nice readings but most probably wouldn’t be in the booklet.
 
Here are some links I found about readings and timelines 🙂
