yeah, I’m Filipino I definitely wanted to incorporate our unique traditions, it’s after the gospel

first a pair will light the candles (signifies enlightenment in you marriage)

you kneel then another pair puts a veil around the two of you (signifies the Holy Spirit as a cloud around you)

third another pair puts a cord arouund the two of you(signifies you runion in marriage as one)

the same pair takes it off in reverse order after communion

there is also the exchanging of coins at the end of the mass before the last blessing, your husband puts a  bag of coins in your hands there is a short prayer by the priest you have to google it exchanging of arrhas (coins in Spanish)–it signifies your husband will take care of yo and provides for you

 

I included an explanation in our program so our non Filipino guests would understand something I took for granted
