filipino cocktail hour? serve like lumpia, bbq sticks, mini turuns/banana q, etc? aside from food i can’t think of any other traditions that you haven’t listed aside from candle sponsors, but it would be weird to have candle sponsors and not rope, coin and veil sponsors. If you ask, maybe you could have to sponsors even though your not getting married in a church?

I’m not Catholic and we’re doing the veil and cord at our ceremony! We’re also doing the godparents/sponsors.

@NVMox2480:  Yeah our ceremony will most likely run around 40 mins long with the veil and cord. The barong is a good idea and I’m sure people would like seeing him in one!

It’s kind of hard to think of ideas if there are a lot of restrictions right?

I had an outdoor ceremony and we incorporated the cord, veil, and coins and it was only 20 minutes total for the whole ceremony. I had two readings and our officiant had a 2 minute “homily.” I think you’ll be fine if you fit that in!
