Groom[ edit ] The groom is traditionally clothed in the Barong Tagalog , the formal and traditional transparent, embroidered, button-up shirt made from jusi also spelled as husi fabric made from pineapple fibers.

Wedding Guests[ edit ] Males guests typically wear the Filipino Barong, or a suit. Women wear a formal or semi-formal dress, the length and color determined by the wedding theme. For Chinese Filipino weddings, it is customary for the bride to wear red. It is frowned upon to wear this color as a guest, for the same reason. Black and white ensembles are also considered impolite in traditional Chinese Filipino weddings.

These colors symbolize death and mourning, and are deemed to have no places in a festive celebration like weddings. However, using these as accents is acceptable. The groom arrives an hour earlier than the bride for the purpose of receiving guests at the church or venue.

Afterwards, the wedding party assembles to enter the church for the processional. Multiple pairs of godparents are customary, with six godmothers ninang and six godfathers ninong Ritual objects[ edit ] Ceremonial paraphernalia in Filipino weddings include the arrhae , the candles, the veils , the cord, and wedding rings. The arrhae is a symbol of his "monetary gift" to the bride because it is composed of 13 pieces of gold, or silver coins, a "pledge" that the groom is devoted to the welfare and well-being of his wife and future offspring.

Both rings and arrhae are blessed first by the priest during the wedding. For Christians, this embodies the presence of God in the union.

An old folk belief holds that should one of the candles go out during the rite, the person beside it will die ahead of the other. The couple takes the two lighted candles and together lights a single candle. For Christians, lighting this single candle symbolises the inclusion of Christ into their life as a married couple. The veiling ritual signifies the clothing of the two individuals as one. Cord[ edit ] After the veiling, the last pair of secondary sponsors will then drape the yugal over the shoulders of the couple.

The cord is customarily shaped or looped to form the figure "8" a lucky number; the figure is also interpreted as the infinity sign , to symbolise "everlasting fidelity.

Filipino Muslims in the Mindanao region of the Philippines commonly practice pre-arranged marriages and betrothal. Same sex marriage[ edit ] Main article: Same-sex marriage in the Philippines Marriage between couples of the same sex is currently not possible under the laws of the Philippines because, according to the Filipino Family Code , both family and marriage are considered as heterosexual units.

This march was also done after the ceremony until the newly-wed couple reaches their abode. The purpose of this procession is similar to the current practise of breaking plates during the wedding reception, in order to dispel bad luck.

Wedding gowns cannot be worn in advance, [3] as any black-coloured clothing during the ceremony, and sharp objects such as knives cannot be given as gifts. The remedy to this belief, called sukob , is to have the one marrying later pass through the back entrance of the church instead of its main doors. Bride and groom cannot have marital relations starting from the 60th day prior to the wedding.
