Hi! I am half filipina (FI is not) and would like to incorporate my heritage by doing the traditional filipino ceremony (coins, veil, cord). Not doing the unity candle because our ceremony is outside and the candle might not work so well outside, so we're just going to do a sand ceremony instead.
I know there are traditionally coin, veil, and cord sponsors. Can we just have our BM's and GM's double duty and be the coin, veil, and cord sponsors? One of my friends did this for her ceremony so I was wondering if this is ok? I'd rather not have to find more people to do these things when our WP can do it...
Also, I read that at least some of sponsors typically are the godparents, that the sponsors typically help with the cost of the wedding, and are listed on the invitations? I don't know where my godparents are (parents lost touch with them). Haven't seen them since I was very young. FI and I are both paying for our wedding ourselves and I don't feel comfortable with anyone else contributing (other than our own parents but they haven't offered so it's just FI and I). As such, I don't feel comfortable listing anyone else as hosts on the invitation other than myself and FI so I don't want the traditional sponsors in that sense.
Help! I'm so confused with this! Sorry I rambled a little bit. Thanks in advance for the help!
