CALLING ALL FILIPINA BRIDES

Hello, My name is Cassie and I am a Filipina bride getting married on March 29.  I am incorporating some Filipino traditions into my wedding, but not a lot since my fiance is German/Scottish.  I wanted to post to ask if a few things weren't unheard of for me to do

For example, both my fiance and I are iffy on the money dance idea.  I do not mean this in a disrespectful way, as I do want to represent my Filipino culture somehow.  But would perhaps hiring Tinikling dancers be an alternative to doing the wedding dance?  

Also, we are incorporating the cord and veil during the ceremony.  Anyone have any tips on how to cue the REMOVAL of the cord and veil?  Like, what happens when it is placed, is it just placed then we wait a minute then take it off?  That seems odd to me.  Ideas would be great!

Any other tips you can give me to respect my Filipina culture would be great!

Thanks!
Cassie  

Re: CALLING ALL FILIPINA BRIDES

  • I am in the same boat, but reversed. My FI is Filipino and I am white (pretty much every Eastern Euro country mix) and we are incorporating some of the traditions.

    I am interested in hearing what people have to say about this!
    Thanks
