Here's what you need to know as you plan your Filipino Wedding!



One Year Before/ASAP:



  • Most Filipino weddings are held in a Catholic church with a full Mass. Meet with a priest and reserve church.

  • Make sure the venue allows for the releasing of doves on the premises.

  • Most often, the gown is custom-made. Start researching gown ideas. Traditionally, both bride and groom wear white.

  • Choose attendants. Aside from the bridesmaids and groomsmen, three additional pairs of wedding attendants stand as secondary sponsors. Each pair assists in one of the following ceremonies held during the Nuptial Mass: wedding candle, veil and cord.


10 Months Before:



  • Meet with the caterer to plan a Spanish-inspired menu.


8 Months Before:



  • Make sure your attendants and sponsors understand their specific roles in the wedding.


7 Months Before:



  • Consult with florist about carrying an heirloom rosary with the bridal bouquet.

  • Plan dove-releasing ceremony. Book/order a pair of white doves and cage.


5 Months Before:



  • Plan ceremony that incorporates the arrhae and a Nuptial Mass. Traditionally, the bridegroom also walks down the aisle, either with his parents or alone.

  • Decide if you'll be tossing the bouquet or offering the flowers to a Saint of the image of the Virgin Mary at the church.


2 Months Before:



  • Gather items needed for the ceremony, including the unity candle, cord, and 13 gold or silver coins.

  • Gather items needed for the reception, including money crowns, sashes, leis and scotch tape for the money dance.
