Customs and superstitions regarding marriage in the Philippines vary. Some examples are:



  • The groom usually wears the Barong Tagalog during the wedding, along with the male attendants, though nowadays the wealthy opt to don Western attire such as a tuxedo.

  • Sukob: weddings held within the same year by two siblings, usually sisters, are frowned upon as it is regarded as bad luck.

  • Some hold it that the wedding rings dropping to the ground is a portent of bad luck (this is usually said to the ringbearer to ensure that the child is careful in handling the rings).

  • Money, in the form of paper bills, is sometimes taped or pinned to the groom and bride during the reception.
