Doesn't happen in the weddings here in Manila. What a shame — it's such a cute custom. Now, the bride usually carries a little bag during the reception to put cash gifts in.
That's a wonderful tradition, Lay ... ;) What's the origin of the tradition?
Thanks for your interpretation of my picture. I agree with you about the feeling.Looks like a lovely wedding!
beautiful occasion =). oh, that's a nice way to earn some cash. i've heard of this tradition in the ilocos region too. i'm not so sure if it originated from there though.
I tried google, to no avail. I have no idea where or when this practice started. This isn't really an expected part of the wedding but its a fun way to add a 'Filipino' flavor to the gathering. And adds a little cash to the newlywed's coffer at the same time.
this is a great idea. i think it's unfair that newlyweds get the money action though.it would be nice to be able to do the money dance anytime im running a bit low on funds.
Tammie-- BWahahaha! You almost made me snort! hahahaha
This is something that Cajun's do in Louisiana. The story goes that originally people were so poor that they couldn't afford gifts for the bride and groom so they would pin money to the bride's veil. I've seen it done and I think it's a eally fun custom.
