You might be inspired by some of these lovely practices for your own wedding!

With wedding season in the air, it’s lovely to consider wedding traditions from around the world. With over 80% of the Filipino population being Catholic, there are many meaningful rituals and traditions that focus on the couple’s bond before God.

As the Philippines includes 7,000 islands, there are a number of different cultures and religions from the different regions. However, these 10 traditions are some of the most popular and the most beautiful. If you have traditions from your own culture we’d love to hear about them in the comments below!
