When I was a little kid my mom would take me with her to her home province, Marinduque, to attend weddings of relatives. I often find myself in a dreamy state at wedding receptions…much like the same feeling I had watching the wedding of William and Catherine Mountbatten – Windsor (William and Kate).
Above photo is of my older brother and sister-in-law. They are doing the traditional wedding dance while an aunt and a cousin pin money on kuya’s barong. This has been a tradition I’ve long seen in Marinduque, it is to help the newlyweds with their expenses as a new couple. I’m not sure when did couples in our province, Cavite, started having such because I remember mostly utensils and whatever couples can use at home are the popular choices for wedding gifts.
