Presenting here, an age old tradition in the region of Bicol (Philippines).
In a Bicolano wedding event, the principal sponsors and the couple’s parents join hands and help out newly weds navigate a new beginning. A little help can go a long, long way.
After the entourage and guests had partaken of the food for the occasion, the emcee call principal sponsors and parents of the couple one at a time for their monetary gifts.
The emcee teases them to open wide their wallets and hand out big money for the new couples. Proceeds from the joint effort of fund raising becomes the seed money for the new couple.
And the fun is not yet over. Because of this part of the program, the Bicol Pantomina begins!
