There are different versions, but this is what I learned from our pre-cana seminar at the Shrine of Jesus.
The candle is a symbol of the presence of Jesus in the couple’s lives and of the love that they must keep aflame all the days of their lives.
*Some believe that the candle that blows out first points to whoever will die first. Riiiight.
The veil is pinned on the bride’s head and on the groom’s shoulder. This forms the silhouette of a house, symbolizing that you now have the blessing to live under one roof.
This is my favorite. The cord means that you will now have to walk at the same pace towards one direction. Walang iwanan.
Not required, but definitely nice to have. It’s something that you as a couple can light on your anniversary as you offer prayers of thanks, praise and for special intentions, maybe.
