imagesBlessing of the Veil

The blessing of the veil is a custom which is  both popular and frequently done for Mexican and Filipino Catholics. The veil is normally pinned to the groom’s shoulder and over the bride’s hair to symbolize the shelter they provide them. The gift of coins by the groom to the bride and her acceptance symbolizes mutual obligations to care for the family and home.

AND SO IT IS.
