How many of these that provide financial support to the bride and groom in the form of paying for a certain aspect of the wedding costs.This type of sponsorship stems from old times where a couple's wedding was more of a get together and different people helped the couple with this or that - a wedding potluck of sorts.After the engagement is announced, each couple has to choose a set of Godparents, a large honour for those selected, who they consider wise as advisors for their marriage, and who will be there in times of trouble and as aids and counsellors for problems.Traditionally they give the couple a rosary and a bible as a wedding gift as a symbol of their support and approval, and are subsequently given a special place in the church next to the couple as a sign of respect.
Another element that is key to note is that of the padrinos and madrinas.
