In tribal wedlocks, the brunt of the wedding celebration’s expenses is definitely shouldered by the prospective bridegroom’s parents, and this practice is true in a majority of instances. Sometimes this custom is modified in some tribes where it is the custom for some relatives to contribute certain amounts. Tinguian tradition is explicit with regard to this, as future brides of the tribe are required to contribute rice, a cow or carabao and two jars of wine. Isneg parents of the bride-to-be are even more liberal and vain because they are said to take pride in shouldering the wedding celebration’s expenses.
