This offer includes for:
Services of a Kapuwa (celebrant);
Bouquet of seasonal flowers for the bride;

As part of the blessing seven betel leaves are offered to the Gods with a request that protection is provided to the seven generations that will originate from the marriage.
The couple's fingers are tied together with a gold thread to symbolize the bond and holy water is then poured over the fingers.

A brass oil lamp is then lit by the couple to signify a bright new future together.
