Filipino Wedding traditions during beach wedding

I was thinking of doing the coins, cord and veil.
What are your thoughts

We are not really infusing any of the Filipino traditions into the wedding, but rather embracing the local traditions in the Cancun/RM area and having a Mayan Cosmic wedding, which from what I've been told is extremely spiritual, emotional and very unique
My parents, both of whom migrated from PI, have really assimilated to the westernized culture, except for of course the obsessive need to feed everyone who walks through our door till their beyond stuffed, having a "party" for no reason at all, eating rice and fish religiously, and doing the rosary for every occasion imaginable, etc., etc., lol
They were not too happy about us not having a Catholic ceremony at first, but knew I really had my heart set on a beach ceremony -- plus FI is not Catholic nor is he Filipino. So my parents are happy with the fact that the Mayan Cosmic ceremony carries a lot of spiritual meaning. We will also end up getting our marriage blessed by the Church when we get back home.
The one thing we have brought in Filipino-wise -- is asking some couples to be our "sponsors", but moreso like Godparents to our marriage without the financial obligations, responsibilities, etc. Three couples on my side, and three couples on FI's side, and each couple will have a part in the cermony. We're pretty excited about that because they are all couples that we love and adore, and of course have great marriages that we hope to emulate!!

One of my friends who is also Filipino and got married on the beach incorporated the veil and chord into their ceremony and it worked well! Where are you getting married?
