TRADITIONAL TRIMMINGS

You walk slowly and regally towards the elaborately decorated hall with your family and friends, dressed in your striking Malay garb and flanked by colourful bunga manggar bearers. Upon your approach, the waiting hadrah troupe begin to beat their kompang. Their melodious singing in tune with the incessant beat of the hand drums sets your heart pounding.

 

Suddenly, you are waylaid by Mak Andam and members of the bride's family. In jest and with much fanfare they demand that you pay the entrance fee to see your bride. You hand over the pre-determined amount knowing that it's all part of the day's revelry. Mak Andam and her party let you through. Your radiant bride sits there demurely in her traditional Malay array, eyes averted from you, a quiet smile playing on her glowing face. You take your place beside her on the wedding dais.

 

As you both look purposefully straight out at you guests, family members begin to toss the fertility symbols - sprinklings of flower petals and rice - over the two of you. You both exult in groom are literally king and queen for the day. Malaysia's rich tapestry of living colours offers couples an amazing array of traditional styled weddings to choose from.

 
 

 

You can opt for the elaborate Malay akad nikah and bersanding ceremonies , the luxurious Nyonya dowry presentation or the intricate Chinese tea ceremony. The latter ceremony involves the bride and groom serving little cups of tea to their family members and receiving ang pow or red packets containing money in return. An elaborate and sumptuous eight-course dinner reception follows.

 

The elegant Christian church celebration and the graceful Hindu temple wedding are other two available options. The Hindu temple wedding is a vibrant and colourful affair. It involves the bride and groom taking turns to lead each another around the ceremonial fire. The placement of the thali around the bride's neck by the groom seals the marriage. The bridal couple is then showered with yellow rice, a symbol of prosperity and fertility. If you are looking to be wed the traditional Iban, Bidayuh or Orang Ulu way, the Sarawak Cultural Village allows you the opportunity to do so.  Sabah's Monsopiad Cultural Village can cater for an elaborate Kadazan styled wedding involving their entire clan and yours.  Imagine an entire village heralding you and your bride-to-be with traditional fanfare and bearing witness to the sanctity of your union. Taking it one step further, some hotels offer special themed wedding celebrations - opt for a raucous pirate, primordial jungle or celebration of clowns theme.  How extravagant an event you want really depends on your dream of a wedding that is truly different.  Whatever your choice, your Malaysian styled wedding will be the one
