Malay Wedding

Mid year school break has just ended here in Malaysia. During that time many Malaysian took the opportunity to hold a wedding ceremony.  In this post, Zuikoholics members would like to share the colors and moments of wedding ceremonies celeberated by Malay community, the majority citizen of Malaysia.

The Malay traditional wedding is a very elaborated and cultural event which took months of preparation and will be celebrated  with much fanfare. While the Malay wedding involves variety of traditions and practices which must be adhered to, but sometimes the traditions celebrated are against the Islamic practices, in which some of the traditions are discarded nowadays.

There are generally two main parts in a Malay wedding ceremony namely the “Akad Nikah” which means tying the knot between two couple into the legal and religious part or simply the matrimonial ceremony; while secondly the family celebration called  ‘Bersanding’ – the grand affair whereby the couple were treated as  ‘Raja Sehari’; the King and Queen for a day.
