Malay Marriage Tradition

In Malaysia, we have many traditions from different culture. In Malays, when someone got married, there will always be the same of ceremony where the guys will wore 'Baju Melayu', Keris, Tanjak and same goes to the girls wore 'Baju Kurung', Tudung and so on. This is because of the tradition that has been in Malays blood since hundred years ago and it is a compulsory for those who wanted to get married apply to this tradiotion. The traditions in Malays marriage is still use by the newly weds nowadays and of course some of differences made according to changes era. This is some of the picture that has been taken by my cousin. Enjoy =) .

A bridegroom arrived at the bride house followed by family members. The guy who is next to the bridegroom is the groomsmen. Usually the bridegroom selects his closest friends and/or relatives to serve as a groomsmen.

These are a gift or also known as 'Hantaran' in Malay from the bride and bridegroom to each other. It can be anything and of course its like a tradition to give a 'hantaran'.

(expensive ring =D )

In Muslim's, its enforced on having 'Akad Nikah' before the married couple can be anounce as a husband and wife because its the main factor on getting married in Muslim's. The ring is the symbol of marriage for the bride and same goes to the bridegroom. After finishing the 'akad nikah' ceremony, we will now can pronounce them, husband and wife =) .
