Both families have agreed that the two of you are ready to get hitched. Both families get along. What next? Different religions and cultures have different requirements. As long as you acknowldege this fact, there's no real reason for family wars to occur. To make your search on procedures easier, just click below:
It is safe to say that once all the paperwork is done, the fun begins...or does it? Let's just say that there is more work involved if you come from different religious backgrounds and cultures.
For example, if you're a Buddhist marrying a Christian, your families might want two types of ceremonies- one in a temple and one in a church. Or if you're a Malay getting married to a Chinese, there'll be two types of cultures involved- one involving perhaps Malay cultural dances and Bunga Manggar and kompang while the other involves the "bullying" of the groom as he steps into the bride's family home and perhaps a tea ceremony later. Malaysians generally solve these differences by having two separate receptions for the two families. This way everybody goes home happy and not offended.
The most important thing is to adapt and adapt some more! Remember, love is what brought you together in the first place so remember how much you love each other and other things won't matter as much.
Being in such a colourful society really makes Malaysian weddings very interesting. The current trend though is the white wedding. Here the wedding is kept simple and straight to the point with the Walk In, followed by the parents or best friend's speech, lunch or dinner, slideshow, cake cutting and photography session. Some might opt for an after-wedding party and perhaps fireworks for those who don't mind spending a little more.
