The pre-wedding meeting between the bride's and the groom's parents will determine the dowry that is to be given to the bride as well as the date of the solemnization. This may be as early as a year before the wedding itself so that arrangements could be made in advance. Often the wedding is held on one convenient weekend so as to accommodate relatives who live far away and to reduce costs.
The berinai (henna application) ceremony is held prior to the wedding. The bride's palms and feet are 'decorated' with the dye from the henna leaves. Sometimes this is followed by the tukar pakaian (costume changes) and the bride and, less often, the groom will don different clothes for photography. The pelamin (raised dais) will be beautifully decorated for the purpose.
Wedding is a contract, and the akad nikah effectively forges the union. The solmnization is normally presided by a kadhi, a religious official of the Syariat Court. In olden days, it was customary for the bride's biological father to perform this function.
The akad nikah ceremony is in effect a verbal contract between the bride's father or his representative (in this case the kadhi) and the groom. A small sum of money called the mas kahwin (in Singapore, it is S$22.50) seals the contract. The dialogue is as follows, and must be articulated clearly as to be ehard by three witnesses:
Kadhi: I marry thee to (so-and-so) with the mas kahwin of S$22.50
Groom: I accept this wedding with (so-and-so) with the mas kahwin of S$22.50
The simplicity of this ritual belies the tremendous responsibilities of the groom to care for his bride, and this is reinforced in a brief lecture on wedding and its responsibilities delivered later by the kadhi. The groom is also reminded that, should he fail to provide both spiritual and physical sustenance for his wife, the wedding may be dissolved if a complaint is made to the Syariat Court.
One needs to distinguish the mas kahwin and the...

Ever since ancient times, the most delightful moments in one’s life come with success in marriage and birth of son.

According to Wang (1998), he explains a man side has the opportunities to choose what kind of a woman to be his wife or mother of his children. First, a man finds a woman to marry who has never dated with anyone before. Second, a man meets woman’s parents to engage with her. Additionally some of marriages are blind because marriage is not built up from a love but it was a family connection. Marriage is being arranged between two families: pride and groom do not know each other. Without asking from their parents, many women were forced to marry with the men they never knew before. Lastly, Wang mentions that men are looking for a “value women”...
A wedding is the ceremony in which two people are united in marriage or a similar institution. Wedding traditions and customs vary greatly between cultures, ethnic groups, religions, countries, and social classes. Most wedding ceremonies involve an exchange of wedding vows by the couple, presentation of a gift (offering, ring(s), symbolic item, flowers, money), and a public proclamation of marriage by an authority figure or leader. Special wedding garments are often worn, and the ceremony is sometimes followed by a wedding reception. Music, poetry, prayers or readings from religious texts or literature are also commonly incorporated into the ceremony.
A number of cultures have adopted the traditional Western custom of the white wedding, in which a bride wears a white wedding dress and veil. This tradition was popularized through the wedding of Queen Victoria. Some say Victoria's choice of a white gown may have simply been a sign of extravagance, but may have also been influenced by the values she held which emphasized sexual purity. Within the modern 'white wedding' tradition, a white dress and veil are unusual choices for a woman's second or subsequent wedding. The notion that a white gown might symbolize sexual purity has been long abandoned, and is criticized by etiquette writers like...

...marriage and the actual wedding process, however; in places such as Pakistan- a wedding symbolizes much more for the Indian culture. Indian weddings are known for their extremely elaborate ceremonies- including before and after the “big day”, and their opulent celebrations (Husain, 120).
In Indian culture, marriage symbolizes not just the sacred union of two individuals, but of the coming together of two families and extended families. (Serhan, 24) As with any other marriage process the first step is the engagement. (Husain, 119). Traditionally the engagement was set up between the bride and groom’s parents as an arranged marriage, but recently arranged marriages have become practically extinct (Gullapalli). In the 21th century it is custom that the parents of the groom accompany their prospective daughter-in-laws’ home to meet with her and her parents. If the young woman’s parents agree to the proposal, the two are then bound for marriage. (Serhan, 27) There is an actual engagement ritual where gold rings are exchanged between the soon-to-be bride and groom called Mangni (Gullapalli).
During the Mangni the two families meet to make the official plans of the wedding-such as the potential date and time of the wedding based on the two horoscopes of the bride and the groom. The couple is then given blessings by the elders of the family, and showered with beautiful gifts- including jewelry and...
...Indian Wedding VS American Wedding
Every country and every religion have their own traditions and its help to differentiate each other. Even though wedding ceremony has the same meaning in every culture, the way of celebration is different. An Indian marriage is essentially different from a typical American wedding. Indian wedding is about the association of family members follow the traditions, functions, customs while traditional American Wedding is about Bridal shower, Bridal Party, The veil, kissing the bride, the groom's cake and the honeymoon.
Indian marriages start with searching the bride or groom as a part of arranged marriage. It is considered to be the most acceptable form of marriage till date in most of the communities in India. Both of families fully involved in searching the bride or the groom. I still remember that day when I had first meeting with my husband in presence of my family members at my house. I had talk with him for two hours and then I discussed with my parents. Then my parents had conversation with his family. When the both families were agreed, they fixed the date for marriage. In contrast in the US, arranged marriage is a retard thing to do and is very uncommon. Bride and groom already knew to each other from long time. They have full power to make a decision for marriage.
In India wedding is the big and three to five days...
