Chinese wedding traditions are observed slightly differently in Malaysia according to the dialect group. It all begins with the groom’s parents asking the bride’s parents for their daughter’s hand in marriage. This step is known as “tai chan” or the proposal. During the proposal, both parties choose a favorable date, figure out the details of betrothal gift, religious ceremony, wedding reception and so on.
Many of the traditional practices have been simplified for the convenience of modern couples today. Basically you need to prepare for: Betrothal Gift, Bride’s return gift, wedding biscuits, Bridal room installation, Hair dressing ritual, Pick the Bride (“Jip San Leong”), Tea ceremony.
