South East Asian Wedding Customs
In Filipino weddings the groom usually wears the Barong Tagalog though nowadays the wealthy prefer to wear something like a tuxedo. Weddings held within the same year by two siblings, usually sisters, called Sukob are seen as bad luck and are frowned upon.
Some hold it that the wedding rings dropping to the ground is a portent of bad luck (this is usually said to the ring bearer to ensure that the child is careful in handling the rings).
Money, in the form of paper bills, is often pinned to the groom and to the brides dress during the first dance. A Malay wedding ceremony is spread out over two days, beginning with the akad nikah ceremony on the first day.
The groom firstly signs the marriage contract on the fist day and then provides the bride with amas kahwin (dowry). After that, their hands are dyed with henna during the berinai besar ceremony.
On the second day, the bride is with her family and friends with musicians and bunga manggar or palm blossom carriers at the bride’s house. They are greeted with sprinkling of yellow rice and scented water at the house.
The bride family will be the one who proposes to the groom, as a matrilineal society. This is called the tradition of maminang.
