(THE CULTURE AND CUSTOM OF THE PATANI COMMUNITY OF PENGKALAN HULU, PERAK: WEDDING)

The marriage custom is observed moderately and divided in many stages that are enquiring, asking the hand in marriage, marriage solemnisation and finally the sitting on the dais ceremony. On the wedding day the bride family holds a wedding feast at their house and invites relatives and friends.

The custom ends with the receiving the in-law ceremony, normally held on the third day after the marriage feast. This custom is held at the groom house with the bride spending the night there. The bride and her entourage are feasted with various dishes to signify the official relations of both the newly-wed as a husband and wife.
