The ‘Do’s and ‘Don’t’s

Aug 30, 2016

The observance of traditional and cultural practices is an important part of Malaysian weddings. Couples who decide on a traditional Chinese wedding ceremony for instance, often hire a wedding chaperone to help them with such practices.

Indeed, a wedding chaperone who is well-versed in the ‘do’s and ‘don’t’s that have been inherent in Chinese weddings over time, can take much stress off the shoulders of the bride’s and groom’s families. Whilst adherence of tradition and culture is important, so too is etiquette, and a professional chaperone is someone who will be able to merge these components for a meaningful celebration that checks all the boxes so to speak.
