Kuala Lumpur Wedding Tips

Formed in 1857, Kuala Lumpur means "muddy confluence". It is the national capital and the most populous global city, a perfect representation of the harmonious multi-racial Malaysia. From the unmistakable outline of the Petronas Twin Towers to the colossal standing Buddha image found outside Batu Caves, Kuala Lumpur or KL attractions comprise so much more for those who want to look deeper into this fascinating city. The colourful Petaling Street market in Chinatown and the famous Sultan Abdul Samad Building in the city’s colonial quarter provides the cultural backdrop for a memorable wedding moment. If one is looking to escape the heat of the cities in Malaysia, couples will find a high-altitude hill resort at Genting Highlands (approximately a one hour drive from KL city), complete with hotels and a theme park on a mountain peak above the rainforest. Temperatures there range from 15 degrees Celsius to 24 degrees Celsius throughout the year and is an ideal cool destination for a breathtakingly beautiful baroque style wedding venue.


In a Malay wedding, food is served buffet style and rice is essential. A wide variety of rice dishes are served up to the host's preference:
  • Nasi Briyani (Briyani Rice)
  • Nasi Tomato (Tomato Rice)
  • Nasi Jagung (Sweet Corn Rice)
  • Nasi Bukhari (Arabian Fragrant Rice)
  • Nasi Minyak (Ghee/Butter Rice)
  • Nasi Putih (Jasmine Rice)
Malaysian wedding banquets do not normally contain pork, due to their Islamic nature, but the food is definitely heavily centred on meat and their renowned seafood. Beef rendang is a must have in every Malay wedding. If you or your partner are vegetarian or do not have a liking towards meat, be sure to plan well ahead and make arrangements for a more vegetable-oriented feast!
