Tips when getting married in Malaysia

  • If you're going to get married in Malaysia and you invite many guests, make it a multi-day wedding.
  • When you are getting married in Malaysia, keep in mind your passport will have to be valid for at least 6 more months when you are back.
  • Malaysia has fine visa arrangements for most western countries. Check beforehand which visa requirements apply.
  • If you are thinking of getting married in Malaysia make sure you take the seasonal monsoon into account. At the eastcoast of the peninsula there is very strong monsoon between November and March. The beautiful islands in this area are usually badly affected by rainstorms and you would do better to avoid them. Islands like Langkawi, Penang and Pangkor can be visited throughout the year, so these are the best places to organize a romantic beach wedding.
  • The premier resort to get married at is Pangkor Laut Resort. The resort is located at only 3 hours from Kuala Lumpur. It is known as the best resort for weddings and has been listed as one of the best resorts in the world at numerous surveys. If you are looking for ultimate luxury, go visit Pangkor Laut.
  • Most upscale resorts on Penang Island are able to organise a wonderful dinner party, in some cases even on a part of their private beach. Lone Pine hotel is a great choice in Batu Ferringhi; it's a beautiful boutique hotel that is perfect for a wedding.
  • 9 out of 10 times, a wedding will turn out to be more expensive than planned. When you keep this fact in mind, and reserve some money for extra costs, you can avoid exceeding your wedding budget.
  • You only go on a honeymoon once, so don't cut down the costs for this. Not money-wise, and certainly not time-wise. Save as many days off as possible, to ensure you can enjoy your honeymoon as long as possible. You can also ask for a contribution for the honeymoon as a wedding gift.
  • Try to follow up your wedding with a honeymoon. If you wait too long, your honeymoon may feel like a regular holiday.
  • Despite the hustle and preparations, do not forget to enjoy your wedding. It is your moment, don't let it slip away. Outsource as much as possible. Prepare beforehand what's possible, so that you don't need to worry about things during your wedding and can relax and enjoy.
  • When you book a holiday as bride and groom, always make it clear you are going on a honeymoon. A bride and groom will often get more service than a 'normal couple'. It could very well be that you'll receive extra attention in the airplane, get a free upgrade to a better room, or receive a bottle of champagne on arrival at the hotel.
  • Make sure to include choosing and booking the honeymoon into your planning for the marriage, so that all this will have been dealt with BEFORE getting married, so you won't have to worry about that anymore. Pick a destination you both really want to go to, and start looking for offers well ahead of time.
  • Take lots of pictures of the preparations of the marriage. From fitting the clothes until checking the locations and the test drive with the wedding car. Because you won't be arranging everything together, you'll still have those things to look back to later, together. You can also get an album made out of these pictures, along with the album of your photographer, possibly with pictures from your guests and of course the honeymoon!
  • Plan some new experiences for the two of you into your honeymoon. You will then be able to think back often to those special moments together. The unique shared experience will make your marriage stronger.
