My sis' wedding: Part 2 (Majlis Berinai)

This post suppose to be the 3rd part but unfortunately, it is going to take quite long time to get the pics for the actual 2nd part which were taken during majlis akad nikah. Lets save those pictures for the 3rd part, shall we?

After maghrib prayer, the groom; dressed up in traditional royal costume, arrived together with his family. Most uncles & aunties from my family (bride's side) welcomed them with bunga rampai & air mawar. Then, the groom's crew were directed into the house.

Waiting in the house was the bride with face covered by the bridesmaid (me!) The bride's face will only reveal after all the guests sat down in front of the dais.

Next, the merenjis part. This was the most exciting part. Each family members (from both sides) needed to perform this merenjis no matter how old you were. The list of people whom should carry out the merenjis part are as follows (In the exact order):

1) Groom's parents to the bride
2) Groom's siblings to the bride
3) Groom's other family members to the bride
4) Groom to the bride
5) Bride to the groom
6) Bride's parents to the groom
7) Bride's other family members to the groom
8) Bride's siblings to the groom

Groom's dad to bride

Bride to groom

Bride's dad to groom

Bride's youngest brother to groom

Gifts from the couple..

To each person, after merenjis, they had to give some 'angpow' to the person they perform the merenjis. In return, they received some gifts from the host. When all the people aforementioned had fulfilled their task, then only the bride & groom sat together on the dais.

Some moments during pulut kuning ceremony

Last but not least,was the 'pulut kuning' cutting ceremony.. The event ended with some refreshment (dinner) prepared by the bride's family~
