Abstract

Modernisation has changed the actions and thinking of human society, as people today are rushing about trying to find time to fulfil their needs and aspirations. This attitude also affects the beliefs and cultural practices in a society, including those reflected in Malay customs. Malay society has a rich system of customs and beliefs, especially those pertaining to everyday life, including the various stages and events associated with weddings. This chapter provides an overview of the customs associated with Malay weddings in Brunei and the symbolism behind the ceremonies, and it discusses how the customs are undergoing change in the modern world.
