What most best-est things about malay wedding is the hantaran. The hantaran  is a complete set of gift from both side. In a simplest way, our wedding required both groom and bride to exchange gift. The gift set must be in an odd numbers and the bride must send a higher number of gifts than the groom.

The hantaran set must be in either of these combination: 3 vs. 5, 5 vs. 7, 7 vs. 9, 9 vs. 11, 11 vs. 13 and so on. Our hantaran set is 11 vs. 13 but eventually the set's becoming to 13 vs. 13 when some people sponsored the gift. Well, we can't say no when people has already bought something for us right?

The hantaran need to be decorated base on both side wedding theme. My hantaran theme is purple whereby hantaran from my husband is maroon. Please be reminded that hantaran is not a religious but only a cultural requirement. :)
