Weddings transform the bride and groom into wife and husband. They involve substantial investment in beautification and adornment. The multiculturalism of Penang means that weddings are celebrated in different ways by members of different ethnic groups, religions, and cultural traditions. This is taken into account by wedding planners and organisers who may specialise in just one kind of wedding or may be set up to offer different varieties of wedding celebration. This can involve delicate negotiations between the families resulting in compromises and variations to the conventional format – especially if the bride and groom are from different ethnic backgrounds or different religions.
