Weddings Now Allowed From October 9 Onwards 

Wedding ceremonies in Christian and Hindu places of worship will be permitted starting Saturday (Oct 9) as part of incremental relaxations to the National Recovery Plan’s standard operating procedures (SOP), according to Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein.

The relaxations to the SOPs, according to the Senior Minister, were determined during a meeting of the Special Committee on Covid-19 Pandemic Management on Wednesday (Oct 6).

“The ‘Thaali-tying’ ceremony at Hindu temples and church weddings for Christians will now be allowed during the NRP.”

“The National Unity Ministry will inform Hindu and Christian religious associations of the SOPs that need to be complied with,” according to Hishammuddin.

This surely brings good news to the struggling wedding industry, with the Association of Wedding Professionals, Leticia Hsu, stating that since the first lockdown, the sector had already been “shivering”.

Couples who have postponed their weddings can now resume the planning, and the wedding industry can hopefully recover from the financial hit from MCO 1, 2 and 3.

Other relaxations to the SOPS included allowing wholesale markets to operate in Phase 2 and Phase 3 areas, subject to stringent restrictions established by local authorities.

This involves making it a compulsory requirement for full vaccination of workers.

The meeting also approved the conditional operation of public auctions in the pawnshop sector, which is registered with the Housing and Local Government Ministry.
