halal beer and halal sausage got lah ....
about conversion, well, every time I sit through a mass, and when the Catholic priest reminds the flock about the legality of both being catholics and not ... I smile
and once, the said priest admittd times are changing and all are welcome, converted or not .... and wamly once asked what's the plan for baptism of the small one (whose parents aren't legally married in the eyes of the Catholic church )
and I casually once said to him, I'd rather join the Anglican church who aren't so strict , as married men / women there can be doing services.... he could only smile ....

I can list a few RC churches here who will explicitly refuse to baptize unless you produce the confirmation of both parents and God parents ...
while a few arent so strict ....
just go to the RC church which is just all-embracing ...
including one that accepted me as a God Father ... (no, not the Mafia one .... )

Now if you bitch about a Malaysian wedding...
Malaysian refers to nationality of country Malaysia, not ethnicity of the Malays.
Ma·lay [mey-ley, muh-ley]
1. of, pertaining to, or characteristic of a racially intermixed, generally short-statured people who are the dominant population of the Malay Peninsula and adjacent islands.
2. of or pertaining to the language or culture of these people. noun
3. a member of the Malay people.
4. an Austronesian language of Malaysia and Singapore, differing from Indonesian only in orthography.
Ma·lay·sian [muh-ley-zhuhn, -shuhn]
1. a native or inhabitant of Malaysia.
2. Malay (adjective)
3. of, pertaining to, or characteristic of Malaysia or its inhabitants.
So a Malay is a generally 'short-statured' (hehehe) person of the Malay peninsular (and islands).
But a Malay is also a native or inhabitant, of what ever ethnicity, of Malaysia.
Therefore is a wedding between non-Malay Malaysians still a Malay wedding?
I just saw this.
Based on what you posted, my statement still stands, except for note 2 and 3 for Malaysian.
