10 Unique Airbnbs for weddings in and around Malaysia

A recent study by the UK Office of National Statistics found that the true key to happiness is a steady marriage, ranking only below good health. According to the research, life satisfaction for married people is 9.9 per cent higher than widows and widowers, and 8.8 per cent higher than the divorced or separated ones. When people feel secure and loved, they tend to feel way better about life. Generally, the foundation of reliable love is based on the promise that someone will stick around regardless of what happens. “Love is all that I can give to you, love is more than just a game for two”. Yes, that’s Nat King Cole and isn’t love just wonderful?

From a Utopian perspective, love and marriage goes hand in hand, and the zeitgeist of 2019 has seen a change in attitudes when it comes to the elements of marriage. And so, when it comes to planning a wedding, ranging from wedding venues/destinations to themes, we are now officially living in a diaspora of creativity and manifestation—and that’s simply wonderful!
