This ceremony is performed separately on both the groom and the bride. Usually it is done at night on a date mutually agreed by both sides. Normally it is done on the bride first, except when the groom is the crown prince or of royal parentage then it is done on him first.

On the day before the ceremony, there would be an exchange of gifts between both families. The groom would send over to the bride 4 sticks of candles powder, perfumes and scents, cosmetics, ornaments, piece of Kain Jong Sarat, a set of white dress inlaid with golden thread, and other similarly valuables gifts. The bride would in return send over to the groom perfumes, scents, powders and a complete set of full Malat dress. These items would be placed in brass receptacles lined with lace, decorated and covered, carried by maids wearing full ceremonial dress and led by several chosen ladies of rank.

At the appointed time the bride is led out onto the bridal dais, and once seated certain close relatives of the bride and other chosen personage, including the religious ulamak, would perform the ceremony of applying the powder paste to the hand of the bride. There are seven colours of powder paste made. These are put on silver or crystal plates placed on brass tray which is laced and decorated. The tray would be positioned near the bridal dais, before the ceremony. In this ceremony only a small portion of the seven coloured paste is touched by the designated personage performing it who then place them onto the hand of the bride.

Once all the designated personages have completed the ceremony, the bride is then led down from the bridal dais and is taken to a special place in the istana or the house, to the undergo the ceremony of Bersiram which completes the ceremony of Berbedak Diraja. The manner and form of this Bersiram ceremony is similar to the ceremony of Bersiram after the ceremony of Berbedak Lulutan.

The Alat Kebesaran Diraja and the Alat Perhiasan accompanying the ceremony depend on the social standing of the family hosting the ceremony.

Usually the ceremony for the groom would begin immediately after the ceremony of Berbedak Diraja for the bride is completed. In this ceremony, the bride and groom would be fully dressed in customary traditional Malay attire and fully adorned with traditional ornaments.
