Asian Bridal Hijab

One reader recently requested ideas for wearing hijab during her wedding in Pakistan. I've had these photos saved for ages now, and they should provide some inspiration. The easiest option when it comes to the headcovering aspect is to wear a plain square or one-piece hijab in a matching colour to the outfit, and pinning the decorative head-piece on top. My favourite of all these has to be the first photo. I love the rich colour and embroidery:

Oh yes, these fashions were like 10 years back. Nowadays, we in Malaysia tried combining different fashion styles for weddings. The materials used in one of these pictures is called the SONGKET, its a traditional wear. I'm not sure of the first picture (don't think its from Malaysia), but others feature our Malaysian Artist - Sasha Saidin, also a singer.

I remembered my wedding, i had all white for myself and husband, did not want anything too fancy, just simple, but elegant.

Maybe Hijab Style would want to feature reader's wedding pictures? :) just a suggestion..

Except for the first picture, the rest of the bridal wear is actually from Inai Bridal if I'm not wrong. Inai Bridal is a bridal service/company in Singapore; the model is Sasha, a malaysian artiste. Anyway, if anyone's interested to know, the style and bridalwear featured is mostly the Malay traditional kebaya and songket (a type of fabric).

I was a hijabi bride in Pakistan in dec 07. It took me months to find a salon that would know how to set the hijab in a way that it didn't look awkward.

Please ask your reader to get in touch with me or find me on facebook. I have pictures that she can get an idea from.

And can also refer her to the place I got ready from.

It's possible to look gorgeous on your wedding and observe hijab.

Salaams Jana,

I think there are a lot of readers that have pictures of hijabi brides. Could you maybe get some of those pictures and post them on your blog.

I think your blog is awesome and love the styles.
