Malaysian Bridal Wear

Probably some of the most beautiful (and colourful) bridal outfits hail from Malaysia. These are just a selection of gorgeous photos of Malay brides on their special day (it helps that the wedding photographers are pretty awesome too!). So if you're looking for something modest and a little different from the standard gowns, these should provide some ideas. Can you pick a favourite?

The sixth one from the top - red with that sheer white veil coming down over a likewise red hijab - is jawdroppingly gorgeous. I just gasped when I saw it.

lovinggg all the outfits!!.. by the way, excuse me for being an ignorant, BUT.. I have a question for all my muslim stylish sisters, Muslim brides don't have to wear white?, because I grew up catholic so yeh, I don't know how that works for Muslim brides. I'm a new convert. Thanks in advance :)

The first and last are definitely my faves. I'm not a big fan of tiaras. I'd love to know who all the designers are...

yasmina said...

The white wedding gown thing seems to be something of a Western influence. I've seen wedding gowns of every color in Islamic bridal features.

I love all of 'em, some for their colors, some for their style but my favorite would have to be the last one...and I am so going to wear a tiara on my wedding day hehe

I went to malaysian wedding on saturday, masha Allah they do have beautiful dresses, I love the first picture, simply beautiful

Zara said...

Hi everyone, I Malaysian and would like to offer some answers, the malay wedding will typically be 3 events; the akad nikah (Islamic wedding ceremony) where almost all brides would wear cream, ivory or white, then the receptions ( one at the bride's and one at the groom's) where the outfits are normally colorful - just like the colorful outfits you see here.

With regards to designers, there are many but most simply get a good tailor, some lovely fabric and design the dresses themselves :)

Zara said...

Sorry...forgot to add (lol) During the receptions, there would normally be a 'bersanding' ceremony where the bride and groom will sit on an elaborately wedding dais where guests and relatives will give them blessings. This is not a Muslim ritual, just a cultural norm amongst the Malays. :)

The dresses worn during the 'bersanding' events are more bling and extremely elaborate as compared to the akad nikah. Most will be beaded, lace, embroidered silk etc in colors :)
