Tradition and religion are some of the most important aspects of our society. So while a bride looks out to dress appropriately for their traditional ceremony, they also want to be religiously cognisant.
Here are some Muslim brides and how they took care to look exceptional at their traditional ceremonies.
Incorporating aspects of the ceremony ceremony
This bride had beautiful decor that accentuated her look. Notably, she also had her escorts put on different veil colours which made her ceremony colourful.
She also used aeroplane hostess style uniforms for the entourage greeting the inlaws, making sure all the ladies had their veils on.
Colour Mix and Matching
If it is celebratory, why not be floral?
This bride shows the power of mixing and matching. She chooses a purple veil for her peachy gomesi. For her much cooler black and golden coloured gomesi, her veil is orange, making her pop more. Unlike those two outfits, her blue and golden gomesi is matched all the way so that her veil colour matches the sash and floral embroidery in the gomesi.
Changing headwrap styles
The bride here makes being Muslim the new cool with her headwrap styles.
Her busy golden gomesi is matched with a lighter colour veil with decorative flowers which favour the embroidery in the gomesi. For her golden yellow gomesi, the bride decorates her veil with a fascinator while she completely chooses a more casual wrapping style for her cake dress.
The changing dress style headwrap
While most brides go with a more traditional veiling style in gomesis, they tend to be more relaxed with the changing dresses. This bride looks amazing in her traditional maroon headwrap but also regal in her changing dress wrap, which she decorated with a tiara-like accessory.

Evident from these shots, culture and religious dressing styles can blend well, so for any soon-to-be bride, do not be afraid to dream and make your style work.
