Because it doesn't often come up in the topic of my blog, and because for the most part, it's personal, I don't often discuss my faith here. But as a muslim, Hijab is a huge part of the way I dress, and I spend a lot of time researching different ideas for how to wear it uniquely and relevant to my modern, urban lifestyle. Naturally, this post is one I've wanted to write for a long while.
I opted to have a male-female segregated setting for my wedding, because I didn't want to wear hijab. Many brides choose to have a mixed wedding, however, for various reasons, and the need to find a modest yet becoming look is important. Everyone has a standard that they adhere to in their everday lives when it comes to hijab, and you should try your best for your own sake, to keep it the same on your wedding day. Don't let anyone judge your decisions, or make you second-guess yourself. As long as you and your husband (and I stress, your husband) are comfortable with the degree to which you have covered yourself, and you keep within the limits of modesty, you should be fine Here are some suggested links:
an excellent forum thread on paklinks with plenty of pictures and suggestions from members of the forum. Just remember a lot of the pictures belong to members and are personal property; do not reblog without permission!
"Carina Tops" Ordinarily, I find these a little tight, but under a looser lengha kurta, they are perfect because they are seamless and sit really well against the skin so they don't bunch up around your neck and arms.
Keep in mind that the lengha was originally designed with modesty in mind, and there are options out there for you. As always, any suggestions you can contribute to help hijab-wearing brides are welcome in the comments!
