An Egptian American couple weds in USA. I like the bridesmaids backdropped against the city-scape.

And some more examples of Egyptian bridesmaids in blue, white, and silver:






If you would like to help other sisters wear hijab and provide inspiration for their walimah/nikahs please send photos from your special day to bm_pixie@hotmail.com

Veiled Bride

I wish I could enlarge it better but the image gets so grainy. Not a fan personally though. Make sure to adapt you hijab to meet Islamic requirements: loose fitting, covers all but face and hands, not see-through, scarf covers chest and hair and neck.

Classic White

Beaded white hijab cap? Just pin on a traditional bridal veil.

Flower Hijab Wrap Style

*Please adapt your hijab style so that it meets the requirements of the Qu'ran: scarf covers the neck, hair, and chest*

Sorbet Bride

Pull on different layers of coloured tulle and match your eyeshadow and hijab accessories accordingly.

Eid finds on Ebay




EID TIP (TIME A MONTH BEFORE RAMADAN): search takchita, caftan, jalibiyia, and abaya (as well as hijab) to see what treasures you can score. Here are some of the finds I could have purchased when doing such a search.
