Because the best ideas come from women who’ve really done it…

Call us hopeless romantics, but we love weddings. When else in life do you get to dress up that much?

In that spirit, we’ve rounded up seven gorgeous real-life hijabi brides who were kind enough to share images from their big days on Instagram. Getting married? Fantastic, these will serve as a vision board. Nowhere near the aisle? Us too. Let’s just enjoy the prettiness.

After all, weddings are for everyone, regardless of your religion or who you’re marrying.

Hijab style hits the catwalk at New York Fashion Week

Dove-grey perfection

This Michael Cinco design is an absolute dream. We love the colour, the embroidery, and the gentle draping of her hijab. So classic yet such a gorgeous point of difference. Five stars.

True romance

How’s this for the look of love? Muslim vlogger Manal, who lives in Canada, got married earlier this year, and we think she looked stunning. Love the sheer panels on the sleeves.

Always coordinate

One idea we’re filing away? Match your eye makeup to your flowers. This bride’s plummy eye look and bouquet set off her cappucino gown and hijab beautifully.

Get the gals involved

Mabrouk to the bride #repost @hijab_house #thehijabbride #muslimfashion #beautifulbride #muslimfashion #modestfashion

What a stunning bridal party. That soft taupe-y pink works perfectly with the bride’s look.

In the swing of things

An absolute fairytale, this one. And how good is that pale blue against her dress?

Soft and elegant
