Wedding hijab styles
For a wedding, hijabs can be ornate or simple. (Muslim woman image by DXfoto.com from Fotolia.com)

A hijab is both a head covering and a style of dress worn primarily in the Muslim community. For weddings, which are increasingly gender-mixed in the Muslim community, hijab can celebrate both the culture of the spouses and the event itself. One important feature of a hijab wedding style is that it is modest and covers the hair, neck, ears and chest.

Simple

A good, heavy silk can be used to create a long dress with sleeves that extend to the wrist. The skirt of the dress can flair away from the body in simple folds so that the bride and her attendants are not showing too much of their figures. Tiny buttons up the back of a dress are a nice, simple touch. Consider getting old-fashioned cloth buttons. To finish the hijab style, choose a lightweight silk and lace combination to wrap your hair in. You can wind it around your head and face to create an elegant head covering.

Decorative

Start with a simple dress. The skirt should be floor length and the neckline must be modest enough to touch the neck. Add simple touches to the outfit, like a jewelled broach at the neckline or waist. Consider wrapping a sash around your waist. Once your hair and head are wrapped, add a few clips or barrettes that match the sash and broach to your headscarf.

Ornate

Create a long, modest dress using lace or jewels in the fabric. Pearls on the hem of a skirt can catch the light and make for a beautiful hijab wedding gown or outfit. The entire outfit can be covered with lace and beading if a lady wants to be creative with her ensemble. Instead of using a simple piece of cloth as a headwrap, she should collect her hair in a bun with many pieces of overlapping lace. They should be dense enough that no hair or skin shows through them. Pulling the lace over her ears and back to cover her hair, she can secure the lace with a jewelled clip. Once that is done, a bride can add a veil of any colour to distinguish her from attendants and guests. Attaching it under the hijab on her head will allow it to trail down the back of her dress and float behind her as she walks toward her groom.
