Muslim Brides Around The World
The crux and soul of a Muslim wedding remains same throughout the world. However, the small ceremonies and their execution change from region to region. How a Muslim wedding looks depends on whether the family comes from Middle East, North India, South India or South East Asia. This one determines the look of the as well. However, you would be surprised to know that even the bride’s get-up is heavily influenced by part of the world they are coming from!
The Malaysian bride wears an all-white attire which has a flow of a gown but complete with a hijab and unlike western gowns it covers the entire body of the bride. Wearing white is a practice amongst Turkish, Nigerian and Egyptian brides also. However, in Nigeria the hijab consists of their typical African head gear and a veil that is part of the dress. In a complete contrast with these brides are Indian, Middle Eastern and Omani Muslim brides.
Here, wearing rich colours is considered auspicious and therefore the bride usually adorns heavy jewellery and clothes. Red, green, pink and oranges make for the preferred colour for the dress. In Indian Muslim Bride’s attire, use of golden zari and intricate embroidery is common. Mang teeka, a piece of jewellery that is worn on the middle partition of hairline and extends from back of the head to upper forehead is a given when it comes to the Indian Muslim bride. The Omani and Middle Eastern Muslim brides also wear jewellery on forehead and head akin to Mang tika but the way it is worn and looks is very different from the Indian one.
Even though the brides from all these regions look different but there are basic rules that are followed in every bride’s dressing. All the brides have their head covered and the designs of the dresses are conservative but definitely high on style!
