How to wear hijab for your wedding?

Jhumar to bridal hijabs

A dress can look as stunning for the bride even if isn't completely covered by embroidery or zari work. You can use embroidery only on the top part of the dress while the skirt can be left plain. This way it doesn't become too heavy for the bride to handle. Take a look at this picture where the bride wears not so heavily embroidered dress with jewelry on the scarf to look more stylish and different.

Red bridal attire

Needless to say, the combination of these two powerful shades is simply alluring. A light-colored bridal hijab with fully embroidered red dupatta makes the bride look gorgeous.

If you want to wear a fancy dress and wear jewelry differently, try wearing a piece of head jewelry to give your hijab a cute and elegant look. You can also pair your shirt with a pair of palazzos instead of floor-length gown or straight pants. It will not only make you look unique but also makes it easy for you to handle the bridal dress. Match your dupatta with your dress or go for a contrasting shade but ensure that your hijab should match your dupatta as seen in the picture.

Contrast hijab color with the dress

Bright color and simple frocks with a different color hijab with minimal embroidery on the neckline looks cute and classy.

Make sure to wear a dress that extends past the knees and match it with a skirt rather than a floor-length gown.
