Since famous songstress Datuk Siti Nurhaliza started the trend of fully covered hair during the solemnization process,many of other celebrity has follow her footstep.Before her times,many bride's doesnt really care much about covering their hair properly,with many just donned a sheer veil.Properly worn hijab is essential especially if the nikah is held in a masjid.
Most of the new bride and groom goes white on their nikah day(as cliche as it is-to symbolise a pure new beginning),and goes to their choosen theme colour for another reception for family and friends.The dress that they wear usually are traditional inspired dress with a modern twist.From what i observe,most of them opted for a modern long kebaya with imported european luxury fabrics such as french lace,silk,chiffon,satin silk and beads and stones.
Here's some picture of how basically malay girls look like on their nikah day.Eventhough i'm showing dazzling celebrity picture's,but more or less you can get the idea of what the hijabi here is wearing on their Nikah day.I hope these picture can give you some inspiration ....
Siti Nurhaliza.Songstress.I'm sort of thinking that her dress is too "heavy",too much detaling.She should tone down all those bling,maybe take away her giant tiara,perhaps?Or change her crystal flower into a more natural ones?

This picture down is not a celebrity picture.Not forgetting the tradition,this bride opt for songket fabric,made into traditional baju kurung pahang(baju kurung with waist cut) .No glittery blings here.I also like her round and large embroided veil.It looks so appropriate.Overall,she really look stand out minus the bling.
