When it comes to weddings and brides, each culture has a different tradition. In western countries, for example, people typically wear traditional white/ivory wedding dresses in different styles. In India,brides wear pink or red wedding dresses.  Brides who are Catholic typically wear modest wedding dresses.The same thing goes for certain Jewish brides. As for the Muslim brides, they wear modest wedding dresses with head cover-ups called hijabs.

Having said that, many Hijab brides in the US find difficulty in finding the perfect Hijab Wedding Dress or the perfect Modest Wedding dress for their big day. While many brides are usually capable of finding modest wedding dress, they get caught in the problem of having to add lace or material to cover up the neck for example, extra material to cover up the shoulders or the back neckline.  Adapting a wedding dress to their preferences is not an easy task. Even if it gets amended, it is usually clear that extra work has done to the gown and it often does not look like one blended piece. This is why at Brides & Tailor, we have made it our mission to cater to brides of all backgrounds to make sure that their gown is done to their liking from the time we start designing it from scratch.

 Hijab wedding gowns are actually not as limited or even limiting as one might think. There are so many ways you can have your perfect bridal hijab wedding dress without compromising your taste or veil.

In this blog, we will showcase 4 of our gorgeous Hijab Wedding Dresses and the process that we follow in creating your perfect modest wedding dress or the perfect Hijab Wedding Dress. We will show you how easy it is to order your custom hijab wedding dress from the comfort of your home! We will also include some photos from our brides’ wedding day so you can see how the final product looked like when they wore it! Are you ready? Let’s begin! 🙂

 

1- Hijab Wedding Dress number 1 ( Mermaid Hijab Wedding Dress)

This Hijab Wedding Dress was created for our Michigander bride Haneen. Haneen searched for a mermaid Hijab Wedding Dress for months, and after getting tired from hopping to a bridal boutique to another, she got in contact with us and we were all set to help! Since she wanted several Wedding Dress ideas based on a variety of photos, we decided to draw a sketch for her to be able to visualize how the end result would be like! Haneen wanted a mermaid gown with a long bodice to create a beautiful proportional slimming. effect. She also loves beadings, so we created the sketch to showcase beading and pearls on it, and the most important part she wanted, was having a removable train which can be easily removed/put on for a royal bridal entrance. One of the most unique things about her wedding dress’s skirt is that she wanted a Bling effect in it. This is what she eventually got:) This is how her initial sketches looked like before we began with her gown :

After getting Haneen’s Body measurements using our measurements sheet, work started on her dress. First, Brides & Tailor sent her a variety of lace patterns that would suit her gown. We then used what she pick to create the applique pattern, and shared it with her so she could stay updated with the process from start to finish! This was how gorgeous the dress looked like when it finished! Seeing the bride super happy is always the best gift!

Needless to say, the bride looked even more gorgeous on her wedding day! We created her wedding veil with the same lace of the dress so it can match its style, and everyone on her Wedding Day just fell in love with her look! Here some photos!

 

 

 

 

How gorgeous did she look like? I’m in love with her overall look!

2-Hijab Wedding Dress # 2 ( Ballgown Hijab Wedding Dress)

Our second Hijab Wedding Dress Style here is a Ballgown Style. It was also created for one of our most awesome brides, Hawraa, who also wanted something specific based on several inspirational photos she had. Brides & Tailor got into work and started it off with a lovely sketch!

 

 

 

After our bride approved the sketch, she picked her lace pattern and work began! This is the end result:

 

 

 

 

 

Hawraa’s Wedding was supposed to take place this March, but unfortunately had to be postponed due to Covid-19. Needless to say, I am pretty sure she will look more than gorgeous on her wedding day!

 

3-Hijab Wedding Dress 3 ( Ballgown Wedding Dress with lace and no bling )

One of the most beautiful wedding dresses we have also created in the past few months is this lovely Ballgown Hijab Wedding Dress. It was created for our Hijabi Bride Razan from Ohio, and she stressed out the importance of having something simple and elegant at the same time. Therefore, we created her wedding dress with lace but without any bling. The lace was gorgeous enough to make her dress a showstopper! Take a look:

 


 

This is how stunning she looked on her Wedding Day:

4- Multi-colored Hijab Wedding Dress ( Ballgown Style with non-traditional colors)

 

Our 4th gown in the selection today is a beautiful two-toned dress that we have created for our North Carolina bride, Raya. Raya is gorgeous,inside-out! We just cannot wait for her to celebrate her Wedding day to show you how Royal she will look like! She wanted a color different than ivory/white for her dress, so we created her own in Champagne, adding some Bling on the lace and made it with a High Collar since this is something she loves!

 

 

We hope this round up of 4 of our most beautiful Hijab Wedding Dresses will be very helpful to see how gorgeous Hijab Wedding Dresses can be if they are created with the Hijabi Bride in mind. Do you know a bride-to-be who wears the Hijab, and is unable to find her perfect Wedding Dress? Tell her about Brides & Tailor. You will truly make her day!:)

No matter where you live in the US or Worldwide, we will be working with you one-to-one to make sure this will be an experience you will cherish forever! You can send us any inspirational photos, and we will work with you to bring your vision into life!

Leap Year comes but once every four years. And Leap Day, February 29, is not a national holiday anywhere. But that doesn’t stop the special day from being a highly coveted date for marrying couples to set their weddings on! This is exactly what Erin and Jamel decided to do- Having a Wedding as unique and special as their relationship!

Their Wedding took place at the beautiful Norfolk Botanical Garden in Virginia on a magical beautiful day! What I truly loved about Erin’s Wedding Day photos were the tons of smiles that were clearly shown on everyone’s face! Everyone had such an amazing time, and this is exactly what is so touching about weddings.It truly reflects the happiness and love all around!

Now let us talk about Erin’s Custom Wedding Dress! Erin had a 3-in-1 custom wedding dress designed by Brides & Tailor! It has a short skirt ( Which we won’t show you now 🙂 ), a long overlay ballgown skirt that can be easily worn above it , a removable belt and a removable jacket. Best part yet? Her custom wedding dress had pockets! Pockets are so trendy for 2020/2021, and we will be providing all brides with the option of adding pockets to all of their wedding gowns.So so classy!

Erin’s makeup was so simple and elegant, with beautiful curls that reflected true elegance!

The groom’s tux also reflected elegance and what I loved the most was the first “look” . I won’t give any more details. I will let the pictures speak on their own:)

Who could’ve thought that our planned Styled Shoot was indeed STILL going to take place despite the Snow Storm Advisory Warning in Michigan in January 2020?  This Styled Shoot was published on Contemporary Weddings Magazine, and I’m so glad to finally be able to share some of the photos from this magical day on our website!

We all drove in the Snow Blizzard and Weather Advisory on January 18th,2020 because we had this beautiful Concept in mind. We wanted to show potential brides how gorgeous it is to have Winter-themed photos! Michigan is known for its long winter months and snowy days, but we’re not going to just wait for Spring and Summer to have a shoot. A Bride is beautiful in any season!:)

The colors for the shoot were a mix of Blue, Gold, Burgundy and White. They just mixed up so beautifully and contrasted with the snow all around.

Brides & Tailor created a special custom faux fur piece in Burgundy to match the overall theme and to contrast beautifully with the snow and the wedding dress. The Custom Wedding Dress by Brides & Tailor  was a very simple yet elegant gown. It features lace on the bodice, intricate lace detailing at the back, and a flowy soft tulle skirt for the skirt. We are always trying to showcase different gown styles that a variety of brides would love! Needless to say, the bride looked awesome in it!

One of my favorite parts about this shoot were the 2 main characters – The bride and the Groom 🙂 Rebecca and Beau are husband and wife, and we cannot deny that the chemistry between those 2 was just AMAZING. They seriously made the photographer’s and the videographer’s work effortless! They were goofy, spontaneous and full of life!

For the table, a navy velvet tablecloth was used, and beautiful golf flatware, gold chargers and candle holders were used. The chairs also had golden accents and it was the perfect addition.  Our planners Britt and Megan created the perfect setup and added some candles  in just a few minutes. Planners really do magic:) The florist created beautiful pops of burgundy color floral work mixed with greenery,white and earthy colors. The flowers were out of this world! One of the things I also loved the most was the beautiful sofa which was perfect to add some warmth and coziness to the outside cold. The small vintage table used for the cake and the flowers was also so cute! Did you know that it was pre-purposed from a sewing machine? It looked absolutely gorgeous with the setting! 🙂

The cake was also an outstanding part of the shoot. Our awesome cake artist Mackenzie created an edible cake which has beautifully-blended navy blue and gold colors. It was the perfect cake for the perfect theme!

The makeup of the bride was so trendy and the bold lipstick color really made the lips stand out. The hairstylist created an elegant braid which really suited Rebecca’s face. For the stationary, Elisa created beautiful stationary with printed florals which had burgundy, blue and earthy colors.

All of this shoot would have never been possible without the efforts of these vendors and without 2 awesome vendors who were able to make the shoot streamed to all the audience in pictures. Kai Davis is an amazing photographer who is capable of capturing images with such great detail and color. Her photography is so airy and real that it really blows my mind away. Our videographer,Mas Media, is also such a talented videographer. Throughout the shoot, he was running around with his video equipment and his drone,and needless to say, his video speaks for itself. I literally teared up when I watched it. So so sweet to see what a work of art he has created.

I know I have probably written so much about this shoot already, but it is indeed one of my most memorable ones! Now all you need to do is sit back and enjoy these photos and video from this magical day!
