Opal & Rhinestone Silver Ring . Makkah (in Saudi Arabia)


So I was waiting in the car with hubby yesterday before going to do photography at a wedding and thought I'd take a photo to show you all the rings I was wearing.

My favourite ring set ;) & another ring from Makkah (in Saudi Arabia) which I was gifted last year when my mamu went to Hajj ^_^

  4. wow how lovely! ur married aww just a random question as a hijabi,did u incoprorate the hijab within ur wedding dress?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Thank you :)
    Yep, I did... I got the same material and colour rectangle hijab made when I ordered both my Wedding and Walima outfits and used them to cover my hair.
    As a pakistani bride I wore a lengha and as you know the HUGE dupatta is part of the outfit.. but was see thru, which is why I had my that coverage underneath.
    I will see if I can post up a general idea of how it looked without really posting up to much of how I looked as they are pictures I would like to keep personal.

    1. Nope, I wore a lengha with a long kameez on the wedding.
      On the walima I wore a long kameez which was long from the back and shorter from the front, underneath was a plain trouser suit.
      I don't know if you can picture that lol
      I will try give you an idea of the outfits too :)
      Are you getting married soon? Wedding shopping was stressful but it all comes together in the end :)

  7. yup I am! as a hijabi who where's an abayah it's kinda hard looking for something that's going to cover you properly, as the wedding isn't going to be segregated i want to cover up but still look like an asian bride if u understand me! and then there's outfits that u have to where after the wedding I haven't even got thoese yet!

    1. To be honest, the bridal fashion of the moment is floor length gowns/lengha with really long kameezes which would be ideal for you.
      I personally didn't cover my neck at my wedding, which I kind of regret now... however if you were to look for an outfit with a high collar? My walima gown had a high collar and instead of wearing the necklace.. I found a necklace that worked nicely as a head piece and wore it on top of the cloth I had wrapped around my head.
      Could I ask where abouts you are based?
      If you live in or around manchester I could suggest a few shops to you... if you have enough time I would say to get one ordered...that way you can ask for long sleeves and get it designed so that you don't feel uncomfortable x
      With clothes after wedding... I will post a few of my outfits I had made... But I now am seeing a lot of abayah style outfits which you could maybe get?

    1. Ahh, I had the same problem! I didn't want my mum or my hubby to have to spend too much on my outfits...
      My wedding outfit was from Neelams and I managed to get the for I think around £550
      and my Walima outfit was from Burooj.
      With my walima outfit I acutally picked a non bridal design from their couture collection and asked them to get a bigger dupatta made with it. That was more pricey around £700. But I would say try and do that, don't go in saying your looking for a bridal piece, say you want to look at the heavy party wear they have and then you can ask to increase and decrease the amount of work depending on your price range.
      Their service was really nice.

      Neelam Creations and Burooj Couture are both on Wilmslow Road.
      More shops:
      - Je Roche (they are quite pricey but they also have the best long gown style outfits and amazing work on their suits, the most on trend.
      - Libas Manchester (they are on stockport road, you'll find them on facebook.. my sister wears abayah and she got one of her outfits for my wedding made from there)
      - Rewaj Suhaag (They are next door to Libas, they have unstitched suits)
      - Rubina Khan (In Burnage, You'll find them on facebook too)

      I can't think of that many more! I shall let you know if I think of more!
      Think I should do a post on this topic

    1. Your welcome :)
      Ahh home parties with the girlies are the best!
      Neelam the main woman does the orders... she will ask you to look through the designs she has... tell her what you like and don't like... but she will want you to pick an outfit from her designs and then make adjustments to it as if you just give your own design her makers (in india) get confused!
      But definitely take a picture if you want her to know what type of thing your looking for x

    1. No problem :)
      All of my hijabs to match my outfits are from different places and they happen to go.
      However I do go to a place in Blackburn called 'Hijab Centre', they have all sorts of colours in all sorts of shades... may be worth a trip down there? Search for them on Facebook.
      They also do amazing hijab pins and also accessories for the hijab, I bought a lovely rhinestone headband from there.
