If you're engaged to be married, you're likely battling between feelings of uncontrollable excitement, bouts of planning-induced stress and a build-up of nervousness - it's all part and parcel of tying the knot. And while you'll want what you wear to reflect your faith, to be understated doesn't mean that you have to be underwhelming. With today's guide, we'll show you how you can stay beautifully modest on your wedding day, without compromising style.
1. Be bold in a beautiful black abaya

Grey doesn't have to be dull. This intricately designed grey gown is adorned with detailed blossom embroidery to bring a timeless silhouette to life, ensuring you radiate confidence on your big day. Let your worries fall to the wayside and wear this stunning modest wedding dress with pride.
4. Drape yourself in gold

Contemporary modest fashion doesn't get more impressive than this gorgeous open abaya influenced by the blossoming days of spring.
