Assalamu'Alaikum Sisters and Sister Hayfa,

Also, would you say that extravagance is frowned upon? Would that be considered wasteful?

My wedding was very basic we didn't want or could we afford just starting out all of the frills....

But I would have to say that a lot of the money does go to food portion of it you are feeding the guests on the mens and womens side and anyone in the masjid community that comes for salat and would like to stay as well....

My Jilbab was made by a friend of mine it was a very simple design and was made from satin and was very pale yellow. But some of the wedding jilbabs that I've seen sisters wear with the hijab are quite detailed very fancy my hijab just had light I think from that stand point it could be very expensive. It's also nice to spend less on the actual wedding and have a little more to set up your home.

Hello. I'm living in Ukraine and my marriage was also mixed. We had friends of Muslims and Christians. Our vows were done the muslim way, rings were exchanged actually after the vows were made, we almost forgot!!! We had both types of music, english and arabic music and dancing.
