In truth, for the bride and he groom, their wedding day isn’t just a day of celebrations. It’s the day for which they made endless decisions, and months and months of preparations for. It’s the day for which all that drama broke out, and maybe even a few tears were shed. Excitement and nervousness are probably the biggest emotions felt on that day—apart from love, of course. And this is regardless to what religion the bride and groom follow (or don’t!)
But despite it being so, that day is also one of the most memorable; not only for the bride and groom, but also for their friends and family members.
If one of your Muslim friends is getting married any time soon, and if you’re looking for appropriate gift ideas, then look no further. We’ve got you covered! Here are a few of our wedding gift suggestions.
Beautiful, decorative candles make wonderful gifts for any bride and groom. Arabic calligraphic decorative wedding candles, in our opinion, will make the perfect gift for your friends. And this is regardless to whether or not your friend has any Arabic roots. They’re sure to find it exotic. You’ll be able find something to your preference in most Islamic wedding gift shops or websites.
Prayers are a huge part of any practicing Muslim’s life. It’s something most people are taught to perform from a very young age, and something they tend to do until their last moments on Earth. Gifting your friend with a prayer dress, praying mat and perhaps even prayer beads might not seem like a very exciting gift, but trust us when we say it’ll be a thoughtful gift.
In most cultures and countries, gifting jewelry is not uncommon at all. Depending on how close you are to your friend, and how well you know her, you might consider personalized jewelry as your wedding gift to her. If you feel a name pendant is too common, then add an exotic twist to it by getting her name done in Arabic. Again, this has no relation to whether or not she has any Arabic roots.
If you’re not quite close to the bride or the groom, then giving them a too personal wedding gift can be a little awkward. If you’re looking for a slightly less personal gift option, then like with for most couples, a set of couple mugs can be considered a light and fun gift; especially if can find a couple with funny Islamic slogans in it!
