Weddings and nikahs in general are known for their sometimes over-the-top ceremonies and receptions. Over-the-top can be nice, but it is not always nice on your wallet and sometimes the focus wants to be on just the nikah. Here are some Pinterest inspiration to have a simple nikah.

Simple Henna: It honors the timeless tradition without doing elaborate designs. 

Iconic Makeup: It is classic and can even be worn every day. If you do not want to break the bank, ask a trustworthy family member or friend to do your makeup for your nikah. 

Decor: The great thing about decor is that you can DIY or "do it yourself". Seek some help from a crafty friend or Pinterest to get some simple nikah decor ideas. Think flowers, centerpieces, and table cloth. 

Nails: Nails are important, especially at nikahs. They will compliment your henna, your rings and other assessories. Make sure your nails are trimmed and polished. You can have a nail stylist do a simple yet fun design like the one pictures or even have a friend do it. You could even do it yourself, if you're a pretty good manicurist that is. 

Wardrobe: The model above, Mehreen Syed does it flawlessly. Her wardrobe is a simple color and style. She is wear a white embellished dress with light accessories. Her veil tunang is simple and embrodiered with pearls. Her look focuses not only on her beauty,but her union in nikah.
