It depends on how conservative they are. You should always dress modestly.. but I feel like if the bride never wears hijab and dresses really “western” what you would be allowed would be far different from if the bride always wears hijab and face coverings etc etc. For your hubby it is pretty easy, just wear a dark suit. For you it is a bit touchy..Most muslim weddings (that i know) are pretty formal.. and it also depends on what part of the ceremony you are going  to. If it is like in a mosque.. you have to cover your hair and wear sox, long sleeves etc. If it is in a home or like a banquet area.. dress formally, maybe something to cover your arms.. as to not offend older people. I would say a long dress with long sleeves/cardigan and you should be fine.

@vintage2010: my pleasure! If it is in a mosque make sure to wear socks to cover your feet because you will have to take off your shoes.. and no strong perfumes. However, if they are that conservitave they may seperate the men from the women and children. So be prepared to walk in with your hubby and split ways for the rest of the ceremony! lol. What are the brides origins? Is she of arabic or indian origins or other?

@MrsNeutrino:

 

I agree.. Also usually Muslims either have an ” Islamic ceremony” or just a ” cultural ceremony”- ur best bet would be to talk to the bride herself or someone that is also going as well to have a better idea of what the wedding expects. (:
