The first ever “Nikah Bridal Convention” hosted by Nikah.ca was held in the Toronto Convention Center on Saturday, May 10th. PMW attended the event, to learn from it and hopefully one day host something similar in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.
Besides approximately 70+ vendors ranging from caterers, mehndi/henna artists, hijab/dress outfits and photographers, there were bridal showcases with Arab, African, and South Asian themes as well as some tutorials. This event was complete with some awesome giveaways and delicious food samples. Although there are many YouTube tutorials on hijabs (headscarves), the in-person ones were captivating and educational.
Hats off to Nikah.ca for putting on a great show and hopefully inspiring not only brides to be, but also folks like us to hold similar events across the continent and beyond.
