White wedding dress & wedding rings

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Fatwa.org.au
The wearing of a white dress on your wedding and also wedding rings originate from the non-muslims. Is it possible that if we follow this culture, we will be raised among the non-muslims?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

The peculiar white wedding dress and wedding rings are customs of the kuffar. It is not permissible to follow such customs of the kuffar. The hadith says “Whoever resembles a nation is from them.”

And Allah knows best.
