Why do Somali hijabis all take off hijab for their wedding day

I always find it so comical that weddings are the one free pass day in our culture for hijabis to show their hair without anyone coming for them. And then back to covering full time

I get wanting to look pretty for your wedding but if you cover ain’t it supposed to be all the time? Why cover at all then lol. I would feel like a clown posting wedding pictures hair out all over IG then putting hijab on next day like the whole world didnt already see my hair. Not judging but I find it funny
 
I noticed too and it doesn't make sense. Who said it halal not to cover that day.

It's not their real hair so does it really count cause technically nobody saw your real hair? It mostly wigs and weaves, very few rock their natural hair.

It's mostly this

In a perfect Islamic world yes, a Hijabi bride would be great. But this is her day, with her man. I think its ok

Not all hijabis do this, the ones that do, are usually the part-time hijabis, or those who like to share part of their hair.

Real hijabis don't have mixed weddings and they don't have male photogs/videographers etc.

Most don't wear wigs but have extentions for length and thickness, so yes they are most definitely showing all of their hair but with added fake hair.
