Men’s Indian Wedding Apparel Tips to Keep in Mind before You Go Shopping
Excited about your big fat Indian wedding? Have you started shopping for men’s Indian wedding outfits? It’s crucial to pick your outfits early to look stunning and stylish not just on the big day but also for other wedding events. Here are some tips to get you started.
For the Nuptials
Symbolizing class and style, the sherwani is a top pick among men’s Indian wedding outfits for the nuptials. Sherwanis are available in a wide range of colour choices ranging from dark hues such as maroon and navy to light shades such as ivory, cream, peach, blue and many others. Keep in mind the theme of the wedding as well as the time of nuptials to make the right choice. Subtle colours bring freshness to day affairs whereas dark hues work best for evening proceedings.
Outfit Choices for Other Events
Indian weddings are multi-day, multi-event affairs – this is great because it allows a groom to flaunt many different styles of men’s Indian wedding outfits. For the sheer comfort they offer, you may consider the dhoti-kurta and Pathani suit for the Haldi or Mehendi ceremony. If you want to look dapper for the sangeet ceremony, think about wearing an achkan suit with Patiala bottoms or an Indo-Western outfit. To make a sophisticated style statement at the reception, consider a Jodhpur suit or bandhgala with breeches.
Accessories to Complete the Look
As crucial as wedding outfits are, it’s also important not to lose sight of accessories. A statement necklace featuring pearls or stones is a great way to add regality to a sherwani. A piece of substantial jewellery is another way to complement a sherwani or achkan suit. A bejewelled safa pin is a great way to accessorize the headpiece whether it is a turban or a safa. For Indo-Western outfits, consider contemporary accessories such as a watch, cufflinks, buttons and pocket-squares.
Coordinating with the Bride
Colour-coordinated wedding outfits are a red-hot trend at the moment. You can twin with your bride in many ways – by matching the colour of your safa with the colour of her dupatta or by matching the colour of your shawl/stole with the colour of her dupatta. For a heightened effect, you can match the colour of your sherwani with the colour of her lehenga. Matching with your bride’s attire makes the two of you look like a well-suited couple – and the photographs turn out great.
Don’t leave wedding shopping to the last minute – exploring at a relaxed pace will help you determine your style and help you put together a well-curated ensemble that makes you look your best!
