The magnificence and grandeur of an Indian wedding is unique. It is a day when you make a commitment for life with those saat-pheras.
On your wedding day, you have to make sure that you not only complement your bride-to-be in making those lifelong vows, but also when it comes to your look and appearance. Yes dear grooms, you have to take extra care to look stunning on your special day. And, for that you need to invest in some trendy accessories as well. These traditional and stylish accessories will not only enhance your overall appearance, but also accentuate your sophistication and charisma. So, here we bring to you a list of accessories that every Indian groom must have.
A kalgi enhances the beauty of the pagdi or turban. This bejeweled piece looks similar to a brooch but is worn on the turban. You can also go for feathered ones. Many prefer to go for pearl or metal with semi-precious ornate stone kalgis.
It is a long scarf that has tassels at the ends. This piece is mostly worn with sherwani. A dupatta in a contrasting colour is worn with the sherwani to complete the look. Easy to carry and an inevitable part of sherwani, the dupatta can be draped around your neck or can be worn on the shoulder of one arm going right around your waist and then wrapped around the other hand. You can also wear a dupatta in a colour that matches with your bride's attire, to strike an even more picture-perfect look together!
The haar or neckpiece bears a traditional significance for many Indian grooms, as much as it is a style statement. You can choose to either wear a single string of big pearls with a semi-precious stone pendant, or go for the layered pearl look. A layered necklace would have three or five strings of small pearls with antique pendants or brooches. You can also consider necklaces made of beads and coloured pearls to match your outfit.
A pocket square accentuates the beauty of a sherwani in many ways. You can either match it with your overall attire or go for a contrasting shade so that it stands out and catches attention. Pair it with your sherwani or suit, and it is sure to turn heads.
