When it comes to talking, discussing and planning for a big fat Indian wedding, it is safe to assume that the entire focus drastically shifts to the pretty brides.
Be it their hair, makeup, jewellery to skin care tips and makeup tips to haircare tips.
Unintentionally though, but don’t you think it’s a little unfair for the grooms here? Hell it is, right? We heard you!
And, so, we decided to move over brides, and dedicate this entire article for the handsome grooms out there. And thankfully, the new batch of fashion events have given us some great inspiration and some amazing looks for Indian grooms.
So if you are a groom, then check these out immediately and if it’s your best friend or brother, who is set to take the saat pheras, show these beauties to them or steal some for yourself!
For a majestic, king kind of charm and elegance, this combination by Shantanu and Nikhil is the best bet. An ivory sherwani and a velvet royal red stole with a golden border and copper churidar. Matching jootis is all that you'll need more.
This look by Shantanu and Nikhil is very techno and perfectly combines western and traditional styles beautifully. This metallic grey outfit falls in the category of a jacket as well as a bandhgala. For the modern grooms and those who are not into the conventional colours, this outfit is a great choice.
Now that monochromes are in, a single tone intricately embroidered sherwani with a dhoti has a classic charm to it. It is neither too flashy nor too dull. It is a sophisticated and subtle option for grooms who do not prefer bling. This creation by Varun Bahl in ivory colour is elegance personified, but if you are not in for ivory, any colour in this design would look fabulous.
Whoever thought pastel pink is a bride's thingie, will be so mistaken after checking this sophisticated design by Varun Bahl. This pink bandhgala short jacket with the same coloured velvet dhoti pants will sure make for an 'eye-popper' groom. If you are having a day wedding, this will fit just perfectly.
For a groom, we are sure you never thought of a floral print kurta with wide-legged pants, right? But, looking at this exoticness created by Varun Bahl, don’t you agree this would make for a good option for a pre-wedding event? Kurta and this style of pants won't be too heavy and the floral print will give it a vibrant look. Thanks to Mr. Bahl, now grooms can be a little experimental.
Layering is one of the best ways to change as well as enhance the look of any outfit (if done rightly). And, this creation by Varun Bahl justifies this just about perfectly. This was a simple cream coloured kurta payjami before an open sherwani was added to it. Don't you feel this layering idea makes for the best way to give an attire a whole new look altogether?
Tarun Tahiliani's outfit also uses the layering style but has a more royal charm. The chikankari sherwani jacket subtly reveals the gorgeous ari embroidery in the kurta underneath. And for the rest, the classic off-white and goldenish-yellow combination adds to the magnificence.
Looks like prints are in this season! A handblock floral print jacket and a balloon style white churidar is a pretty different design for anyone who wants to look traditional yet different. And, this jacket by Rohit Bal is a palette of colours that will suit almost anyone.
If you are not much into prints, but still want to keep up with the trend, Rohit Bal's printed bottom style could be the right thing for you. You can go for a printed bottom and team it with your sherwani. The pagdi and the printed bottom give it a very cheerful look yet retaining an ethnic touch.
Black never goes out of fashion! A black-velvet bandhgala jacket with a rose pattern and black balloon bottoms sure make for a dapper piece. From a cocktail party to even a bachelor's bash, this stunning creation by Rohit Bal blends with all occassions.
We perceive an ideal Indian groom to be all decked up in a heavily embellished sherwani with a cummerbund. Tarun Tahilani just made that come true! Apart from the sherwani, it is the waist belt that looks striking and ethnic, like a typical traditional groom!
If geeky is your style then this look by Manish Malhotra is just for you. A long jacket teamed with trousers of the same colour with an embroidered shirt that just peeks from within. Finally, some nerdy glasses and the look is complete. Worth giving a try we gues!
Light blue patterned jacket sherwani and bottoms with some accessories that represent wings, make this pretty much like a fairytale groom. Go by this stunning creation by Anju Modi and you are set as a dreamy groom.
Plain black kurta pyjama with an embroidered red or maroon stole by Varun Bahl totally makes it to the list of evergreen attires. A classic hairstyle to complete the look and you are good to go. And as we said earlier, black never goes out of style.
If you are looking for an outfit for the sangeet, take a hint from this creation by Nikhil and Shantanu. A velvet bandhgala jacket in Prussia blue with big golden buttons and matching shoes, is just perfect for the occasion. You can either stick to the earthy brown colour or team it up with a black one.
So, it's time to surprise everyone on your wedding day, espeically your pretty lady!
