7 Go-To Outfits Men Can Never Go Wrong With At An Indian Wedding

When you get a wedding card at your place, one of the first thing that pops up in your mind is, “What will I wear?” And, we are talking about men as well. Yes, men too think of putting together awesome looks that will not only make them look good, but attract all attention towards them at the wedding functions. But many a times, they are left in a tight spot. 

Sadly enough, unlike the variety and styles that women have at their disposal to flaunt when it comes to wedding outfits, men sort of very limited choices traditionally. So, here is a list of options you can wear to a wedding and make the right impression. Who knows, you might just find your match at one of the functions too!

#1. The classic black suit

Can you ever go wrong with the classic well-fitted black suit look? Absolutely not! Wear it with a solid coloured and well-tailored shirt.

You may or not team that up with a bow tie, a slim tie or just a formal scarf and you are good to attend a cocktail party or a reception dinner.

#2. The beige/brown magic

For the more informal functions, instead of wearing Indian outfits, wear a nice plain crisp white slim fit shirt or bright blue one with beige/brown pants (and not the usual black/blue trousers) and formal shoes in the tone of brown. You are all dressed up for an outdoor morning function, a bachelors do or an after party.

If you want to look dressed up for a wedding function, but not too dressed up at the same time, then you need to mix and match formal with casual. Wear a casual yet chic shirt and trouser/linen pants combination. On top of this, add a nice waistcoat and that is all you need to look well-dressed for the occasion.

And, nowadays you have a lot of styles in waistcoats to choose from. So, to get more ideas, you can also search for images of the latest fashion weeks on the Internet.

And when nothing else seems to be right, just go back to being simple. Well, what we mean is that the basic kurta pyjama teamed up with a waistcoat with juttis is a classic wedding day look. If you are attending a close friend or relative’s wedding, you can go with this simple yet classic look. You can experiment with colours and fabric too to look a little different.

Important Tips-

  • Unless you want green and yellow stains over your clothes, avoid wearing white at the haldi/mehendi function especially if the bride/groom happens to be a close friend.
  • If it is a summer wedding, try to incorporate cool khadi fabric in your wardrobe.
  • If it is a beach destination wedding, dressing light in pastel is the key.
  • Do not wear mismatched colours. Ranveer Singh can pull off anything, but you might end up becoming the laughing stock.
  • Do not put on too many layers all at once. Layering looks good but if done the proper way.
  • Get a good haircut and be well groomed to make your outfits look even better on you.
