Men's Wedding Fashion in India

Now close your eyes, take a deep breath and think: no more exclusive bachelor booze parties, no more Marilyn Monroe and Pam Anderson/Lee/Whatever on you walls, no more…okay, okay, I am not helping. I’ll stop and get on with it. From now on, you’ll need to look groomed - washed, shaven, clean. And the toughest of ‘em all - the difference between cutting nails and getting a manicure. The following lines are meant to educate and enlighten you on the nitty-grittiess of haute couture. So here goes. And best of luck. Many go for an eclectic fusion of the traditional with the Western in the form of the Bandhgala Jodhpuri suits. In traditional wear, too, there are a whole lot of options for the groom.

Most of the Indian marriages consist of at least three occasions the sangeet, the wedding and then, the reception. At the sangeet, which is a fun occasion, the clothes must reflect the spirit of the occasion. Ideal would be a Churidar-kurta, worn with a Nehru jacket and a stole- its both style and comfort combined. A Chogha, that is the modern day interpretation of the jama works very well, too. It finally boils down to what suits the groom.

For the wedding, a Sherwani or Achkan looks special. What you must avoid though is the tying of the Kamarbandh over the Achkan. A more stylish approach would be the contemporary version of the one or two button Achkan, wherein the knot of the Kamarbandh can be tied under it on the kurta. Just as important as the dress are the accessories. The right accessories can add that extra element of style to the whole outfit. The Saffa and the Juttis should be coordinated with the ensemble. For a bejeweled look, wear a lone string of pearls as an accessory.

For the reception ensemble should be understated and stylish. A Bandhgala Achkan with embroidered panels or a Sherwani or a well-cut jacket with a pocket looks great. Though the colours and cuts are mainly traditional, the newer bridegrooms are seen wearing other colours than merely shades of beige maye deep olive, grey, blue or even black.
