Where the bride has enough advice - both online and offline – on what to wear, not much information is available for grooms, especially on what’s currently in and what isn’t. We’re here to change that, with this handy list.
The first thing that comes to mind whenever we talk about attire for grooms, the sherwani is the go-to option. Originally derived from the British frock coat, it’s a type of a long coat typically worn over a kurta.
There are good reasons for its popularity, too; if done right – with just the right dhoti or churidar, and maybe even a dupatta – its beauty is unparalleled.
Jodhpuri Suit/BandhgalaThe bandhgala/Jodhpuri coat is an Indian coat with a round, buttoned-up collar. These coats are done up in subtle colours, as opposed to a medley of colours and motifs. They make for a dapper outfit when paired with the right pants.
Waistcoat w/ Dhoti-Kurta
If you’re looking for the safe option, a waistcoat with the classic dhoti and kurta could be procured in the least amount of time, and would also be pretty comfortable to walk around in.
There are few things that could go wrong with a three-piece suit. For one, there are quite a bit of types to choose from, though most importantly, it’s not as flashy as other traditional groom-wear. A slim fit variation works the best, but it can still be tailor-made to preference.
Not traditionally seen on grooms at Indian weddings, the tuxedo is starting to show up. Usually reserved for more formal days like the reception, the tuxedo is a classic option. Usually paired with a bow tie and white shirt, the tux could come in a variety of types and fits, too, so we’d recommend looking around a bit before committing to one.
Achkan is a type of sherwani (shorter than the classic one) that makes for perfect wedding wear. It’s more like a bandhgala, though a bit longer and with different types of designs and fabric.
Peshawari salwars are comfortable, look good and go with mostly anything you throw on top as long as the colours complement each other. Keep the top light though as these salwars have quite a bit of embroidery on them. They even come in metallic colours.
Cowl kurtas are slowly making their way as a popular option for grooms, though finding someone to make just the right one for you could be a task. Typically draped up from around the waist, they can be combined with a short matching jacket.
Velvet jackets have been around as wedding wear for grooms for some time now, and have somehow managed to remain popular. Usually done in longer sizes and darker colours, velvet jackets usually go well with well-fitting trousers or churidars.
There can be a variety of things that can be done to velvet jackets, too, like experimenting with the lapels, buttons or length.
