As 2020 comes to a close, the season of weddings is upon us again and all the limelight is on the to-be brides and grooms. Everyone could use a little partying and dressing up because this year took away most chances of doing so. Especially, if you’re the one getting married! Grooms finally get a chance to bring out some of their best outfits and shine through all their wedding functions. And of course, they need to be camera-ready at all times because these will be the memories that will stay with them forever. However, with a string of functions and a list of outfit choices to pick from, making decisions can get a little confusing. This is why we have created a roundup of some of the best outfits that you can pick from to stand out and be comfortable around your wedding.
The Mehendi: Keep it light and easy on your Mehendi because the sun is going to be out and you don’t need to overdo your outfit. If your theme involves flowers, let floral prints do the talking with lightweight Kurtas. You can also opt for green Kurta sets that instantly make you look fresh and handsome. Payal Singhal’s Zaffar Bandi Set is a great option for floral themes while the Jenjum Gadi’s light green Kurta Set comes with a Chanderi Silk dupatta and flared pants to complete the ‘green’ and breezy look for the event.
The Haldi: Things are bound to get messy on the day of your Haldi so the last thing you want to do is wear something uncomfortable. Stick to warm shades of yellow and orange to go with the occasion and keep it all breathable. Divyam Mehta’s Bandhani Stole Kurta Set adds the perfect amount of layers and chic to a Haldi look. You can even opt for experimental pieces like the double buttoned Kurta with unique cuts by Rajat Suri. Not only will it look stylish but it is bound to bring out your broad shoulders and lean frame.
The Sangeet/Reception: Sangeet night means time to dance it out and keep moving through the evening. It is also usually a nighttime function with more guests which means you really have to bring your A-game to the party. You can either stick to traditional pieces like the classic Bandhgala. If you want to add a touch of uniqueness to it, go for Bandhgalas created with asymmetric or the Angrakha buttons. Feel free to jump to western clothing for your Sangeet night with the best Tuxedo in the room with satin lapels. The best part about investing in a smart tux is that it can also double out as a great option for your Reception night if you choose the traditional path for your Sangeet. Both these options work really well for performing your dance moves and keep you in the running for ‘Groom of the Year’.
The Wedding: Be it day or night, your best bet for your wedding day is arguably a royal Sherwani. Get yourself a Sherwani with a matching stole that can elevate the look of the entire outfit. Sherwanis made with raw silk, zari beads and sequins will easily give you the ultimate groom vibe. On the other hand, you can also choose to pick one with intricate threadwork done on the sherwani and stole to bring out a form of richness in the outfit.
