An Indian groom’s guide to choosing the right Sherwani

From the time a wedding is announced, the entire world begins to revolve around the bride. However, grooms require their own fair share of time and attention. And this includes time, energy and efforts in selecting their own D-day attire. Selecting a wedding sherwani for the groom means staggering from store to store in search of that perfect attire which just pops. While it may seem a little overwhelming, but you’ll get by with a little help from your friends at Wedding Wire. Follow these points to the T and you’re good to go.

Determine your Wedding look

So, what is your style going to be? Classic and graceful or a contemporary masterpiece? This is one of the first things you need to decide before you start your hunt for the right sherwani. This will include all of the elements for your attire, which would create your desired look, be it the Safa, Kalgi, pocket square, Juttis or any accessories you may be planning to wear.

Pick a color

For day-weddings, a light color would be a good idea and for a nighttime affair, a rich dark shade will be the right pick. White, blue and black – the classics never fail you. But if you’re looking for something offbeat, try unconventional colors like purple, peacock green and pastel shades which are in this season.

If you’re planning to have a color-coordinated look with the bridze, then your sherwani color will be dependent on the bride’s lehenga choice. It will help you narrow down your options and make you look dapper when standing next to her.

Plain or Print

Your sherwani can be plain, printed with self design or have an elaborate funky print all over it – the choice is yours. You might want to consider vibrant floral prints as they are the latest trend taking over sherwani designs. If you’re not into prints but still want to make a statement, you can go for a pastel sherwani and announce yourself as the millennial groom.

Adding accessories

A printed Safa can be the defining element, which brings your plain sherwani to life. You could even go for a pocket square in a similar design. The intent is to create contrast for a dramatic effect. For some bling, wear pearl necklaces or the Nizam’s grace, a Satlada. Make sure your Juttis are of the same fabric as your sherwani. You can also add a regal touch by wearing a statement stole with the sherwani. A maroon velvet one would look elegant with an off-white sherwani.

Tailor-made twist

How the sherwani fits you can really make or break your D-day look. Ensure that it is snug at the right places and has room for you to be comfortable where required. Let your custom-made sherwani be the talk of the town.

An Indo-western look

An asymmetrical sherwani, an Anarkali-style with Pyjama or a set of Jodhpuri pants with a short mandarin collar jacket-inspired shirt. Seems out of the box? It definitely is, but it will also give you the dashing look to match your personality. It is not just the brides who are swamped with endless options for their bridal attire, top-notch fashion designers are also ensuring that grooms find themselves in a deluge of choices.

We suggest that you go ahead and take a fashion risk. After all, it is once-in-a-lifetime event (we hope) and you should look your absolute best. Flaunt your style and practice some poses so that all that jazz is sealed in time as your wedding album.
