Gone are the days of boring A-lines. The modern man has cultivated a taste that matches with the women’s, in every sense! The present era calls for vibrant colours and traditional yet western glamour, merging into the deep cavern of innovation and experiments.
Whom are we recalling first, then?
Whether it is Sabyasachi or Raghavendra Rathore, Manish Malhotra or Kunal Rawal, the options keep growing, and how, you ask! The modern trend stretches from majestic Sherwani & dupatta to Anarkali and silk. With intricate embroidery matched with pearls and stones, the grooms-to-be are now spoiled with a diverse list of options to choose from.
More so after the Virushka fiesta, the classic monotone look has garnered quite a bit of attention among the grooms-to-be! The saafa, as a trendsetter, has been the icing on the cake, in terms of accentuating its glamour. Matched with kundans and or a layered necklace, monotones can be the best when stealing the show this season. This particular style is also ideal for day-to-evening weddings or open airs as it merges perfectly with the background.
Jackets perfectly make up for a western chic, versatile kurta and are ideal for 'The Day'. Whether it is for a destination wedding or simply spicing up a traditional attire, jackets are ideal for grooms because of their exquisite dapper look. These are also preferred by grooms who want to go minimum on jewellery, yet focus on modern trends and fashion.
The modern trend of turban or saafa is new to none. Though being used since time immemorial, the present day calls for some over-the-top flaunting. Bejewelled saafas add the necessary drama and also brings a royal enigma. Available in vibrant colours to match or contrast with the sherwanis and kurtas, the saafas are pie-in-the-sky to grooms searching for some regional touch.
Embellished dupattas are not just-a-bride-thing anymore! Commonly spotted in regional and destination weddings in Rajasthani palaces, the gorgeous dupattas have emerged as a quintessential accessory for sherwanis. Available in contrasting colours and decorated with motif embroidery, sequins, stones, and zardozi, these dupattas are enough to put the Royals of Udaipur to shame!
Ask a stylist to pick out the best colour palette and choose what suits you best. However, when deciding on the colour, consider the fresh trend of similar hues and rock the stage. Instead of opting for contrasting colours, most of the grooms today prefer settling on a different shade that matches with the bride’s attire. Based on this, the grooms can either opt for classic embroidery or prints for that perfect Indo-western wedding in the city!
From Jodhpuri to Pakistani, Angrakha to Anarkali, the fashion world is brimming with exquisite options to choose from. The trendsetters have experienced and brought options for both monotone and ombre lovers to the table. Thus, whether to go for a western chic, versatile kurta or end up with the royal look, grooms are all ready to compete with their better halves in the best way possible!
