In the run up to the wedding day, you have to put in painstaking efforts to acquire an immaculate wedding trousseau- and it is not restricted to the brides anymore. The groom's attire that was until now restricted to quintessential heavily embroidered sherwanis turbans and mojaris has now transformed into an enviable collection of stylish ensemble. The Indian groom is cool and experimental and wants to have as much fun dressing up as the bride. This wedding season is all about subtle ensemble with a focus on accessories.

What's hot in groom fashion this wedding season?

Thankfully, men are no longer afraid to experimenting with colours and patterns. One of the most recent Bollywood groom, Shahid Kapoor wore a sherwani featuring geometric motifs. Subtle floral prints and alternative colours have taken over the menswear trousseau arena. Traditional silhouettes are styled with modern aesthetics and ethnic wear is no longer a head-to-toe bling studded eyesore.

Tell us about the new colors and fabrics that are being used by designers?

Fresh pastel hues with quirky patterns and prints (Sabyasachi), regal blues and oxblood hues in rich velvets (Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna, Rohit Bal, Manish Malhotra) and fluid metallic tones (Narendra Kumar, Gaurav Gupta) have shifted the attention from regular beige and maroons. Velvet fabrics have made a dramatic comeback injecting a royal & vintage slant to men's wedding attire. Rich brocades will never lose its relevance to Indian weddings but for 2016, brocade motifs move towards a subtle urbanist outlook. Minimalist designers like Rajesh Pratap Singh have popularized the matka silk sherwani in slick & straightforward style.

Depending upon cultural variations, the groom's attire already comes with a variety of accessories like safa, sarpech and jewelry…Men don't have to make diamonds their best friend or wear chunky jewelry but little details like a metallic or pearl collar chain can really elevate your sartorial game on the big day. A floral brooch on a dark sherwani is very stylish. When wearing a tuxedo, the pocket square, cuff links and socks require attention. Last but not the least; be it in ethnic mojris or opulent loafers, wedding attire is incomplete without statement shoes.




Grooming tips to be followed before the big day?

It is important to not drastically change the appearance just before the wedding day. Get a haircut a week in prior since we radiate more confidence when we're comfortable with the idea of how we look. Last minute changes can leave you confused and unsure.



Suggestions for other occasions like cocktail, sangeet and Reception?
Remember the stylish bundi that Shahid Kapoor rocked in his sangeet ceremony? The great Indian waistcoast, the bundi is making waves at various wedding events off late. From a well tailored tuxedo to embroidered jackets, we're spoiled with choices.
