Planning what to wear for your upcoming wedding can be a challenge. Especially if your spouse-to-be has made it clear that your wedding will be the social event of the season. Thankfully, there are many resources available for helping you figure out what you should, and more importantly, shouldn’t wear. Here are some of the most popular ideas and tips, all collected in a continuously updated style guide for the modern Indian groom.

Focus on the Safa

The wedding turban is one of the most classical pieces of clothing for an Indian groom, and as such can be one of the most difficult to design. The reason is simple – there are as many different ways to wear it as days in the year!

Take a look at where your family is from when determining which fabric, color, and adornments to use. After all, it is one of the most visible ways to pay homage to your ancestry without having to completely redesign an otherwise modern wedding.

Should You Wear a Sherwani?

The answer to this question will determine if you are having a traditional Indian wedding or not. It is that simple. This dress-like top comes in a variety of colors and decorations that can be imminently customizable, making it easy to incorporate it into even the most complex of ceremonies.

The one issue some grooms may face is the fact that it is typically paired with some skinny churidar pants. If you cannot wear skinny garments, for whatever reason, then it may be time to consider alternatives.

Turn to Raghavendra Rathore

This clothing designer is famous throughout South-East Asia for merging minimalistic chic with the simple elegance modern weddings require. His bridal collection brings together light and dark colors, creating a masculine assortment that can pair with nearly any color scheme your bride and her family may settle on!

Why Not Turn to a Tuxedo?

This western outfit is becoming more and more common in Indian weddings. The reason is simple – as more Indians live in countries like the United States, it is becoming increasingly acceptable to integrate non-Indian garments and traditions into Indian weddings.

Tuxedos, while traditionally black, can come in a wide variety of styles, patterns, and colors. This means that you can easily have your outfit customized to work with any theme imaginable! Just make certain that you know what colors you need before going to a tailor. Repeat visits can be a time sink and a nightmare in the days leading up to your wedding!
