When it comes to a wedding, people think that it is all about the bride. This may be true to some extent but today’s Indian groom knows to share the spotlight with his bride with an elevated style sense. An Indian groom’s outfit is dressier and he has more options than his western counterparts, who mostly resort to the standard tuxedo. Indian groom’s outfit options are increasing day by day indicating that the new man is equally conscious of his looks for his big day. Whether you prefer timeless attires or outfits with an element of surprise the modern style trends are catering to all sensibilities. It is all about coordinating and contrasting, and bringing out the man in you for a memorable beginning. The Indian groom has the opportunity to coordinate colours, choose silhouettes, wear prints and go flamboyant all the way, if he wishes. He can choose from a plethora of options like the traditional sherwani, kurta-pyjama, dhoti kurta, indo-western suits, Jodhpuri bandhgalas, riding breeches or even classic three piece suits.

The modern Indian groom is open to experimental looks and is all set to change his image with traditional sherwani and safa. Let’s have a look at the latest exceptional style trends for Indian groom in The Designer Menswear Studio: YAJY Design Lounge, located at 82 Lansdowne, Kolkata, where they offers a variety of options in ethnic menswear and welcomes all the customisation of the elements in his groom’s outfit, making him a perfect YAJY Groom.

Sherwanis for Indian grooms here range from the timeless colours of  ivory, cream, and beige to trendy colours and prints. Heavily embellished sherwanis are being paired with neutral churidars. On the other hand, the designer has reversed the role of a churidar with embroidered or printed look of it against a minimalistic sherwani top. The silhouettes of  the modern sherwanis and the summer sherwanis here are also getting edgier with elaborate layers. The grooms are opting for regal looks by highlighting their sherwanis with exquisite brooches and tiered necklaces or going for a sleek contemporary look by adding Elements like Dupatta, Kalgi, Turban, Safa, and Cummerband. Many Indian grooms are also coordinating the embroidery or colour of their attire with their bride’s outfit. The designer menswear has customised a lot of it in the past years and is continuing to do so because of it being a favourite part of the attire of his grooms.

Contemporary leather or embellished Jodhpur jutis, chosen on the basis of ethnicity of the overall look, make a huge difference in the groom’s outfit. Simple leather moccasins look great with sleek bandhgalas whereas the glamour of heavily embellished sherwani is enhanced by ethnic mojaris. Adding an appealing twist to the theory, YAJY offers italian leather shoes to his grooms which is creating an appraisable difference amongst the Grooms of YAJY when compared to others, making the groom stand-out.

The Ethnic Menswear Designer, Aditya Jain, founder of the label YAJY is helping you make your selection easy by passing out a few of his suggestions based on his experience on dressing up his grooms for the big day.

Same Colour Hues for the Groom’s Sherwani and Brides Dress:

The groom can wear something which is of the same color as of what the bride is wearing.

Impressive Statement with the Same Colour and Different Shade or Tint:

Yes, a couple can select the same color for their special day, but opt for the different shades or tints.

Refreshing to see the Opposite – Red with Groom and Golden for Bride

The Red and Gold is a common Indian color combination and one has to be bold enough to bring off in a different look for their wedding. You can both wear dresses having totally different colours, but one thing should be remember that the colors should be the harmonizing and exact contrast opposites.

Matching Elements:

Elements-Dupatta, Kalgi, Turban, Safa, and without Dupatta Your Sherwani is incomplete. The best way to select your Dupatta and other elements colour, match with your partner’s dress, it is a most popular color combination between the bride and the groom if you want to have some amount of color coordination.

Here Comes a Perception in White:

If your wedding is on Summer’s Day I suggest you to for ivory white and pure white sherwani, your color put all eye on you for the cool and calm quality, gives a Simple and Smart Dressing Sense.

Designer Speaks: “If every wedding tells a story, the groomal outfit is a protagonist. And when it comes to choosing the wedding outfit, traditional trumps trends. Of all the ensembles a groom wear, the wedding sherwani is probably the most special. We at YAJY preserves sophisticated pastels or neutral pastels like pale pink, ivory, ecru, champagnes, silver and many more for the wedding day.”
