The wedding day undoubtedly makes it to the top ten happiest and most eventful days in any person’s life, but somehow on that very day itself, the bride ends up getting more attention than the groom.
But, he too has to look more regal and handsome than he had ever looked before, after all, it’s his day as well. The wedding sherwani, likewise, ends up becoming one of the most memorable garments in his lifetime and there should be no holding back as far as designing it is concerned.
- Use of Fabric: One of the most crucial aspects of selecting a sherwani is to understand the body type of the man who would be donning it. There are countless designs and cuts available, but some of them might be more flattering than others. The fabric of course, is the first step. Those who want to go for the classics can always opt for a silk sherwani. They never go out of style and looks great on just about anybody provided one chooses the right color and cut, the two next important criteria on the list. Other materials like tussar or even velvet, lends a very regal and luxurious look.
- Flawless Embroidery: A sherwani can go from drab to wow just by the right kind of embroidery or embellishment used on it. Embroidery with the luxuriant resham threads lends such a vintage and old world charm to any attire, and if one is planning a royal themed wedding, it would fit right in. Those looking for a more extravagant style might opt for Swarovski crystals and they would add that much needed glamour. However, those who want to go for clean cuts and less extravagant looks might simply opt for a monochrome sherwani is a brilliant color, with just one or two strategically placed accents. Sea Blue or Emerald Green colors looks best, and all one needs to add depth to the color is some good embroidery along the cuffs and neck.
- Right Accessories: Like every other garment, the sherwani too needs some help from the accessories to make it stand out. In fact, in case there are budget constraints, even an apparently simple sherwani can be made to look unconventional just with the use of the right accessories. The most one is this segment is most definitely the turban that is intrinsic to the ceremony for cultural reasons. It can be made from the same fabric as the sherwani or might be in contrasting colors. Then there is the churidaar or the trousers that are worn with, and they are mostly made from neutral colors like gold or beige. And lastly, the shoes, more specifically, Indian “Nagara” in royal style, just gives the finishing touches. Other might still opt for men’s jewelry like long chains or bracelets.
All of them together would add up to a cohesive and royal look, much deserved by the groom on the big day. So get set to woo your bride and feel like the king that you are in your glorious attire!
