Grooms Ultimate Wedding Bible
GROOM'S ULTIMATE WEDDING BIBLE
Weddings are one of the most memorable times for the bride and groom, but they can be stressful. While the bride takes a fair share of the spotlight with her haute couture, the groom deserves to feel like a king on his big day.
Here we are with our wedding fashion bible for all the grooms seeking help for their wedding day. We will cover essentials from outfits to silhouettes, accessories to safas, and from shoes to hair & skincare.
- WHY SHERWANI IS A CLOSET ESSENTIAL
A significant symbol of cultural heritage, sherwanis have retained their glory and charm as it remains the preferred choice of attire by Indian grooms to celebrate their wedding day. Sherwanis not only represent tradition, but it's a classy piece to showcase your exuberant desi side. The silhouettes are uniquely designed with the finest fabrics such as velvet, silk, and brocade, keeping in mind the grandeur of Indian weddings.
What makes sherwani the ultimate essential is the royalty it carries and the masculine tone it upholds. It not only makes the groom look dignified but, at the same time, makes him look sophisticated as well.
There are various designer sherwanis available in the market with different materials, cuts, and designs. We recommend these popular sherwanis for your wedding day.
- MUCH LOVE GROOM ACCESSORIES
Accessories are an integral part of a groom's outfit. A little addition of a brooch to your outfit, dupatta, or even pagdi can make a massive difference to your overall look. You must invest time in choosing the right accessories to compliment your sherwanis.
Accessories add a subtle, classy touch to your look and are more tasteful with a string of pearls worn with the tailor-made sherwani. Kundan mala or a Pearl necklace for the groom has become trousseau essentials since they go well with pastel shades and rich brocade, or velvet fabric.

- WHAT SHOE TO CHOOSE AND WHY LOAFERS ARE FOR THE WIN
No Indian groom would dream of stepping out without a comfy pair of loafers. While jutties are much preferred, it's essential to knit comfort with tradition for the millennial groom. Shoes should enhance the ethnic outfit of the groom, and the chic loafers are a wardrobe staple that complements the ethnic look like no other.
Once you have picked the perfect pair, don't forget to take time walking in your wedding day loafers to avoid painful shoes. Here's another tip: Dance your heart out in your sangeet day shoes, too, to prevent some goof-up on the dance floor.
Below are a few suggestions for you to pick and choose from
- MIX AND MATCH YOUR SAFA
The Safa or the turban is an integral part of a groom's attire. The right safa can take the sherwani to a whole new level.
A safa or any other kind of headgear is one of the most essential groom accessories. Whether it matches colors with the bride, a floral, or lehariya prints, you can never go wrong with the bejeweled headgear. But don't be obsessed with the colors or patterns. The material or fabric of the safa also makes a huge difference!
- TAME THE MAN-E
Between the 'what outfit to pick' to matching accessories, the one thing that most grooms forget is that the hairstyles can make or break the wedding look. It's always best to opt for a hairstyle that accentuates your facial features and your outfit. In case you are wearing a turban or a safa, always ensure that your hair doesn't stick out as it makes for a very shabby appearance.
The soon-to-be grooms also need to develop a hair care routine. Remember the mantra: oil, lather, rinse, repeat. It's also essential to eat a well-balanced diet and stay hydrated despite the stress of wedding preparations, as your hair will only shine if it is healthy from within.
- ULTIMATE SKINCARE
Gone are the days when the pre-wedding preparations were only limited to the bride. A growing number of men these days make the extra effort to look the best on their D-day. Even men need to take care of their skin. Repeat after us: Cleanse, Tone, and moisture (CTM). Yes, you heard that right. The soon-to-be-grooms should strictly follow this routine to get that natural glow for the Big Day. Besides the CTM, the grooms should opt for the facial. Facials are a great way to remove the dead skin and make the skin look healthy. But don't just go for a DIY here. Professional help is a must if you have never done a facial on your own before. Weddings could also be a great time to put the man in a manicure. We are not joking. Manicure treatments are not only meant for women. The groom needs to look clean, trimmed, and bluffed on his wedding day. While we are talking about trimming, here's an important tip. Don't take the risk of shaving on your wedding day. Shave a day or two in advance to avoid any irritation or redness. Any extras can be easily trimmed on the D-day.
So, there you have it, a comprehensive guide which surely will help you to shine just the way you want to on your big day. Just start with the basics: skin, hair, and your wardrobe, and you are set.
