Photography in Style
Gone are the days of every groom wearing a similar look. Nowadays there are many options for grooms to style themselves up and when these options get a designer’s touch, it will definitely turn your groom-to-be into a style icon. Jodhpuri suits, wedding kurta pajama and suits with designer blazers, all these look stunning for a sangeet or a more casual beach wedding, but a sherwani is something that always comes in mind while imagining a picture perfect groom at a grand wedding.

Imagine your handsome groom in a long coat emblazoned with sequins and embroidered threads and mirror work, worn over churidar, Patiala, salwar, afghani, or dhoti. A turban over head and a simple stole wrapped over one shoulder and held in the opposite hand - this is the iconic image of an Indian groom.

Keeping in mind the image of modern Indian men, designers also give the sherwani a modern touch by immersing Indian and western style together in the form of the Indo-western sherwani. The Indo-western sherwani is not as long as the traditional sherwani but it also enhances your look and will definitely make those heads turn. And for those of you who do not want a completely traditional Indian wedding attire but prefer an eclectic alternative, well there is also something for your groom.
