Wedding Attire for Men: The Guide for Indian Outfits

by Vikram Sharma Textile designer

India has a diverse culture with many vibrant traditions, but if you ask any Indian what one event they most look forward to, it's a big fat Indian wedding. Gone are the days when men's wedding attire was limited to safari suits and kurtas. The Indian groom now has a variety of wedding attire options, ranging from sherwanis to Nehru jackets to Jodhpuri suits; the groom's attire is no longer limited to gold embroidery and jazzy churidar. While kurta pyjamas are known for their comfort and are a popular choice for sangeet, sherwanis steal the show on the big day. But, before you choose one for yourself, you should know what outfit style you want to wear on your wedding day. Determine whether you want to go all-out traditional on your special day or opt for something classy and modern.

The various online stores have compiled a comprehensive guide for the fashionable Indian groom who wants to look his best on the most important day of his life. They have a selection of outfits that will be worn at various events such as sangeet, haldi, wedding, reception, and post-wedding dinner parties. After you've decided on an outfit, why not browse their exclusive menswear collection; the online stores guarantee you'll find everything you need right here.


Sangeet is one of the most enjoyable events of an Indian wedding, with lots of music, dancing, and partying. Because today is all about having fun and dancing on the floor, comfortable clothing is a must; you don't want to end up wearing something that's too tight and sweating in it while dancing. Today, various online stores recommend that their ideal Indian groom wear a kurta pyjama or south Indian white lungi.

Some men prefer to pair their kurtas with flared dhoti pyjamas. Kurta pyjamas are also worn casually in India, except at weddings, where they are heavily embroidered in bright contrasting colours to make the groom stand out.

On sangeet, the groom typically wears a bright yellow, orange, green, or maroon kurta with white pyjamas, while all of his relatives dress in a similar colour scheme so that they can be identified as guests from the groom's side. For a more formal look, the groom can pair his kurta-pyjama with a Nehru jacket or waistcoat and add a mono-tone dupatta for dramatic effect.


Sherwani is the most popular Indian wedding attire for men, giving the Indian groom an imposing royal appearance. It's a long jacket that covers the knees and has a button-down in the centre. The bottoms include a protective garment known as salwar. Sherwanis are classified into two types: traditional and achkan. The simple sherwani is associated with Muslims, whereas the achkan sherwani is associated with Hindus, though the differences between the two are only in length and fit.

The fitting of your sherwani is the most important aspect of your entire search for your special day. You can't afford to make a mistake with this one; no matter how expensive your sherwani is, it won't look flattering if it doesn't fit your body properly. That is why it is critical to invest the necessary amount of time and money to ensure the proper fit. Try having your sherwani tailored to your body measurements, which will make you look slimmer, more masculine, and dapper all at the same time.

To add a touch of royalty to your look, accessorise your sherwani with a turban, neckpiece, brooch, or cuff links.

Jodhpur Suit/Bandhgala Suit

The Jodhpur suit, also known as a bandhgala suit over cotton vest, was a formal attire worn by aristocrats in the Indian state of Jodhpur. It is made up of a vest, coat, and trousers, giving it a distinct appearance that allows it to be identified instantly. Depending on your preference, you'll wear a jodhpur suit that falls below or above the knee. A shorter Jodhpur suit looks great with a dhoti, while an extended one looks great with a churidar pyjama. If you want to appear royal and luxurious, choose luxurious fabrics such as velvet or brocade, but if you want to keep it modern, cotton or silk are the best options.

We believe we have provided a wide range of outfit ideas for you to rock this wedding season. Follow this guide and you will not make any mistakes! Remember to always wear outfits that suit your mood and make you look like a magnet.
