When it comes to wedding, the Indian groom is still desi at heart. Even in the world of tuxedos and customised suits, sherwanis have a special place for itself. Let’s have a look at the modern day sherwanis for the desi Indian groom.

Indian weddings are known for the grandeur, colours and glittering presence through various dresses. Different culture, rituals and traditions followed during Indian weddings make the ceremony more special and unique. Every Indian wedding involves plethora of ceremonies that result in large get-togethers, dinners and parties. This calls for a huge requirement of different style of dressing for each occasion and therefore demands for a large selection of shopping.
Sherwani is the most popular choice for a groom, as it represents style and elegance. It has gained popularity as the most preferred wedding attire.

The credit for this universal popularity also goes to Indian designers who have turned a sherwani into the most coveted ethnic men’s wear around the world. Experimental designs and varied styles and trends in latest Indian men’s sherwani suit are dominating the fashion scene for men’s ethnic wear.

A Talk about the Trends
There are a number of fabrics that can be used to create a bridegroom’s sherwani. Different types of silk and poly-silk were widely used for sherwanis, but now apart from silks, many new fabrics are being preferred by designers to create Indian men’s wedding outfit. This has also hugely contributed in the growing popularity of designer sherwanis. Grooms sherwanis are usually heavily embellished and ooze out an elite ethnic aura. Various types of Indian embroideries and embellishments like sequins, kundans, pearls, crystals and stones are used to adorn sherwanis. “The kind of work that is usually used on designer sherwanis is sequins, zari, colour threads, metallic threads, beads, nakshi, gota”, says Bangalore-based designer Ramesh Dembla.
There is a new trend of the Indo-western sherwani. This experiment has become hugely popular among Indian men and their experimentation only grows with fantastic designs in result. “Jodhpuri suits, jacket-style sherwanis, mughal-style sherwanis and pathani style sherwanis are trending”, says Dembla. One of the hit Indo-western designs is the Jodhpuri suits. The blend of royal Rajasthani embroidery with western experiments has made this line of sherwanis popular for formal, wedding and other traditional occasions. Crystals, kundans, expensive stones, pearls and sequins are embellished and embroidered in many sherwani designs. Zardozi, expensive stones and sequins are worked onto cuffs and collars while floral and Persian designs are in popularity.
Indo-western sherwani designs highlight fabrics and colours that represent the fusion of modernity and ethnicity. The fabric range includes finely woven silk and brocades; dipped in shades of olive green, turquoise, navy, ivory and beige. Indo-western sherwani with high neck collar with antique buttons, antique brooch, when paired with patiala pant or dhoti pants create an extraordinary look; perfect for reception and cocktail party.

Typing in the Varieties
Here’s a look at the different types of sherwanis that are in demand:

Pathani Sherwani: This style combines the ethnic sophistication of Pathani pattern with a heavily embroidered jacket. The jacket style is the prime feature of a Pathani sherwani. The sherwani features well crafted collar and border design on cuffs. A lot of threadwork is used which makes the Pathani sherwanis look more appealing.
It features dense thread work and adds a grand look to the entire piece. “The threadwork pattern requires a lot of expertise and skill. These threads are available in a wide range and in different shades. Multi-colour threads are also used to create gorgeous patterns on the jacket of the Pathani sherwani”, says Bangalore-based designer Namrata G.

Jodhpuri Suits: Jodhpuri suits look like the western three pieces. The jacket has a Nehru collar attached to it. “The jacket comes with exquisite designing and embroidery that gives a very regal and splendid look to the attire”, says designer Chandrika. You can go for various colors, as per your personal taste and also your better half’s choice of outfit. This garment is perfect for wedding and reception parties.

Jacket-style Suits: The jacket sherwani is in vogue. The sherwani comprises three piece set which includes the sherwani (or the inner piece), the jacket and the churidar. While on the one hand, the sherwani has a traditional look, on the other hand, it also features chic classiness. Generally, this type of sherwani fits well on slim and tall people. However, if the measurements are expertly taken, the jacket-sherwani can look elegant on other body types as well. In fact, since the designs and patterns are done lengthwise even people with lesser height can look taller dressed in a jacket-sherwani.
Zardozi and resham thread works are usually done on this type of sherwani. “This range of sherwani is exclusively hand embroidered with zardozi and dabka work is teamed up with collar and patch work motifs to adorn the look of the wearer”, Chandrika states.

Mughal-style Sherwani: Mughal style gets it’s predilection from the Mughal dynasty. In Mughal-style sherwani, upper half of the dress fits perfectly on the body and the lower part is in a frock shape with large circumference. The length of this style sherwani is few centimeters above the knee.
Another element of this style is a sleeveless jacket; this is worn on top of the sherwani. The jacket would be a little longer than the sherwani and is heavily embroidered. “This sherwani style is complemented with a churidar pyjama; multiple folds in the churidar is a distinct characteristic”, says Dembla.

Accessorising the Right Way
Along with the trendy sherwanis care should also be taken to pair these with the right accessories. For the wedding day, a groom can choose a wedding sherwani enriched in hues like, maroon, beige, off white and ivory. On the other hand, reception ceremony is all about a contemporary urban chic look; hence the groom can wear a well tailored Indo-western sherwani. Expensive and designer stoles are preferred by many as they go with the sherwani. Many sherwani designs include these stoles in the package.
Being the perfect fusion of Indian and western wear, Indo-western sherwanis worn by the groom enhance his personality and overall appeal. A groom sporting an Indo-western sherwani will show his unique sense of style, confidence and sophistication. There is a huge demand for designer wedding sherwanis. The designer sherwanis are available in a variety of styles, patterns, colours and designs which can be customised according to the preference of the groom.
According to the latest trends, the grooms-to-be choose to wear traditional Indian outfits like churidar kurtas, Pathani suits with crushed stoles for pre-wedding ceremonies like engagement. With new fashion trends getting launched every season, the wedding market is buzzing with emerging trends for the grooms.
