Weddings hold a very important place in the culture and traditions of an Indian household. The ceremonies and rituals have a meaning for everything; the meaning is to stay together for the rest of the lives. All immediate and distant family and friends gather for this auspicious occasion and bless the bride and the groom for a healthy and wealthy life. For such, an occasion dressing up right is a must. Apart from dressing up, nowadays it is important to accessorize as well. Usually in older times, accessorizing was a woman’s game, men seldom accessorized their outfits. But the time has changed now and we lots of grooms experimenting with accessories.
It is essential to choose the right pair of cufflinks that suits the wedding outfit. Cufflinks of semi-precious stones and diamond add elegance and style to the dress. The cufflinks should not be too gaudy rather it should enhance the overall beauty of the outfit.
Pagdi or Turban
Marriages in Hindu religion mandate the groom to wear a turban during all the rituals. Today there are more than hundred types of turbans that have various designs, colors and stones. The turban should be matching with the color of the dhoti or pajama the groom wears. For elegance and royalty, turban embedded with semi-precious stones are the best. But it should be noted that if the outfit is extra dressy then the turban should be selected in such a way that it brings some subtleness to the overall look and vice versa.
A long drape is usually worn along with a sherwani. Such types of drapes were worn by the emperors of the Mughal dynasty. The color of the drape is usually contrasting to the color of the sherwani. The drape can be either draped around the neck or worn on one shoulder that wraps around the other hand, going via the waist. This again signifies royalty.
