Grooms preparing for an Indian style wedding have the luxury of choice when it comes to choosing their wedding attire.The sherwani is a traditional Indian-style groom wear originating from the royal families in the North of India.
The sherwani consists of a streamlined jacket that extends knee length and is sometimes longer. The jacket is uniquely designed with a Nehru-style collar and buttoned down the front. The Sherwani is usually teamed up with a tight fitting churidar, Jodhpurs, and a shawl draped over one or both shoulders. To complete the regal look the groom should wear jooties or traditional Indian footwear which are usually available in matching colours.
The sherwani usually features unique embroidery work like zardozi. Ari or zardozi is an ancient form of embroidery introduced during the Mughal era and has become a well-known, fashionable hand embroidery.
The modern day groom can also select from a myriad of colours to blend in with the brides outfit as well as the decorated mandap.
Modern day males now have the luxury of choice when it comes to dressing up in stylish and traditional outfits.
Not only is there variety in the cut of the fabric as well as the nature of the fabric but also the wide range of colours and the amount of work that has gone into each piece distinguishing one sherwani from the next.
A maroon coloured silk sherwani in maharaja style, which is embroidered with a golden thread is very distinct from the royal blue colored sherwani with zardozi work and white churidars.
The beige colored royal sherwani in rich silk, with extra special handwork could be worn at one formal occasion, while the heavily embroidered sherwani in gold and copper shades would be more suitable at another formal event.
Ideal for a formal wedding and reception, the Sherwani is undoubtedly glamorous and sophisticated and provides the ultimate Mughal look on your special day.
