In India, the wedding rituals and clothes make the wedding as much as that of the bride and her groom. Both look their splendid best in gorgeous clothes. Not just the couple, but the guests attending the family and the relatives are often seen dressed up to the teeth. The bride is dressed up in auspicious colors, whereas the bridegroom is dressed to exude a regal aura. Many communities in the Northern parts, the bridegroom usually wears a sherwani, jodhpur suit, or a western suit The groom’s face is covered with a veiled with a curtain of flowers which is called sehra in the North, which is not the custom elsewhere. It is also customary to wear a taqiuahall through the ceremony in Muslim marriages. Many prefer to wear a Kurta. A Kurta can be worn with Salwar, or Dhoti. A dazzling series of ensemble for bridegrooms include majestic sherwani, blended Indo-western suit and ethnic Jodhpuri suit. The exquisite shirts, coats, and jackets are designed with extra care and touch to bring out the magnanimity out of the bridegroom on the marriage day. Precious embellishments are studded into the collars and the cuffs of the bridegroom’s dress. Available both in simple cottons and splendid, royal raw silk, these kurta Pyjamas are preferred mostly by the bridegrooms.
In the hindu culture marriage continues for several days so it is important for both bride as well as groom to look perfect in each of the ritual that is to be folowed. Grooming up a groom is as important as the grooming up of a bride. All these dresses and the color symbolize the meaning of marriage and the period that follows it. Indian wedding is one that gives more importance to details like different rituals and the various attires one wears to attend them.
