The dulha is often faced with a predicament because while the internet is full of content on tips to select a bridal dress, it offers very little advice for the desi, Pakistani man and his attire. Though there’re some articles that talk about men’s western wedding suits, only a handful of them discuss the various options the Pakistani man has when it comes to his outfits for his wedding.
But you don’t have to worry anymore because we have taken it upon ourselves to tell you about some of the most popular outfits that you can consider wearing on any of your shaadi events. We understand that men too, have the need to look handsome and dashing at their wedding; keeping that need in mind, we’ve discussed the various options available to you.
The Sensational Sherwani
A sherwani is an ever green Pakistani cultural men’s wear that can’t go out of fashion no matter what. This traditional dress has been worn to dawats and formal events in the yesteryears. However, it has now become a necessity for the desi dulha at his wedding. Even though most people wear an embroidered sherwani at their baraat, it can be worn on a valima or even a mehendi. This long coat can be paired with a churidar pajama, straight pajama or pants, depending on the event’s nature. If you’re looking for a traditional look, pair the sherwani with a kulla or turban and you’ll steal the show.
The Witty Waistcoat
The waistcoat or the ‘desi koti’,is the ultimate option for the cool groom. This traditional waistcoat looks best with a kameez or kurta, but can also be paired with a shirt. You can find various designers who design kotis that have digital print or embroidery over them and look graceful. The koti is a must have if you’re attending an informal event such as mehendi or mayoun.
The Simple Shalwar Kameez
One thing that can never go out of fashion is the simple yet trendy shalwar kameez. This is the ‘it’ attire if you’re getting nikkahfied and are having a small gathering of friends and family. The shirt or kameez comes with either a shirt collar or a sherwani collar and you can ask to the designer to alter the amount of embroidery done on the fabric. Shalwar kameez paired with the right sandal or even shoes (if you’re feeling especially adventurous) will stun your dulhan and make her forget all her preparations for the wedding!
The Killer Kurta
Another good option for a dulha who doesn’t want to overdo his wedding outfit is the kurta pajama. This traditional dress is usually worn on mehendis or mayouns and is combined with a stole that looks absolutely amazing. All you need to complete this look is a khussa and some killer macho attitude. Kurtas look best in churidar or straight pajamas and are most comfortable when you plan to dance the night away and enjoy your freedom just before you get hitched.
The Flattering Formal Suit
Something we picked up from the west, is the formal suit. This groom suit is ideal for valima receptions where the event is formal and you want to look extravagant. However, formal suits don’t necessarily have to be the dull black and white attire that you wear to your office meetings; in fact, try going for a unique look by combining it with velvet or printed coats, to stand out. You can wear these suits with or without a waistcoat. When choosing a suit, be mindful of the fabric used because this is essentially what will make you stand out.
The Ingenious Indo Western Jacket
Last on our list of ideas for dulhas’ wedding outfits is the indo western jacket style. This is trendy attire— you can call it an informal suit that can be worn on any occasion. This attire is a mixture of the Eastern and western culture and is essential when you want to break free from wearing the cookie-cutter sherwani or formal suit. Talk to your designer about the type of fabric, design and style you want and get ready to see something funky and fabulous.
