We know that grooms would love to make a style statement at their wedding with attire that matches up to the splendour of the bride’s ensemble. Easier said than done given the bride is dressed in her sparkling best. This is when the men’s Indian wedding sherwani comes to the rescue.

The sherwani is a long coat with a mandarin collar and buttons on the front. Designed to complement Indian bridal wear, men’s Indian wedding sherwanis are adorned with embellishments and designed to beautifully balance traditional design and contemporary style.  

What Kind of Sherwani to Choose

Often the sherwani is off-white or whiten in colour with embellishments around the placket and the collar. However, of late, colour has made its foray in men’s Indian wedding wear and in keeping with the trend, you can find sherwanis in a bevy of colours. Maroon, indigo and yellow are great colour options for men’s Indian wedding sherwani.


You could choose a sherwani that falls below the knees or above, depending on the kind of style you prefer. A sherwani falling below the knee can be teamed with a churidar pyjama or a pair of jodhpuris. A shorter sherwani makes for a classic combination with the Indian dhoti, giving you look that is unbeatable by any other Indian wedding attire.

Material and Embellishments

If you are gunning for the rich and opulent look, then pick lush fabrics like velvet or brocade. If you want to keep the look elegant and contemporary, then go in for cotton-silk or silk sherwanis.

Men’s Indian wedding sherwanis come with embellishments that can be as simple as thread work around the collar to all over zardosi embroidery to create an outfit fit for the king. Take your pick by choosing what is most comfortable and what will complement the bridal attire the best. You don’t want to go overboard with the embellishments and end up taking away the attention from the bride!

How to Style the Sherwani

While it is easy to buy a great looking sherwani, the catch lies in styling it properly to get the right look. When styled well, a sherwani can give you a royal look on your wedding day. Men’s Indian wedding sherwani is best paired with a contrasting churidar salwar or jodhpuris and an elegant dupatta. If the sherwani is short, then opt for dhoti style pants or Patiala salwar for an out and out traditional look.

Beige is a good option when it comes to picking bottom wear for a sherwani – it goes well with most colours.

Choose the dupatta in a rich fabric like silk with minimal embellishments if your sherwani is already busy with lots of design. Wear it over one shoulder or drape it around the neck for an elegant look.

Last but not the least, do not forget the mojris or the handcrafted footwear with embroidery that will help you complete the look. Pick a well crafted pair in a dark colour to contrast well against your salwar.

If your wedding rituals include the turban, it would be a great idea to get one in a colour matching your sherwani for a well-matched look. 

Men's Indian wedding sherwani will help you attain that elusive 'wedding look' that a suit would perhaps not offer. A sherwani is rich, festive, gets you all the eyeballs to give stiff competition to the bride on your wedding day.
