When it comes to traditional wedding ceremonies, an ornate sherwani in raw silk or silk cotton looks the best. Among all father of the bride outfits, a sherwani is the most lavish outfit. We say lavish since most sherwanis are adorned with heavy embroidery or embellishments.
For a truly regal look, we suggest this maroon hand embroidered sherwani by WYCI that features an alluring all over pearl embroidery. Simply team the sherwani with a pair of black pyjamas and mojris and we guarantee that you a look that is rich and charismatic.
The difference between a sherwani and a kurta is that the latter is not as structured and can range from being simple to ostentatious. Being the most popular traditional garment among men, it is not surprising that we recommend the kurta as a father of the bride outfit option.
The one thing to remember while picking a kurta is to ensure that it fits well and is not droopy or loose. A silk kurta like this Dori embroidered kurta by WYCI will look simple and elegant. To jazz up the look further, simply throw in a golden dupatta over it!
At a time when the jacket or the ‘Modi’ jacket as it is popularly known has become a mainstream trend, it is but natural that it features on our father of the bride outfits list. A sleeveless fitted jacket can help knock some pounds off the look and also add a striking contrast to a plain kurta.
We have picked this stylish red denim linen waistcoat by WYCI to add that extra sartorial elegance to the kurta look. It goes best with plain kurtas in a complementing colour and if worn well, can even make the father look younger on the day of the daughter’s wedding!
