The wedding season in India has started. But before the wedding there is the engagement party. They say that the engagement is the prequel to the wedding. You can also call it the dress rehearsal for the big fat Indian wedding. So, we must ensure that the groom wears something that will do justice to the grand party of the engagement before the wedding.
Men always complain that their choices are so much more limited than their beautiful brides. The brides-to-be has a hundred different colours and style to choose her bridal outfit. But, the grooms-to-be can hardly afford to be so selective about their clothes. Their choice is not nearly enough as compared to their better halves.
Agreed, but lets look at the silver lining of the cloud. It is winter and men can actually turn a winter wedding to their advantage. They can choose comfortable warm clothes while their brides shiver in revealing lehenga cholis and sarees. Okay, guys bring out your best Western formal style for the engagement before the wedding. The groom must wear traditional clothes for the wedding, but the engagement clothes are left to his discretion. So, this is the chance to show off your tuxedos and dress coats.
Another advantage that grooms have over the brides is the choice of colour. You will rarely see a bride dressed in black, brown and dark blues. But, the groom can wear which ever colour he wants. There is no taboo on black for the groom. Solid black Sherwani or safari suit is just the right outfit for an Indian wedding in the winter. After all, black is a winter colour.
Here are some outfits that are really hot on the fashion meter for men. Grooms can choose clothes like these for their engagement.
