This is typical of North Indian and Punjabi weddings. Sherwani is long coat, buttoned up in front with Nehru collars. The sherwani falls well below the knees, and looks elegant especially if the groom is tall, and yes, the physique is perfect. Traditionally, the sherwanis worn are off-white.
Lately, color has made its foray into sherwanis. If you dare to be different, try out black and other darker shades. Sherwanis can be of various types – the Peshawri and the Baloochi, and are usually embellished with embroidery and zardozi work. The groom’s sherwani is incomplete without the ghatcholas, flowing kurtas with churidars and jooties or Indian sandals.
The Turban or Safa: Safa and wedding turbans are traditional headgear worn by the men of both the sides during wedding. Wedding safa is a necessary part of a traditionally dressed groom – a must groom attire. The colorful safas are made of various materials – chunari or sheer cotton drape, with or without zari work, and ghatcholas. The groom’s safa is traditionally red in color, and it goes well with the off-white sherwanis.
