On the wedding day and the events surrounding it, all eyes are on the bride and groom. Indian grooms are just as stylish and well-dressed as the brides. Their outfits, jewellery, and accessories are just as lavish as those worn by the brides. So, for all the grooms-to-be out there who want to look their best and make heads turn during their wedding, we've compiled a list of the top trends you should add to your checklist.

Gone are the days when grooms wore turbans or plain safas as part of their wedding attire. These days, you can incorporate some popping colours and embellishment to make a bold statement with your safa. Often grooms choose them in unusual colours, however, you should never forget that these safas should be in perfect tandem with the rest of your outfit.

A sarpech is a brooch-style ornament for the groom's safa or turban that literally translates to"screwed onto the front." It's also known as kalgi or kilangi, and can be worn with a printed or plain safa that matches your outfits. Choose between a solid gold piece or one encrusted with gemstones for a splash of colour. Vicky Kaushal wore a silk tissue safa with a handcrafted 18-karat-gold kilangi studded in emeralds, rose cut diamonds, quartz, and tourmalines.

Nothing speaks elegance like a string of pearls paired with a well-made sherwani. Pearl necklaces and kundan malas for grooms have become wedding essentials because they look great with pastel colours as well as rich, jewel-toned silk, brocade, or velvet fabrics. A pearl necklace with a diamond-studded clasp or a pendant set with rubies and emeralds can be worn by the groom. A satlada haar is a great option for the groom who doesn't mind standing out, while linked gold chains offer a traditional touch.

The Nehru jacket is one of the most fashionable outfits and a must-have for any Indian groom. You can wear a Nehru jacket with a sherwani, kurta pyjama, or a western-style pant shirt. In any case, it looks fantastic. You can also add a pocket square and a crystal brooch to the Nehru jacket to add a dash of bling. 

If you believe that only brides wear embellished outfits, you are mistaken. We want the grooms to be able to show off their personal style as well. Nowadays, grooms are bold enough to experiment with their preferences, and you should not be any different. The trend of embellished dupattas is catching on with Indian grooms. It's your chance to shine by wearing elegantly embellished stoles with your sherwani.

The aforementioned style trends for Indian grooms can be definitely considered for the upcoming wedding season. If you follow these fashion trends, you will undoubtedly stand out and create a lasting impression.
