The Most Unique Sherwanis For The New Age Groom
Thankfully, groom wear has been evolving a lot, mainly because of the hard work by several designers who want to push the envelope and offer something unique and exciting for men to also look forward to on their wedding day, and for every function in between. Here are the most distinctive sherwanis for men’s wedding styling that a modern groom can choose for his big day.
Pair this sherwani with a tonal kurta inside, preferably in silk, and churidar bottoms that match. The all cream look is perfect, but feel free to pick one of the pastel colours in the embroidery on the sherwani and wear an inner kurta or pants of that same hue.
Accessorising this piece can be kept minimal, so the rich embroidery can take center stage. Keep bottoms and kurta an inky black colour, and pair with black chelsea boots to add a slight modern twist to this sherwani which is the perfect blend of Indian handiwork and modern design concepts.

The contrasting rainbow hued button add some youth and personality to the sherwani, which is tailored from fine khadi — a great option for wintry wedding days and for the sangeet before you dive into married life. A contrasting pocket square adds to the appeal of this outfit and a black churidar would complete the ensemble well.
Champagne and ivory are quintessential colours for a groom, and it’s hard to go wrong with them. Keep everything else in the same colour palette, which means the kurta, bottoms, and other accessories can range from ivory to gold. This sherwani is perfect for the wedding day, but is also good for a reception.
This fabulous piece is ideal for an engagement ceremony or the big wedding day too. For grooms who eschew glitter and shine, this is the right choice, and tonal cream pants and a kurta, with tan loafers would make for a great combination.
The embroidery takes these traditional shapes and reimagines them on the piece. The diaphanous organza dupatta adds the air of regality to the outfit, so you look like the king that you are on your wedding day.

The construction and design of this sherwani is what sets it apart. It fits perfectly and will suit several body types. Pair this with a contrasting safa, a kalgi and a groom’s necklace for the full groom look.
Set off the heavy jewellery, rings, and embellished sherwani with a surprising ivory silk safa just like the one in the image, and be the prince of the ball.
A medley of amazing texture, patterns, and form at play, these sherwanis by Tarun Tahiliani are adorned with traditional chikankari embroidery, with a printed textured base and kasab highlights all over. Chikankari is inspired by the Mughal architecture of Itmad-ud-Daulah.
The intricate motifs on the sherwani are hand painted by skilled artists and then hand-embroidered in traditional chikan stitches and further layered with sequins and petals on silk tissue georgette. All styles are finished meticulously with hand sewn crystal drops and pearls hanging off them. Pair the beige sherwani with a peach or blush pink palette of colours in the kurta and churidar for a polished look.
With these distinctive sherwanis to choose from, the modern groom can very easily choose which route he wants to take: classic, vintage, metallic, or go all out in regalia. To make things easier for groom styling and for the family too, contact CLAD to hear about all our packages.
