Your Ammi and Abbu may have taken the load of deciding the venue for your wedding but choosing the right Muslim wedding dress can be a Herculean task.

All this pressure can become nerve-wracking when compounded with other wedding responsibilities.

The wedding dress that you choose is not merely an ensemble that you pick and put together to flaunt it on your big day, but it is an emotion and a memory that you are going to cherish forever as one of the crucial things that you take away from your D-day.

A traditional Lucknowi outfit, the Gharara is a popular Muslim wedding dress in South-East Asia. It consists of fitted trouser that flares gorgeously at the knee with an embellished band marking the division, and a short Kurti or Kameez. Ghararas have a distinctly feminine appearance and are not as cumbersome as the lehenga, making it a comfortable choice for Indian brides. Ghararas are a fashionable choice this wedding season.

For the Groom

1. Sherwani

Through the Barrel

Considered the favourite colour of Prophet Mohammed, green can be easily incorporated in Muslim dress for men simultaneously making a style statement. Green has also been one of the holy colours and for an auspicious occasion like the wedding, it fits well. Pair a classic off-white sherwani with buttoned front and ornate neckline with a green coloured velvety heavily embroidered dupatta for a truly regal look. Try some of these latest sherwani designs for quick inspiration. 

2. Purple Kurta

A sober and elegant look can be achieved with a deep purple kurta and churidar worn under an ornate knee-length beige jacket with intricate embroidery. The open front jacket gives you room to breathe giving you a mix of style and much-needed comfort to go through the long ceremonies for the groom. Pair a mid-thigh length kurta with an open front jacket of the same length. Complete the Indo-Western look with fitted pants instead of the regular churidar. The dapper look is an urban twist on the traditional Indian garb and will surely catch everyone’s eyes. This is a refreshing and appealing change from the usual sherwani in the Indian wedding scene.

3. Nehru jacket & White Pants


This modish Muslim wedding dress for men is a gem in men’s wear. A short dark-red Nehru jacket worn with off-white pants, this combination is a certain head turner.  The Western outfit with contrasting colour is glamorous and sophisticated. This ensemble is fit for a king and your bride will be speechless with admiration when she lays eyes on you. Pair it with brown leather shoes to complete the look.

Whether the ceremony is Muslim or Hindu, a wedding is nevertheless a union of two lovers. To make your nuptials memorable and doubly special do not skimp on the aesthetics. Choose the choicest garments that are well fitted and comfortable. Worn with confidence, even the simplest of clothes will appear kingly.
