Over the years, white has come out as one of the top favourite colours for Indian weddings! Who would have thought, right?
The modern-day man is no longer about fashion faux-pas. Not just the bride but the groom himself carefully goes through the process of wedding functions. Given the number of planned pre-wedding ceremonies and an array of photographers documenting the day, grooms can’t get away without dressing up to the mark. Now that there are colour-coordinated brides and grooms, the venue has a theme, and so do the guests.
