Royal Kurta Churidar
Kurta chudidar is different from traditional kurta salwar in terms of the work on it. The kurta has work of crystals, intricate embroidery or work of sequins and stone, which gives it a heavy look. Even the actors of tinsel town are in love with this style. If you have picked a kurta of less work then you can add embellishment like a brooch to give it your own touch.

Sherwanis are a common choice of Indian grooms, especially for their wedding day. It is often worn in the most common color, off-white. But say thanks to our actors and designers for adding more colours to this outfit. This ethnic wear now comes in various colors like maroon, dark blue, black and much more. Make sure the length of the sherwani is till your knees and is well-fitted. Sherwani looks best with contrast-coloured stoles, pagadi and mojris. Go for heavy embroidered or light-work, depending on your comfort level. But, avoid the plain ones, as they give a very dull and pale look.
If you want to wear something that is classy and modern at the same time, Achkan will be the perfect choice for you. The difference between achkan and sherwani lies in their length and fabric. Achkan’s are made of more lighter and finer fabrics, like chikan or linen. Thus, it is the best choice for a summer wedding. The embroidery on an achkan depends on its fabric. To enhance an achkan’s appeal, style it with a cool turban with dabka handwork and Punjabi juttis.
It is comfortable, stylish and can never go wrong. A tuxedo takes the minimal yet classy approach. The only thing to keep in mind while picking a tuxedo is the fitting, an inch tight or lose could ruin the entire outfit. If you are not comfortable with a Tuxedo, you suit up with a tie!
