Style tips for wedding festivities

Indian weddings are over the top and that's the way we like it. All that dancing and of course the mouth-watering food make everyone wait for the wedding ceremonies. However, a major concern of wedding season is deciding clothes.

Here is an expert opinion on what to wear for different days of the festivities and what to avoid. 

 Mehendi

* Play it Safe: A classic kurta pyjama in black or a yellow kurta paired with white churidaar. A Kurta with a pyjama has always been a classic look when it comes to choosing outfits for the more traditional events. But that was when men didn't think out of the box and played safe. 

* Bold yet smooth: Nehru jacket paired with a kurta and bleaches have made a dashing entry into men's fashion. First sported by Saif Ali Khan, this look is definitely a head turner. 

* Fashion faux pas: A shirt and pant are good to be worn at work and not your best friend's mehendi. Keep them with your pile of office clothes. 

 Cocktail/Sangeet

* Play it Safe: Nehru jacket paired with a shirt and pants is something that can be worn on mehendi or day events but a cocktail demands something sharp.

* Bold yet smooth: How about a kurta paired with an embroidered shawl? A big yes for the cooler days! Or you can even choose to get a custom-made Bandgala with an excellent fit that does justice to all your hardwork at the gym. 

* Fashion faux pas: Denims paired with oxford shirts/jackets give you a smart casual look and will not help you make a statement on formal occasions.

Wedding gala

* Play it safe/Grey matter: Since time immemorial, men in India have been choosing sherwani with churidaar as their wedding outfits. From grooms to the best men, this is a run-of-the-mill option that is a safe bet. 

* Bold yet smooth: Whether it's a matching suit or a jacket and trousers, the Double Breasted suit is a great way to tell the world that you're serious when it comes to style but focus on the fit and since it's the wedding, take the things up a notch by accessorising your look-think pocket squares, lapel pins or bow ties. 

* Fashion faux pas: It has never been acceptable to wear jeans to a wedding, and it never will be. And don't even think about showing up to the ceremony with a leather jacket on...keep them when you go out dancing on a Saturday night.
