Congrats on your wedding, and thanks for writing in! You don’t need to be confused about your wedding outfits at all. Because we have already written at length about the latest trends in grooms wedding dresses, and also about what to wear on the different wedding ceremonies.
Groom’s Dresses for Indian Wedding
Sherwanis, bundhgalas with chooridar or dhoti, suits and tuxedos are the best options for weddings for groom.

I personally prefer a sherwani, and since you’re from the land of the kings, choose a royal color like ruby, crimson, sapphire or gold. And of course, you can match the embroidery or accent color to the bride’s dress. Select a sherwani or tux that best suits your skin tone and height, and of course, go for the latest trends like sleeve embroidery, statement motifs and contrasting dupatta.

For the other functions, kurtas are the best options for smaller family functions. Wear silk kurta with churidar or dhoti. For larger functions like sangeet or religious ceremonies, wear bundhgalas or a heavy kurta. Suits are the best options for cocktail parties.

It’s best to have an extra kurta and matching dupatta for those unexpected gatherings or dinner parties.
