When it comes to dressing for your own wedding, we want you to put your best foot forward. From the epic Sehra and sherwani clad Dulha avatar to the dapper man in a Tuxedo, we want to make sure you’ve got it perfect before you walk hand in hand with the dazzling bride. That’s why we’ve put together some profound tips from the wedding fashion styling expert Ishleen Kaur. She’s penned down all the nifty details on how you can get your style quotient right on your big day.

1. Try To Harmoniously Blend In With The Bride’s Style.

Paying attention to the bride’s attire is foremost. While it’s a great opportunity to show your fashion style by wearing something offbeat, it’s of equal importance that you take style cues from your bride. The photographs turn out beautiful, the coordination makes you stand out as a well suited couple, and besides you want to make sure that you don’t look out of place. The decor, the place and the couple need to be in sync.

2. Cuff Links, Buttons & Tie Pins Are Accessories You Cannot Ignore.

From the details like the watch and jewellery, cuff links, pocket squares, buttons and tie pins, you can go adventurous with these accessories and they just cannot be forgotten. Pay attention to the design, material and style so that they’re adding value to your look while maintaining a thin line between “over doing” it. A large brooch, a massive belt or a necklace that attracts all the focus isn’t the point, right?

3. Fit Is The Key, Trials Are A Must.

Since, most of the outfits are customised to your fit, just like the bride’s outfit trials, you need to make sure that your trials are done in time too. Even if you’re going for a regular fit or a slim fit,  you need to try the outfit and see if the tailor is able to mark that distinction while being able to tell the difference in silhouettes clearly. This becomes even more crucial if you are going through an exercise regime before the wedding. The fit tends to alter so make sure to do the last trial, one week before the wedding.

4. Pick Out Different Colors For The Various Occasions.

While, we’ve already stated how crucial it is to have a theme in mind while picking out your outfits. If it’s a day affair, choose colors that add radiance and not dull your look. Pick prints that are vibrant yet mellow. Picking a dark hue like a burgundy or an emerald for the day may seem out of place but the same colors would work magically for an evening or a night event.

5. The Length Of Sleeves, Trousers, Sherwani And The Tux Need To Be Sharp.

For men, it’s all about the cuts. We cannot emphasise enough on this parameter, but it can make or break your game. The shirt needs to be cuffed at the wrist and the jacket needs to show off the cuff just a little bit. Whereas the wrist is slightly more visible in a Sherwani to allow movement. The trousers shouldn’t start bunching up in folds but also cannot be short to reveal the ankles too much. The churidar or the pyjamas can be fitted or loose depending on the silhouette you are vying for. Basically, it’s critical.
