When it comes to an Indian wedding, sherwanis counts amongst the most popular dressing options for the groom. A traditional attire of Indian men, it was initially worn only by the males in Uttar Pradesh, along with the city of Hyderabad. However, with the passing time, sherwani came to be the ultimate wedding attire, wooing grooms in almost all the parts of India. Quite similar to an Achkan, or a doublet, it gives the perfect 'traditional' look to an Indian man. Combine it with a stole, mojris and Bandhni pagri and you are all set to make heads turn in your own wedding.

Sherwani is somewhat similar to a coat, but extends down till the knees (sometimes even lower). One of the traditional garments worn in South Asia, especially India, it is worn on top of a kurta, a loose shirt that also reaches till the knees. A sherwani can be paired with a churidar, khara pajama or a shalwar. At times, it might be worn along with a dhoti as well. The dress is made from heavy suiting fabrics, has a close body fit and is fastened in the front, with buttons. Many-a-times, there is a lining underneath the sherwani.
