Ah, the day is here. But you wish to take the road less travelled by – A Court Wedding. Well, we appreciate your thoughts so much. Many celebrities like Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, John Abraham and Runchal, Ranvir Shorey and Konkona Sen Sharma, Sagarika Ghatge and Zaheer Khan opted for private ceremonies at the court, in the presence of their dear ones. It is your day and you get to decide what works best for both of you. But personal events never translate into basic clothing. So, today our Wedding Affair team helps you amplify your wedding look by enlisting some easy-to-achieve and make-a-mark tips that will help keep you neck to neck with your beautiful, because boy, she has something eccentric planned for herself!

Here are some ideas to make your Big Day outfit simple yet, satisfying –

  • Keep it Minimal

Less is more. We have heard this saying so many times, and we follow it religiously. Grooms do not wish to dress up much, but for weddings, they are not an exception. You will definitely not sport a sherwani or a three-piece suit for your ceremony given the setup, but you must also not opt for a basic shirt and trouser. What we mean by minimal is to opt for lighter versions of heavy outfits. If three-piece is a no no, try wearing the classic nehru jacket with well fitted chino pants or trousers. Pair this combo with semi-formal shoes that match with your jacket, and you are good to go.

  • Sync your Look with your Partner

Who says outfit coordination is only meant for a lavish wedding? Now is your time to match your outfit with your bride, or color-coordinate it to show how much you adore them. For grooms who find this to be over the top, this is what you can do. Match one item of your outfit with your partner. You can go for matching face masks, outfits of the same color family, or maybe you both could wear the same pair of white sneakers!

  • Maintain a Clean Hairdo
Saif Ali Khan definitely knows how to slay the sleek back hair look.

Not only are you getting married in an official setup, but you are getting married! Yes, a court wedding seems to be low-key, but nobody wants to see a mess on your head. Opt for a clean swept-back hair, or you could also gel them in the evergreen 90s look. For bearded men, trim your stub to a level at which it can be handled and does not get in a way. Setting it up through hairspray is another alternative. Men with turbans always have an option to sport a royal and bright turban that accentuates and a spark on your face.

  • Go Indian

Many men heading for their wedding would be willing to keep their outlook formal. We say, try something different. These days a light colored kurta with minimum mirror or bling detailing is much in fashion. You can pair it up with churidar pajamis, or even solid colored dhotis. Juttis or kolhapuri chappals work best with this kind of look. Men willing to make a power move could add a fancy stole to their outfits in hot weather, and pashmina shawls in cold days.

  • Give a Thought to your Outfit

What’s better than attaching a memory to your big day outfit? Well, this will require a little effort, but trust us, it will be worth it! Think of a setup where you met your bride and she loved what you wore. It could be your first meeting, first date, or probably something that they gifted you. You could wear the same piece, or find something similar to it too. You could also revamp the clothing item or personalize your fit. Grooms can get the name of their partner, or their initials, or even the date of their wedding engraved on their outfit, to mark the significance of the day.

  • Do not Forget to Accessorize
Accessories can completely change your look.

A fact that you cannot ignore is that men sport accessories way better than women. And this is the reason why we do not want our men to not give a cute little competition to our brides on their special day. Ditch smart watches and for a classic dial watch.Bracelets go well with watches not only for women, but the other gender too. Wear a brooch over your jacket or kurta. Wear a single-layered pearl necklace, instead of choosing a metal chain. Sunglasses are a great way to up your fashion game.

We know this is huge, and that you do not want to catch the public eye; hence, a personal wedding affair, which is totally fine. But that doesn’t mean that you will just give away all the effort and show up sober, sure your bride would not want that. We hope you imbibe these style tips into your day plan and everything goes well and happy for you and your significant other. *touches wood*.
