Posted by shaadivows on April 14, 2009

As discussed earlier the Groom these days is very particular about his look and accessories play a big role in it.

pr-616The first accessory that comes to mind for the groom is the Nagras or Juttis, these are the most popular footwear options for the Indian Groom. Juttis come in different size, colour and design. The embellishments differ from embroidery to stone work. If the groom goes for Indian Attire Nagras are the best option available. The other options for Indian wear are Kolhapuri slippers, other traditional Indian slippers. Preferably one shouldn’t mix Indian wear with Western shoes and vice versa.

Cufflinks also play a very important part, especially when you adorn a jodhpuri suit. It should go with the entire look. One can choose from a wide range including diamond & semi-precious stone cufflinks.903_072

The turban or Pagdi special worn by the Hindu/Sardar grooms. It is usually made using different fabrics like leheriyas, tie dyes, or self woven brocades. The colour of the pagri should be in accordance with the wedding attire.

Sehra is an important part of the Indian Bride and groom accessory. It is a veil of flowers tied to the forehead, in front of the face. Sehra varies from one feet to full length sehra.

The unique traditional groom accessories are Swords and Knives that represent prestige and royalty. These knives are normally hand crafted and the groom holds them throughout the wedding process. A waistband or Kamar Patta is also very rarely seen in the weddings. They are traditional handcrafted materials that provide royal appeal to the wedding dress.
