Gone are the days when much emphasis was being laid only on the bridal wear and men would not pay much importance to their attire for the wedding day. Today, groom also wants to look his perfect self on his wedding day. It is not women alone who understand the importance of marriage and wedding preparations but men too happen to give a lot of time for getting all the arrangements right.
Dressing up perfectly for the special occasion is a common trend followed by most grooms across different cultures, be it an Indian marriage, American wedding, Hindu marriage, European wedding, Muslim marriage or a Bangladeshi marriage. Although it is true that the bridal attire still gets most of the attention in a wedding but even men today do not want to leave any stone unturned to coordinate their look with the bride and the wedding theme. One special wedding memory that I can recall related to wedding dress for groom is the marriage of my Bangladeshi friend- Fayaz Sheikh.
Fayaz was tying the knot with Sanjeeda Ali- a pretty girl that his parents had found for him by searching the popular Bangladeshi matrimonial websites. The increasing importance attached to finding soul mate with the help of the Internet has led to the recent spurt in the number of Bangladeshi marriage websites in the present day world. Coming back to Fayaz’s wedding, he was very particular about getting the right wedding attire for the D-day. He wanted an elegantly designed sherwani and for that he spent several days scouting for the right outfit that flaunted intricate and brilliant workmanship.
After much browsing and scouting local shops, Fayaz decided to check out the designer stores to get the right blend of sherwani with modern cuts and designs combined with some traditional prints. Finally after several days of search, he selected a sherwani that was beautifully decorated with zari, kasab zardosi work and dabka. It had hand embroidery done with mandarin collar that accentuated his personality on the wedding day and was well-suited for his arranged marriage. The mix of hand and machine embroidery added a touch of elegance to his appearance.
Fayaz also made sure that he gets the right accessories to go well with his wedding attire. Use of right accessories such as a cravet and a broach added individualism and gave a distinctive class to his style. Individualized accessories such as gold-plated watch, matching footwear and kantha makes the groom look the best on his D-day. He got instant recognition for his wedding attire and looked fabulous on his wedding day. The bride also looked gorgeous with her painstakingly selected bridal jewelry and attire. Together they made one of the most beautiful and stylish couple and many people circulated their pictures on Facebook and other networking sites. Needless to say, they are still getting much acclaimed publicity and attention from their friends and known ones.
With some thought and time being put for selecting the right wedding attire, grooms in Bangladeshi weddings can match their style with their brides and steal the show.
