The grooms of this wedding season are making a huge statement with stunning, unique and splendid groom accessories. Groom accessories can do wonders in enhancing a groom’s look and giving that extra and perfect touch of royalty and glamour. Believe it or not, a statement piece of groom jewelry can give your attire a depth that you had never just imagined.
Starting from the beloved Sehra to the royal Kalgi, grooms now have a lot of options to choose from including necklaces, sunglasses and what not!
The Quintessential Sehra
A Sehra is a headdress worn by the groom on his wedding day. It has garland hangings that cover the face of the groom. Wearing a Sehra adds royal splendor to the groom’s overall look and also adds an element of mystery as his face is veiled much like the bride’s face. Nowadays, a Sehra is available as strings of zari, pearls, stones, flowers, and other embellishments. Choose one that compliments your outfit.
Safa or Turban is a single piece of cloth wrapped around the head and bejeweled with pretty bling ornaments. It’s an Indian wedding tradition signifying the groom’s respect and it looks royal. A safa is one accessory with which you can experiment a lot with. You can either color coordinate it with the color of your attire or go for a completely different color to set a contrast. You can even choose to go for a solid color safas or printed safas like floral safas.
A Kalgi enhances the beauty and looks of the groom’s Pagdi or Safa. Mother or the sister of the groom pins a kalgi in the turban of the groom as a mark of royalty. Kalgis are available in many designs. Some even have attached feathers and strings of pearls.
Hindu kings loved their ladi haars. It is a kind of necklace which is made with different strings of precious and semi-precious stones. Some ladi haars have beautiful pearls as well. These are the male counterparts of raani haars that North-Indian women love to wear. You won’t get over these groom accessories too!
Never underestimate the power of a flattering pair of sunglasses. If you are hosting a day wedding then sunglasses should be your one of the go-to groom accessories. They will instantly add glamour to your look.
