Understanding the Significance of a Sherwani


The sherwani holds a special place in Indian groom fashion. It symbolizes elegance, tradition, and grace, making it a timeless choice for the groom's ensemble. With its regal silhouette and intricate detailing, the sherwani exudes sophistication and class.


It represents the groom's role as a prince on his wedding day, standing tall and commanding attention. The significance of the sherwani lies not only in its visual appeal but also in the cultural and historical significance it carries. It embodies the richness of Indian traditions, reflecting the groom's heritage and family lineage.

Reflecting on Your Personal Style


Before embarking on your sherwani journey, take some time to reflect on your personal style. Your wedding day is a celebration of your unique identity, and your sherwani should reflect that. Are you inclined towards a traditional and classic look, or do you have a penchant for contemporary and fashion-forward designs?



Consider your preferences for colors, embellishments, and overall aesthetics. Are you drawn to bold and vibrant hues or do you prefer subtle and understated tones? Do you appreciate intricate and detailed embroidery or do you lean towards minimalistic patterns? Understanding your personal style will help guide you in selecting a sherwani that not only looks exquisite but also feels like an authentic representation of yourself.


Choosing the Right Silhouette


Once you've determined your personal style, it's time to explore the various silhouettes available for sherwanis. The silhouette refers to the overall shape and structure of the garment. From traditional cuts to contemporary fits, sherwanis come in a range of styles to suit every groom's preference. The classic straight-cut sherwani with a fitted bodice and a flared bottom is a popular choice for those seeking a timeless and regal look. It exudes a sense of grandeur and elegance, making it perfect for traditional wedding ceremonies.

For grooms with a modern edge, a slim-fit sherwani with clean lines and a tailored look offers a more contemporary and fashion-forward vibe. It accentuates your physique and gives a sleek, polished appearance. Another option to consider is the achkan style sherwani, which features a longer length and a front opening, often adorned with intricate buttons or brooches. This style adds a touch of royal charm and works well for formal occasions.


Choosing the Right Fabric


Now that you have an idea of the silhouette, let's move on to another crucial aspect—fabric selection. The fabric you choose for your sherwani can greatly impact its overall look and feel. It's important to consider factors such as comfort, breathability, and the desired level of formality. Silk is a perennial favorite, known for its luxurious feel and rich texture.


It drapes beautifully and adds a touch of opulence to your sherwani. If you prefer a lightweight and breathable option, linen can be an excellent choice, especially for warm weather or outdoor weddings. It offers a relaxed yet sophisticated look. For those seeking a balance between luxury and elegance, velvet is a fabric that exudes richness and adds a royal touch to your sherwani.


It's perfect for winter weddings or occasions that call for more formal attire. If you're aiming for a contemporary look, consider fabrics like brocade or jacquard, which offer intricate patterns and a distinct texture.


The Beauty of Traditional Handicrafts


At WNW, we take immense pride in our expertise in traditional handicrafts. Our skilled artisans are masters of intricate techniques like zari, zardosi, mirrorwork, sequins and elaborate threadwork. These embellishments add a touch of magic to your sherwani, elevating it into a work of art. The delicate artistry and meticulous craftsmanship involved in these techniques ensure that your sherwani stands out with its exquisite detailing.

Our designers carefully incorporate these embellishments, keeping in mind the balance between opulence and simplicity. Rather than overwhelming the sherwani, the embellishments are tastefully added, enhancing its beauty while maintaining a sense of elegance. Whether you desire shimmering zardosi patterns or subtle threadwork, our artisans work diligently to create stunning designs that capture attention in the most graceful manner.


Finding the Perfect Colour Palette


The colour of your sherwani is a crucial element that sets the tone for your overall look. It's essential to choose a color that complements your skin tone and reflects your personal style. While traditional colours like ivory, gold, and maroon are timeless classics, don't shy away from exploring other hues that align with your taste. Consider the color palette of the wedding decor, the bride's attire, and the overall theme when making your selection.


Opting for complementary colours or coordinating shades can create a visually harmonious ensemble. For instance, if the bride's lehenga features vibrant colours like red or fuchsia, consider selecting a sherwani in a more muted or neutral tone. This allows the bride's attire to take center stage while your sherwani complements her ensemble effortlessly.

Accessorizing with Finesse


No ensemble is complete without the perfect accessories, and your sherwani is no exception. Adding carefully selected accessories can elevate your look and make a lasting impression. Consider pairing your sherwani with a majestic turban, crafted with attention to detail and adorned with embellishments that echo the design elements of your sherwani. A beautifully draped stole or dupatta can add an extra layer of sophistication, enhancing the overall regal feel.


Pay attention to the details, such as selecting the right footwear that complements your sherwani's style and color. Accessories like statement jewelry, brooches, or pocket squares can further enhance your look, adding a touch of individuality and personality. Remember, the key is to strike a balance and ensure that the accessories enhance your sherwani without overpowering it.
