Fashion Do’s and Don’ts For Every Groom To Be!

When it comes to the fashion spectrum, grooms are often left out. People tend to focus on what the bride is wearing, is her makeup on point, etc. Grooms, it’s time for you to follow a few fashion tips and climb up the ladder! We’ve got simple and easy-to-follow fashion tips that will make sure you’re at your A game!

1.Turbans

Turbans need not be heavy and bejeweled, nor do they have to be utterly plain and simple. Don’t hesitate to try quirky floral turbans, they are really trending this season! We like the idea of a simple turban with one big jewel (say Emerald) on it. Royal yet classic! Also, not every turban is meant for everyone. Ask for trials and wear the one that fits you and suits you.

2. Accessorize

Attention men! Accessorizing is not only meant for women! There are tons of options for y’all- brooches, necklaces, cufflinks, finger rings and what not! You don’t have to go overboard with it and make it a blingy affair, but a little bit of flash hurt no one!

3. Colours

It is not your mother’s/sister’s/fiance’s job to pick up colours and clothes for you. Step out yourself and judge which colour suits you the best. Play with different colours throughout the functions, don’t stick to one colour. Do not shy away from colours such as lemon yellow, hot pink, lavender or any colour you think isn’t “manly enough”.

4. Patterns

Explore patterns my child, explore patterns. Plain sherwanis or plain jackets are so yesterday! There are florals, motifs and many more detailed works. Step out of your comfort zone, my boy!

5. Fittings

You don’t want to run around at the last minute when you realize you can’t fit into your own sherwani/suit. Can you imagine what a nightmare it will be?! To avoid any such situations please try all your clothes in advance.

6. Coordination

Be in sync with your bride! You don’t have to be all matchy matchy but don’t wear something that totally clashes with your bride. Coordinate with her and wear something that compliments each other.

7. Footwear

Ooh, tricky lot! Shoes can be very confusing and tiring. Mojris are usually very comfortable. So be careful while choosing your footwear, cause you really want to be comfortable throughout the day. You can opt for formal shoes for other functions such as sangeet, cocktail and engagement. Go easy on the mehendi and haldi by opting for sneakers!

8. Stylist

When in doubt, run to your stylist! He/she will give you the perfect advice if you’re going through a fashion crisis. They’ll know exactly what you want and need. Leave it to the stylist, baby!

9. Grooming

We cannot emphasis on this enough. Groom yourself well in advance, men! Your beard is not going to style itself or magically become softer overnight. Start at least 3 weeks prior to the wedding. Consult an expert if needed. We’d suggest against shaving/haircut just a week before the wedding. Get your eyebrows done if needed!

10. Makeup

Pshh.. wanna hide those dark circles caused by excessive partying the night before? Apply foundation and concealer! Please don’t be under the pretext that only women can and are allowed to apply makeup. Dab on some foundation and concealer (please don’t do it yourself. You don’t want to be a walking white disaster!) and enter your wedding with your head held high!

Alcohol and Weddings? Best Combination Ever!

Remember the time when you were a teenager sneaking alcohol at your cousin’s wedding while looking out for your parents? Ah good old days! Alcohol and weddings go a long way. Elders used to frown upon when alcohol was present but now they frown upon if alcohol is missing from the wedding! Alcohol or daaru as we desis like to call it, has become an integral part of our desi weddings. Daaru bina shaadi kaisi, yaaron?!

Check out some of the coolest brides, grooms and families as they gulp down on this dark amber liquid!

MTV Roadies host VJ Gaelyn just got hitched to her college sweetheart Sheehan in a gorgeous Taj Lands End Mumbai wedding! Surrounded by her co stars, family and tons of close friends, the couple chose the beautiful Mumbai venue Taj Lands End to host their wedding. Planned and executed to perfection by her family and friends, this wedding is taking all our hearts because of how beautiful it is!

"We met a really long time ago, when we were in college! It's been 12 years since we met. We had common friends so we hit off instantly" says Gaelyn as she reminsces about their wonderful journey together. In fact, Sheehan proposed to Gaelyn right after her shoot with Roadies ended, taking that time to prepare and book the entire restaurant!  "I kept thinking why the restaurant was all empty when in reality, Sheehan had booked the whole restaurant to pop up the question! I was blown away, I said Yes!" laughs Gaelyn.

Well, a story like this deserves the perfect ending and the wedding held up every bit of its own! From coordinated bridesmaids dressed to absolutely enchanting clicks by The Photo Diary, this wedding has given us tons and tons of inspiration when it comes to beautifully pulling off a minimalist wedding.

We Combined The Two Cutest Things In The World – Cats & Love For The Purrfect Pre-Wedding Shoot!

If you ever want to gift us something, just lock us in a room full of cats and we’ll be the happiest! After all, who will say no to these adorable fur balls?! We thought of combining two of the best things in the world – cats and a couple smitten in love. So we decided to run a competition on our Instagram and asked couples about what they love about their pets the most. It was difficult to choose one among tons but we finally found our ‘purrfect’ couple, Damini and Prateek.

In return, we gifted them a pre-wedding photoshoot with 47 rescue cats! Cat Cafe Studio in Versova houses 47 adorable rescue cats (who are also up for adoption).If you don’t wish to adopt one you can always sponsor them. Damini and Prateek, both animal lovers had the time of their lives. Let us show you a glimpse of this ‘catty affair’
