Engagement Dress Ideas for Indian Men 2022
Starting with some basic tips you need to keep in mind:
- Talk to your bride-to-be and get to know what her dress is like because if you are going to slay this day, you are going to do it with her.
- Know which style you want to carry for your event – whether you want to wear an eastern, western or fusion look.
- Day and night style hugely differs so keep the bold colors for the night while keeping it breezy for the daytime events.
- Since reservations have probably already been made and the date is set, you might want to check the weather because sweating or freezing on this special occasion is not how you want to look back.
- Rather than going for over-the-top outfits, choose what will look good on you and what will be comfortable to wear because in the end, you want to enjoy this day and show off those moves that you have been preparing for some time.
- Know your body type and concentrate on getting the best fit for whatever dress you plan to wear because stitching and fitting are the most important factors while searching for an outfit.
- Accessories are going to matter and play an important role in bringing your outfit together, so choose your footwear, cuff-links, shawl, jewelry, etc carefully.
- Take your wing-man with you to select the suit because it’s never too early or late for a second opinion.
- Keeping it simple but elegant regarding your best fit for the big day is probably for the best.
- Wearing traditional wear can be tricky so get the fittings done by your trusted tailor who has always been there to make your dresses look good on you.
- You might want to get out of your comfort zone to go and explore because with new designers, there is a whole new range to choose from.
- Your hair color plays a vital role in the color of your dress. Contrasting is important and that’s how you will stand out. As for beard and grooming, you should definitely check out our guide on Indian beard styles.
