It keeps them free, allowing them to dance and make merry. Minimalist trend is on the rise. Traditional fabric like handmade textiles and banarasi silk is still preferred for the main wedding. When it comes to jewellery, millennials no longer wear heavy and chunky pieces. Multi color gemstones are the new trend and brides are opting for lightweight, functional jewellery that can be adorned for any occasion.
The modern groom is stylish with fusion silhouettes. They blend kurta with a suit, or kurts, sherwani and a bandhgala. The traditional sherwani is long forgotten. Accessories with geometric designs are preferred for lapel pins and brooches. Typical color combinations like silver on green and gold on white are less preferred. Being comfortable is also important. Comfortable and reusable garments that are not jarring are mostly preferred. Modern grooms are certainly looking for value for money.
