Brides, Here Are 8 Different Ways To Colour Coordinate Your Outfit With The Groom!

Sanchita Kalra, 14 Dec 2016

After so many constant efforts and so many bribes (of post-shopping-drinking-session!), my guy-friend finally agreed to accompany his best friend who's getting married for his wedding shopping. Umm, it's 2016 and can we finally say men like to shop?

So, two guys who were already confused between buying a sherwani and tuxedo were puzzled even more upon reaching the store. Because the salesperson added more to their dilemma by asking questions, "What colour is the bride wearing?"... "I hope you both are colour-coordinating outfits!". Well, they both immediately realised that their visit to the store was just futile as both of them were absolutely clueless about the colours that the bride was wearing for the wedding (and other functions!). But, the mandatory beer session as promised happened.

All this made me think how colour-coordinating wedding outfits has become really popular. And why not? After all, who doesn't love good looks and good pictures! The first thing your guests will notice on stage even before interacting with you is your wedding attire and that needs to be in contrast with your better half's outfits! And secondly, since you're going to be in the limelight throughout your functions and will also be photographed a lot, it's best to make sure that you both complement each other. Therefore, here are some ways by which you can colour-coordinate the outfit with your bride/groom:
