There’s no such rule that says grooms should only opt for a classic black tux or the quintessential beige and red sherwanis for their wedding ceremonies. Much like their counterparts (the brides), grooms too have gobs of hues to experiment with, when it comes to their wedding outfits. And if we go by the latest trends, it is pastels that are making the most noise.
Owing to their undying elegance and the modish touch they lend, pastels have become a go-to choice for all the urban grooms. These soft & elegant hues look super refreshing and are perfect for a day wedding. Groomswear designers too are making the most of these sublime hues by incorporating their charm into their creations in such unique and experimental ways. And we couldn’t agree more after we witnessed so many grooms sporting yummy pinks, powder blues, peaches, mint greens and other offbeat hues.
If you too want to give pastels a try but are a bit sceptical about how well they would look, we have got you the ultimate dose of inspiration. Down here we've listed some of our favourite grooms in pastel outfits. Take a thorough view and mark your favourite hue!
