Wearing a Turban/Paghdi is a must to dignify your look as a groom. Moreover, adding a turban brooch will add seven stars. A diamond studded brooch or the one made with colorful stones matching your attire is a must. You can even add a feather studded one to look flamboyant.
Even Kings wore necklaces. Unlike necklaces there are no pendants but chains of beads and pearls with single or multiple strands. Go for plain pearls or colorful beads complimenting your outfit. You can even opt for gold chains with a brooch.

A Stole or Dupatta made from silk or velvet adds elegance when teamed with Sherwani. Usually the stoles are plain or designed with butta and there are tassels on the border of the stole. You can drape the dupatta in front hanging from your shoulder or you can even try the royal style of covering one side of your shoulder with the stole and let the other side of the stole wrapped in your hands.
It is a must accessory for Sikh as well as Rajput wedding. The sword or the kirpan symbolizes honour and respect. Usually the sword is in beautiful golden or silver carvings.

A jutti or a mojadi is the one which goes correctly when you wear traditional attire. Many a times, the jutti is custom made with the same fabric as the Sherwani. However, a contrast or the ones in universal colors like golden and maroon look equally good.
A watch is something which completes the traditional look of the groom. A formal and classic watch with the belt colour matching the Sherwani or the usual leather colour is a must.
So, the grooms who complain about the brides getting more attention must add on these accessories to their traditional avatar. We are sure you will look nothing but a reigning king.
