Looking your best on your wedding day is just as important for the groom as it is for the bride. After all, it is that defining moment that will change the course of your life forever. Putting together the perfect ensemble can seem like a bit of a challenge if you are on the heavier side of the weighing scale. Fret not, these effective styling tips for the plus-sized groom from WedAbout will help you make the right choices for the Groom:
Dark colours are known to work wonders to camouflage the extra flab and lend you a leaner look. Ditch the golds, beiges and browns, and style your wedding attire in dark shades such as maroon, dark grey, navy blue, black, or purple. Since offbeat combinations such as a blue and silver, maroon and black, purple and golden are in these days, you’ll have no dearth of options to choose from as a plus-sized groom.
Like this Groom, minimal detailing is the way to go if you are plus-sized. If your Sherwani is heavily embellished, it is just going to add extra weight to your frame. Another important thing to bear in mind is to not have the embellishments concentrated around the trouble areas of your body, as it will attract undue attention. For instance, if you have a pot belly, it is best to limit the detailing to the shoulders and back of your dress.
A light, flowy fabric is always more appropriate for the heavy built. As a plus-sized groom, you should totally avoid stiff fabrics like brocade or thick silks, as they’ll add more volume to your body and create that tire-like effect when you sit down.
Look how a subtle golden pagdri with a chic kalgi can create a classy effect. As a plus-sized groom, your aim should be to cut back on anything that makes you look bigger than you already are. It is a good idea to replace sehras and big head gear with a tightly woven pagri and a kalgi.
Being conscious about the way you look should be the last thing on your mind on your wedding day. Mixing up these WedAbout styling tips for the plus-sized grooms with your personal sense of style is just what you need to look and feel your best on your big day.
