08 May Indian Wedding Swagger – Make way for the Groom!
Indian Weddings are full of swagger but all about the Bride. The Bridal Outfit. Bridesmaids. The Lehengas & Cholis. The Pinks & Paisleys. Bridal entry songs, and Bidai music. Exorbitant Diamond Jewellery. Jimmy Choo & Christian Dior. Spa, Makeup, Hair and what not. The latest fad being the Bride dancing to ‘Cheap Thrills‘ while getting ready – yes, I am sure you have seen it all.
Did we forget that a Wedding also has another key player, commonly referred to as the Groom (a.k.a Dulha) sometimes, even Bechara. Albeit amongst the highly neglected, the groom is still amongst the top 10 most important people, somewhere in the list – right after the Bride’s parents, her wedding ensemble, her bridesmaids, her brother, her boss & her stylist.
This post is about those non-stereotypical Grooms that broke the Bechara-Myth & were the star of their Wedding! The Grooms these days are taking Swagger to an all new Level. Every Groom has his own style, some are uber cool and laid-back while some go to all lengths to make sure they look dapper. Some love to have a personal stylist, an assistant to answer calls/coordinate, a salon appointment before each event for a facial/trim/manicure and what not. While some others are just super chilled out about everything and clearly have their s**t sorted. All they care about is – if the friends and family are getting enough Booze, Making sure everyone including the Photographers are drunk! (hic!) Remember #soodbar and the craziness..
Let me take you to a journey of Grooms on their Big Day – over the last decade or so, and how they rocked their wedding with their personalities & style!
