It’s a thrilling experience to wear Indian sherwanis and jodhpuris, achkans and kurtas. India is a diverse country. This is reflected in the weddings where different styles dominate. Each region has a distinct stamp. Not only does the wedding continue for days but in a single day there is one ceremony in the morning and another in the evening. During weddings the penchant is for traditional clothes but even in this there is a blending of Persian glory with orthodox Hinduism. The customs of North India are different from that of the South. But in this age of blending all the traditions are blending so that western suits are vying with the royal splendour of kurtas, jodhpuris and sherwanis. The exquisite jackets, coats and shirts are meticulously designed to highlight the importance of the groom on that special day. These are available in many types of material – from simple cotton to silk and raw silk. The achkan comes out of the pages of history. From the 18th century it became attire for grooms. It is a sort of long jacket having full sleeves. The front has buttons. Generally it is worn with tight fitting trousers with the ankles being hugged by

Geeta Arts London creases. Sherwanis are similar to achkans but are made of heavier materials and the jacket is lined. Sherwanis are worn on top of a kurta. The sherwanis display heavy embroidery work made with gold and silver threads. The most comfortable are the kurta pajama sets – the kurta being worn on top.
