Search vendors, read latest blogs, see real weddings pics, and know India's awesome wedding culture
I often wondered why weddings are always about the bride. You do not agree? Well, Google about weddings in India, and all the searches are related to the bride - makeup, hairstyle, lehenga, and jewelry. I am like whoa there is some serious lack of balance, and it is time for corrective measures.
An Indian groom's wedding day attire is limited to two options - Sherwani or Achkan. Therefore accessories are used to make them look unique and refreshing. There are different types of accessories for the groom like Safa, Sarpech or Kalingi, Kantha mala, and dupatta. Each has its impact; however the most alluring of all is the Kantha for groom.
Kantha (also known as a necklace) is worn by every groom as a part of his wedding look. But nowadays even the groom's besties and family members add a touch of royalty to their looks by wearing swanky necklaces. In the recent wedding bashes of the Ambani children, Bollywood bigwigs like Amitabh Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan paired their outfits with chunky neckpieces over understated dresses.
So I dived down the bottomless ocean of the internet to find some mind-blowing wedding Kantha ideas for our soon-to-be grooms. Below are the results!
1. You can never go wrong with a necklace made with white Pearls. Whether it is a single layer piece or the Satlada (seven layers) - both look stunning on light, and the pastel-colored groom wears.
2. White pearls look great when they are mixed with colored stones. The most alluring part of this wedding Kantha is the pairing with Safa. All three - the sherwani, necklace, and the head wrap are color coordinated to complete the look.
