A Tamil groom typically wears traditional attire for his wedding, which is rich in tradition and symbolism, and reflects cultural heritage. The groom’s wedding attire is chosen to exude elegance, respect for customs and a connection to the cultural roots.
Grooms have a range of choices for their wedding attire, such as the elegant Sherwani, the traditional Silk Veshti, and the sophisticated Bandhgala. Each option offers a unique blend of style and cultural significance to suit individual preferences. Tamil Grooms can enhance the elegance of these options as they like. For example, when wearing a Sherwani, they can go for a luxurious velvet shawl with embellishments, or if they prefer a Veshti, they can choose one with a rich gold zari border.
Accessories to consider
The Turban known as “Thalappu” in Tamil, is a significant traditional headgear worn by grooms during Tamil weddings. This ornate turban is crafted from a long piece of cloth, elegantly wrapped around the head. The cloth is often chosen to complement the groom’s attire, and the thalappa may be adorned with intricate patterns, embroidery, or jewels.
Wearing the thalappa not only adds a regal touch to the groom’s appearance but stands as a visual representation of the groom’s readiness to step into a new phase of life and take on the responsibilities of marriage.
