"We have taken our structured draping to menswear; this has enabled men to wear silhouettes like never before. The last time I wore a dhoti was about 15-18 years back which came off and now I am wearing it again," says leading fashion designer Tarun Tahiliani.
With various wedding themed exhibitions and shows like the three-day Vogue Wedding Show from August 1 and the India Bridal Fashion Week beginning on August 7, the designers are seen concentrating more on cuts and light weight clothing with colour scheme focusing on pastels and dull gold with the traditional reds and maroons.
"The ideal look for the bride is ornate but light weight. The modern bride doesn't want to wear anything too heavy as she wants to dance all night, even after the wedding. Also, the styling shouldn't be too overbearing, it should reflect the woman's personal style," says Tahiliani.

Men are actually the true peacocks! Newer styles and an evolved appropriation of tradition have resulted in some fantastic looking Indian grooms recently. Indian men look great in Indian clothes and sea of options opens up in pyjamas, flared kurtas, full-bodied designs.
"Several pieces including newer cuts and treatments for grooms are on the cards. Lots of layering and subdued texturing overlaid with exquisite embroideries and surface embellishments," says J J Valaya, leading fashion couturier who is also a wedding specialist.
Fashion experts point out that elegance comes first and must never be compromised. Keeping a well-tailored and not too much over the top look to keep in rhythm with the current trend. Indian men can experiment with their look and style.
