#2 MATCHING IN PASTELS:

Pastels are the new red for weddings nowadays. It’s such a subtle color that even if the groom wears the same color sherwani to match the lehenga, the colors don’t overpower the couple. This is a forgiving color as all pastel shades go well with each other and thus gives the bride and groom more options to pick their matching outfits from.

#3 IVORY SHERWANI, AN ASSURED MATCH:

The safest picks for the sherwani color for the groom is definitely ivory. It not only matches any white tones the bride might have in her lehenga but also goes with a bunch of colors. Accessorizing this look according to the bridal lehenga color will also give it the extra touch of perfection.

#4 MATCHING PRINTS:

This is perhaps the most in your face matching you can do when it comes to wedding outfits. The same material used for the bride’s lehenga can be used for the groom’s sherwani or a nehru jacket for the groom. There are ways to not go overboard in this design as well. You can make this look a little less extreme by pairing it with more plain pieces of the same color or of a matching shade.
