30 Velvet Sherwanis that Reinstate the Charm of Class & Style

‘Velvet’ – what comes to your mind when you think of it? It is a tufted fabric, made primarily with silk yarns. Velvet sherwanis is one of the richest styles that can be flaunted by the groom or groomsmen or others during an Indian wedding!  Evenly cut threads are equally distributed to make it the softest of fabrics that you will ever put your hands on. The fabric is associated with luxury, class, decadence and style! Often a highly pleasing experience or an extremely soft object is described as “velvety smooth”.
They say, all that a girl needs is simple velvets and basic diamonds! We don’t disagree. But like women, men can also befriend velvets when it comes to luxurious wedding styles!

Though the velvet sherwani is considered the most suitable outfit for the groom in that winter wedding, improvisations in the fashion tech sector are resulting in silk yarn alternatives to create lighter velvet fabrics that can also be worn during the summer. Most importantly, velvet is so rich and luxurious that it neutralizes the need for embellishment, making the solid monotone look come back into the ethnic fashion scenario.

Their courtship was unique because before meeting in person in San Francisco and Sacramento for a 10-day long date, they engaged in virtual dating twice. They had bonded instantly – it was the coming together of soul mates. In May 2020, they decided to get married and a date was fixed in September 2020!
It was through the announcement of this wedding in the New York Times that Sundeep and Sharath came out to the world. So it was important for them to feel proud of their identity as dissenters. They decided to get married in a traditional Sikh as well as Coorgi ceremonies and invited the media to cover the events. For the wedding day, they chose to wear gorgeous anarkali-style sherwanis. Both outfits are in a combination of gold and cream and showcase all-over zari, zardozi and sequin embroidery. They wear maroon turbans, churidar bottoms and bandhej stoles.
