Coordinating the bride and groom outfit has been in vogue for some time now and it is one of the trends that we are absolutely in love with. From matching colours or prints to contrasting designs, couples have found innovative ways to wear complementary ensembles. While it is fun to match your dress with your partner on your big day it also makes the photos look extra good. Here, we have for you some great outfits which we spotted on real couples. Take a look and get inspired!

In Pastel Shades

It is not necessary that you wear the same colour, you can also choose to wear from the same family of colours. Here, both the bride and groom have opted for pastel shades. While the bride has gone for a multicoloured pastel blouse, the groom has opted for a powder blue bandhgala. By pairing both with white, they have really brought the outfits together. 


In Different Shades Of The Same Colour

You can choose different shades of the same colour palette. You can choose a sherwani in a lighter shade which is matched by the bride’s shawl whereas her lehenga-choli is in a darker shade. On the other hand if you are a girl who loves pastels, then do it the other way round.

In Matching Prints

Matching prints are all the rage now. They stand out from the usual designs sported by couples and create quite an impression. If you are looking for a more ornate look, then you can opt for embroidered prints. Here, the couple has chosen printed ensembles in similar colours. But the shimmery golden shawl and golden detailing on the blouse and skirt make the bride stand out.

Something Bright

This will make for a perfect combination for a Haldi function. Here, just the blouse and bandhgala are yellow whereas everything else is in white which provides visual relief and makes the overall look neat and sophisticated. 


Cut From The Same Cloth

If you really want to match it up, then you can go for the same fabric. Either the lehenga or choli or even both can be matched with bandh gala or jacket of the groom. This may be a better idea for Sangeet or Haldi rather than the wedding itself. The radial pattern sported by the couple here looks chic and unique.

Go Floral

One of the ways of matching outfits while staying true to your style is by just keeping the detailing the same. You can go for the same work (goat or embroidery) or the same print (floral or stripes or gingham) and choose different colours and still look matched. 

In Contrasting Colours

Coordinated outfits need not always be matching, they can be contrasting too. One great example of that is the royal blue and deep red combination. Blue for grooms is the equivalent of red for brides and they go great with each other.

You can match your outfit to a less pronounced colour on the lehenga like how the groom has done here. Take note of how the bride has used deep green coloured jewellery and that really helps them look matched.

Timeless Pattu Veshti & Kanjivaram Combo

This is the classic combination seen across South India Weddings. Nothing can beat a golden jubba and a pattu veshti for a groom. Also, any cheery toned Kanjivaram saree will pair up beautifully with this.

Same To Same

There is something alluring and regal about metallic colours. And when you pair it up, well, that makes for quite a dashing duo. It is great how even though they have opted for the same colour, they have been able to style the outfits tailored to their individuality. While there is an understated elegance to the groom’s sherwani, the heavily worked lehenga exudes grandeur and brilliance.
