There are no two ways about it – one must find a lehenga that not only matches the jewellery (and decor), it must also match what the groom’s wearing. Up until recently, grooms were a neglected lot who wore whatever was recommended to them, but now the game is changing. There is immense pressure to pair beautifully, to match elegantly, and to look perfect for pictures. But the art of ‘matching up’ isn’t easy. There’s a method to the madness and we managed to find 12 interesting ways couples can look effortlessly great together in matching wedding outfits on their special day.

Here are the best wedding outfits for couples in 2020 –

Just a hint of synergy. In this case, the bride wore green bangles that matched with her husband’s green sherwani.

Different fabrics, different styles, same colours

It’s all about finding a colour that works for both of you while you have the leeway to work with different fabrics and styles. Here, the bride is wearing a shiny, sheer lehenga while the groom sports a trendy Benarasi.

Pick a colour that works for both and wear it well. Choose a colour palette that contrasts your decor to stand out.

White is always the right

When in doubt, always opt for a white sherwani or a white lehenga – the other person can pick a colour they choose.

The easiest way to work a colour into a pair is through the dupatta – influencer Diipa Khosla knows that and so her husband just picked her lehenga’s shade for his outfit’s dupatta.

It’s beautiful and royal when the groom also flaunts the same Benarasi fabric as the bride. It’s interesting how well put together this looks.

It’s about matching the bride’s lehenga print to the sherwani of the groom – long stretch we know, but it works.

Match the lehenga border with the sherwani

This is hard but if it works, it’s a wonderful way to pair up. Notice how effortlessly the bride’s lehenga fits in with his sherwani.

Let his turban match your lehenga

This is yet another easy way one can add a bit of colour to the groom’s look. Anita Dongre knows how to work this beautifully into her campaigns.

When it comes to pairing up your wedding outfits, as long as you stay in the same colour family you won’t look out of place. TIn this picture, you see that the couple is perfectly matched with two different hues of green.

Pick up a base hue and top it up with two different dupatta shades

This is a unique way of pairing up – use the same colour palette and then twist it up with a shade you like. Works like a charm.
