Do you also think that grooms have hardly any variety to choose from when it comes to their wedding outfits? If yes, well, it is time to think again! Because with this blog, I am going to bombard you with the most stylish reception outfit ideas for grooms. I believe, it is high time to prick the bubble that there are only limited silhouette options for grooms. Owing to this common perception, most grooms end up wearing the quintessential suits and tuxedos without even exploring any further fashionable options. But that's not how ShaadiSaga would let its dapper grooms-to-be choose their reception outfit.

We recently flooded our dapper grooms-to-be with 100+ wedding dresses, and now it is time to up your sartorial game for the reception night! So here I enlist some of the latest reception outfit ideas for grooms that you must check out before finalising one.

Best Reception Outfit Ideas for Grooms

1. An oh-so-stylish reception outfit option

This signature Shantanu & Nikhil outfit is straight outta our dreams.

2. Ivory and Gold bandhgala set

Well, this is a great outfit option for the wedding as well. But if you are not wearing something similar to the wedding, you must consider it for the reception night.

3. Black bandhgala set with a stole

Here's another amazing reception outfit option for grooms who wanna make a rocking style statement. The intricate golden thread work on the stole is adding the perfect rich look to the outfit.

4. A long black achkan with a distinctive collar

And how about getting clad in a super stylish outfit like this?

5. Asymmetrical kurta set

This overlapping kurta with asymmetrical hem screams elegance and is undeniably a great pick for the reception night.

6. A basic suit with shimmery lapels

You can amp that basic black suit with a dash of shimmer, and this groom shows you how!

Anand Ahuja's reception outfit was also SO ON POINT! This timeless silhouette must make it to every groom's wedding wardrobe.

8. Traditional kurta with a contrasting Nehru jacket

9. A violet double-breasted bandhgala

This dapper groom stunned in a unique-hued double-breasted bandhgala blazer and fashioned it with a white kurta and a pair of black pants. And it totally makes sense to steal some style inspo from him.

10. An all-white suit

Most grooms look for outfits in darker hues for the reception night but let us tell you, white is a classy option too.

11. A voguish combo of grey and maroon

The elegance of a three-piece suit can never be outdated, and here's a real groom slaying it in a scintillating steel grey tux with a maroon tie and ivory shirt.

12. A heavy achkan, why not?

Take a cue from our real groom Tanveer who donned a regal achkan with fine embroideries on his reception night.

13. Steal the show with a stole

Don't limit the stylish stoles only for the wedding, they are perfect for the reception too. Here Viraj is wearing a quilted blue achkan with a matching velvet stole.
