Next to the Rajasthani brides, the grooms also get dressed like a king in an exclusive grace and finesse on the day of marriage. They generally wear turbans on their heads embellished with jewels or feathers. In order to tie the royal turbans, Pagribands are sometimes called in. Ranghkhana, Chhapakhana and Siwankhana are the special departments in charge of dyeing, printing as well as tailoring the fabrics of the royal suits. Since the Rajputs are closely associated with the Mughals, they adopted their style of wearing clothes like rich embroidered brocade and silk suits, Pashmina suits, etc. The traditional costume of the Rajasthani groom consists of a long coat called Achkan in golden color with stately saffron turban and a churidar and royal shoes. In Rajasthan the grooms are also found to wear dazzling jewelry like Serpech on the turbans. They also wear necklace and cummerbund around their waists.

However, nowadays the modern grooms of Rajasthan opt for a perfect blend of urban as well as the western fashion trend. They can add a majestic touch to their looks by wearing exclusive Off-White Color Sherwanis or Maroon Churidar Pyjamas. They can have their wedding ensembles festooned with excellent embroidery works of sequins, pearls, stones, kundans, diamonds, zari, zardosi, cutdana and antique buttons on high neck collars and sleeves.
