Indian weddings are known to be beautiful and visually rich ceremonies. They differ greatly from the traditional western ideals of a big white wedding, the numerous kinds of Indian and south Asian weddings tend to have a wider variety of colour involved in their big day.
Asian weddings are widely known for their beauty and while each country and religion will have its own traditions in particular, there are a few colours that feature widely across them all.
If you are undecided on which turban colour to go with for your special day, read on. We've put together a list of the most essential wedding turban colours to go for along with their meaning and what the colour represents.

Red is perhaps the most well-known colour associated with Indian weddings, though this is typically dedicated entirely to the bridal outfits.

Gold is another propitious colour, meant to represent wealth and status.
Traditionally, there was a huge amount of gold included in wedding clothing and decoration dependent on the money a bride’s family had. But nowadays, there is very little show of status and more of tradition.
It can sometimes be a nice element to accent your wedding outfit with a gold Turban, matching the gold elements in the dress.
Here are some colours that would perfectly accent any gold elements you are looking to match to:
Purple Turbans for Weddings
Purple is another colour used throughout Asian weddings, though it holds closer connotations with Japanese weddings in particular.
In Japan, purple represents love, though its use throughout India is also prominent, typically because it’s within the same colour palette as red when used in a darker form.

Pink is no longer associated as a feminine colour, especially when it comes to turbans. Most men prefer a bright pink turban to match with their partners. Here are a few shades of pink turbans we offer:
