A video of two groomsmen walking down a street while wearing sarees in Chicago to surprise a groom will warm your heart.

“Just a typical wedding morning with the groom’s 2 best men walking down Michigan Ave in sarees,” Paraagon Films, the Chicago-based wedding videographers behind the viral video, captioned the clip on Instagram.

The video starts with the two men getting help putting on their sarees — traditional garments made of cotton, silk and other fibers worn in India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal.

The two men complete the purple and green sarees by donning bindis, a dot placed between their eyebrows on their foreheads.

As soon as the duo reach the wedding venue, the groom turns around to see his friends wearing the traditional attires and bursts out in laughter. 

The clip has garnered over 50,000 likes on Instagram since it was first posted on Oct. 27, but the actual wedding ceremony was filmed over the summer, according to a video montage pinned to Paraagon Films’ Instagram.

The montage also does not appear to show the groomsmen wearing sarees at the wedding ceremony as guests dance the night away.
