In the words of Big Sean, “ain’t nobody fresher than my *** clique”— so naturally we realize no two crews are the same. However, for whatever reason, the following five types of guys seem to find their place next to the groom at almost every wedding. From the life of the party to the overachiever newlywed, we’d be shocked to hear you don’t have at least 3 out of the 5 following types in your own clique.
Hopefully the best man, he takes his job super seriously and is the ultimate sidekick. Though sometimes considered the responsible “buzzkill” of the group, he’s likely the reason you show up on time and in one piece. You can trust that he’d give his life before losing the rings but he’s also fun and chill enough to plan a bachelor party. He’ll try to stay strong but will likely tear up at the wedding.
The Party Animal
He’s always the life of the party and is guaranteed to get everyone out on the dance floor. He’s the center of attention, likes to live large, and likely will be in more wedding photos than you are. He’s also the first to suggest tequila shots at 9AM and always comes equipped with his own flask for the “slow passing” hours before the open bar, so make sure someone keeps tabs on this one.
The Professional Groomsman
He’s friends with everyone and has easily been in a double digits number of weddings. He’s not the most fun guy at the wedding and in fact is slightly over them, so don’t be surprised if his toast sounds canned, he gets points for consistency. He’ll arrive on time, help tie ties, and generally be the most helpful person in your crew of groomsmen.
The Solo Rider on the Prowl
He was way more into the bachelor party than the actual wedding, but regardless, he can be fun to observe during your big day as he scopes out potential targets. He’s on a mission to get with one of the bridesmaids or realistically just collect the numbers of any and all single party guests. He looks great in a tux and he knows it and will likely have fallen in love twice before the reception even starts.
He recently got married and is so excited to tell you all about it, give advice, and have you join the “married club”. He’s not the best man but is a total overachiever and has practiced his “under a minute” toast 20 times. He’s packed every gadget from drones to GoPros, and though sometimes annoying, his iPhone X photos are likely better quality than the actual wedding photographer’s.
Regardless of which of these make up your own clique, you’re guaranteed to have variety that makes each relationship special. Let us help you unify your crew with a look as unique as the men wearing it. Say I do with I DEUX!
