VIDEO: Five groomsmen dances that put your wedding to shame

It wouldn’t be unusual if you and your spouse spent countless hours in the weeks leading up to your wedding perfecting that special “first dance” that would blow your guests away.

Maybe you chose a traditional ballroom-style dance, or maybe you decided to be a little edgy and choreograph something to hip-hop or hard rock tune. Who doesn’t love to see a bride and groom perform their best Running Man or Cabbage Patch, amirite?

But what about when it’s the wedding attendants who steal the show? Take groom Sean Rajaee, for instance, who, according to his sister Shirin’s YouTube page, decided to surprise his bride with a choreographed American/Persian groomsmen dance for their June 21 nuptials.

The dance starts off with a Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love, ” then transitions to  the Backstreet Boys “I Want it That Way” and ends with Bruno Mars’ “Marry You.”

“The group even included a fun Persian dance number,” Shirin says, adding that some of the groomsmen flew in from across the country and had to learn the routine last minute and via video tutorial.

“The bride, Ariana, was in shock and so were all the guests,” she said.

Here’s another set of booty-shakin’ groomsmen performing at Signature Manor in Sugar Land, Texas.

This one starts out super theatrical, but picks up with some tunes from the Justins (Timberlake and Bieber.) Apparently, it’s the fifth dance these dudes have done together as groomsmen.

If you can get past the jokester groomsman in the beginning, these guys aren’t half bad.

These bros’ dance moves leave a lot to be desired, but they get props for enthusiasm and Justin Bieber wigs.
