These dashing gentlemen are accustomed to the spotlight, but they’re fully supportive about standing alongside their friends in weddings. The Knot rounds up celebrity groomsmen over the years, including Derek Hough, Joe Manganiello, the royals and more.
Princes Harry and William
Perhaps the most iconic best men of the decade, brothers Prince Harry and Prince William both served as groomsmen respectively in William’s 2011 nuptials to Kate Middleton and Harry’s 2018 Windsor wedding to Meghan Markle.
Just before the end of his term as the 44th president of the United States of America, Obama made his way to Jacksonville, Florida, to join his close friend and personal aide Marvin Nicholson’s wedding party in early January.

We can’t blame Sofia Vergara for swooning over her handsome hubby at a friend’s destination wedding back in December. The actor looked right at home in a smart, gray suit and rose boutonniere during the seaside Mexico ceremony.
