11 Things Every Guy Dreads Every Time He’s Asked To Be A Chambelan

Being a chambelan for someone’s quinceañera is no joke. You don’t really realize how much work goes into being a chambelan until you show up at that first valz practice and realize you’ll be dedicating your Saturday mornings for the next four months to practice your two-step.

Here are all the dreadful things guys go through when they agree to be a chambelan

As soon as you get asked to be the chambelan for someone’s quinceañera, your initial thought can be summed up in this tweet:


Whyyyyy tho?

But because your mom is forcing you it’s impolite to say no, you basically have no choice but to say yes…no matter whose quince it is.


What is this, a quince blind date?

Even if she’s your ex.


Damn that’s awkward.

And if you have a whole bunch of primas or sisters, then you’re really screwed.

You have no way out. You’re going to be a chambelan for the next 5 to 7 years.

So start saving or figure out how your parents are going to spend hundreds of dollars on a tux you’ll only wear for one day.

Because who would wear a tux with a colorful ass tie and vest to match with the quinceañera.

Then, be prepared to deal with 4 months of dance practice to make sure no one messes up the classic two-steps-forward-one-step-back dance.

Because you know 78% of these kids have no rhythm.

But if it’s taking up too much of your social life, not to worry. These 90-minute sessions can replace your gym time.


Chambelan practice is a workout in disguise.

The fun continues to the actual day of the quinceañera, when you’re in the spotlight all. day. long.

So make sure to smiiiiile. 🙂

Be prepared for all of that attention you’ll get (even though it’s not *your* quince).


You just have to try to look your freshest…even with a pimple on your face.

Sooooooo much fun, right?!!!

And to end the night, you have to try your best not to f*ck up in this awkward waltz dance that you practiced for three-quarters of your life.

You got this. I believe in you.

Lots of responsibilities, right?…Well, that’s why some guys will do anything to try to avoid being a chambelan.


Literally anything.

But savor the moment, because one day you’ll wish you could do it all over again.


Ahh those chambelan days…gone, but never forgotten. ?
