A Wedding Ceremony WITH Ushers

I get asked by many of my clients after they have selected their wedding I need to have ushers?  Well below are the "duties" of a wedding usher.  That way, you can decide if you need to have one or two (or three) on site during the wedding ceremony.

  • Greet guests as they arrive.
  • Escort the single woman and elder to their seats.
  • Know the seating for the special guests.
  • Make sure the wedding programs, if there are any, are passed out prior to the start of the ceremony.
  • Light altar candles.
  • Escort the grandmothers and mothers down the aisle during the ceremony.
  • Pull the aisle runner down the aisle before the flower girls enter.
  • Assist with rounding up the wedding party for photographs.
  • Gather any items that may be left behind after the ceremony.
  • Direct guests to the wedding reception.

And just as I ask the wedding party members to arrive to the ceremony location at least one-hour before the start of the ceremony, the same is asked of the ushers.

Until next time...WEDologize!
