Ushers...?

We’ve been thinking about ‘Ushers’ and it’s always a difficult decision on WHO to choose. There’s the ‘should I offer it to a family member’ argument as well as the ‘are they going to be up to the job’. With all that in mind, we’re currently thinking of NOT having any - and having a ‘master of ceremonies’ instead!

Ralph – any views on this?

  1. As I mentioned when we spoke last, Ushers are there primarily to organise the guests and take away hassle from the Bride & Groom (that is provided they do their job). Organising Guests can be bit like herding cats, especially after a drink or two (the guests not the cats).
    It’s also an honour you bestow on your favourite men in the world. I guess if none of this is relevant to your arrangements, then Ushers are not needed. Most people have been to a wedding before and will know about the `bride’s side’ and the `groom’s side’ at the ceremony and if they don’t, well what does it matter anyway?

  2. Hi Ralph. Yes, good point. MY thinking was that the MC could do all the herding!!!
