While there are many important responsibilities that have to be addressed on your wedding day, your attention can be trained on your personal preparations. You and your bridesmaids should feel free to dedicate yourselves to dressing, and having any planned hair and makeup services done. So what can you do to make sure your ceremony space is ready, and your guests are properly greeted? These roles typically fall to your ushers. While ushers play a visible role in your wedding by escorting guests to their seats, they can also be helpful in the time leading up to the start of your ceremony. By providing them with the proper instructions and details, you can give them the information they need to be great assets on your special day!
Make Sure Your Ushers Know What Is Expected Of Them
While your ushers have no formal role in the ceremony itself, you may want to invite them to join you at your rehearsal. By involving them, you can take time the night before to explain how they can best help you on the day itself. They can also observe the ceremony practice, and step in to manage any questions or confusion from bridesmaids or groomsmen. You can also talk to them about possibly arriving early to make sure your event’s setup goes smoothly.
Including Ushers In Pre-Wedding Events
If your ushers are a part of your rehearsal, they should obviously be welcome to attend your rehearsal dinner. You can also welcome them at your wedding shower, or engagement party. While ushers are not always included in bachelor party plans, they can certainly be welcomed to join in the fun.
What Should Your Ushers Wear?
While your ushers are not obligated to dress at the same level of the groom and groomsmen, you want them to fit in with the formality of your event. You can directly communicate what they wear, or give them a guideline for attire. If you want them to match, make sure you let them know. One thing to remember is that because ushers are typically less involved in your pre-wedding activities, and are not as linked to your wedding party, they may be less comfortable with splurging on their attire.
