From the Maid of Honor down to the Ring Bearer, there are laundry lists of responsibilities associated with each role that no one in their right mind would (or should!) ever know by instinct. In this advice series, I am going to be posting a breakdown on the various duties for everyone involved in the wedding party.
Typically, ushers are not photographed with the bridal party, although they are important—however, not absolutely necessary! Ushers are good friends of the groom who help greet guests and get them to their seats. According to the basic standards of etiquette, there should be one user for every fifty guests. Duties include the following:
- Arrives at the location early to help set up, light candles, etc.
- Greets guests upon arrival and assist with seating
- Passes out programs and encourages mingling
