    An usher welcomes people at the church, gives out order of service, shows people to their seats etc - HTH

    you just help the best man get the groom out of the pub and to church on time and stands outside checking out which bridesmaid hes gonna try bouncing

    Our ushers helped at church with the guests making sure they sat in the correct area also responsible for orders of service and part of the top table brigade. I feel that it must be difficult for a man to choose a best man from many friends, so he chooses one who can be the 'best man' and the others become the ushers. Enjoy the day, I hope it's sas good is mine, 25 years ago in October. 25 years of fun and a fantastic time,

    I think ushers duties include those above but also to make sure everyone gets from the church to the reception.

    You get to do Confessions Part 3 the day after the wedding.

    Im going to my cousins 'big posh ' wedding tomorrow and they have several ushers and basically as said above its mainly to give 'close ' family members a part in the role and to wear the wedding attire, rather than just be a 'guest' which is an honour imo, as if anything like my family there are so many so its hard to pick , you may get a few basic things to do but nothing to worry about , oh and yeh you may get first refusal with the bridesmaids, lol as you will all be going to church from same place, sharing cars, photos together, top table , oooohhhh, who knows , lol, youll, enjoy it

    Hint - be sure to fill the sears out from the front, leaving the first 2 rows free for most important family/immediates etc, then make sure you push everyone into the next stalls.

    When I ushered for my cousin a few years ago it was dreadful, huge gap in the middle, people everywhere, didn't know what the hell I was doing.

    Herd those cattle in!

    Being an usher at a mate's wedding too. Had my brother in law and my brother as ushers at mine. They showed everyone where to park, where the gate to the church was put up signs to where the church is on various trunk roads. In the church they handed out the order of service and that was it really. Didn't give them presents though, I had too much other stuff on my mind. Did get the best man something.
