@engleman10513:  They certainly aren’t necessary, but if I’m walking into a venue/church that I am unfamiliar with, a good set of ushers and a friendly hostess are worth their weight in gold.  They make the guests feel welcome, help with coats, gifts, tell you where the bathroom is and hand you a program.  They’ll get Granny to her seat, take her special Pre-Wedding note to the bride in her suite and even get her a glass of water if she needs it.

How many people do you have attending? I think if you have a ton of people, it may be helpful. That said, it’s been a loooong time since I attended a wedding with an usher and I’ve been to weddings where the guest list was probably 300+.

I generally think people know where to sit and most people know not to sit in the front few rows unless they’re family. I think you can rope those off if you like. It’s nice to have someone pass out programs at the door but if you have a basket + sign, it’s fine.
