    It will be fine. Wedding parties are not chosen strictly along gender lines anymore.

    I was an usherette in my friends wedding.  I felt like it was a fluff job to add more people to the wedding party simply because they had 3 ushers plus 3 usherettes (way too many!).  I was also in a wedding that had userettes (and only had usherettes) and it worked out great!  They sat people and there was enough for them to do and it was obvious that they were there because the bride and groom wanted them to be a part of their day, not just to add more people.

    I think it would be fine! Out of curiosity, what does a female usher usually wear? Probably doesn’t really matter, but I’m trying to visualize: flowy dress like a bridesmaid, or more unisex business casual like slacks and button up, suit, etc?

    I’ve never seen a female usher, but I don’t think it would be weird. To put it in perspective a little, I’ve only been to one wedding that had ushers. Most of the other weddings were outdoors or had informal ceremonies.
