They aren’t necessary, but I valued mine. I had my aunt and uncle play host and hostess. They are important to me, and they were people I could trust to be at the venue early to greet guests, let them know where to leave gifts and sign the guestbook, and just be overall friendly. It’s kind of nice to see a friendly face that says welcome.

I never heard of them until Mr. Farmer asked me who my hostess choice was. I scratched my head and asked, isn’t that the same thing as a personal attendant and yes pretty much. A host and hostess helps greets the guests and sends them to the guest book to sign while they are waiting to be seated by the ushers. They welcome the guests to the dinner and help guide them to be seated. They typically say a quick welcome at the beginning of the dinner and help the bride and groom with little things throughtout the day. They typically walk around saying hello and making sure people know where gifts and cards go. Generally they are older people that you look up to. I chose my “second” mother and Mr. Farmer chose his “second” father. People very important to us. 

It is very much a regional thing I am sure. Either way hope that helps!
