We didn’t have ushers (DH didn’t want any) and I regret it to this day!  I didn’t push it because I figured people could figure out where to sit.  But, the problem was – people were scared to sit close to the front on DH’s side – and there were all these empty pews in the front and the back was WAY too smooshed.

It annoys me every time I see a picture of the ceremony that shows the view of the pews.

I’d have a couple friends help escort people to their seats and fill in any gaps.

I’d also do a processional for the mom’s and the gmas.  And, yes – it would be nice for them to be escorted down the center aisle.  Either by their husband – or, for your mom, if you have a brother that could be nice…. it doesn’t really matter who does the escorting.

We didn’t have ushers, (actually I didn’t even think about ushers).  People just sat themselves whereever they wanted.  Most people know how to take a seat.  they’ve done it before 😉  don’t over think it.

just wanted to add that we had a few seats reserved at the front for specific people.  Everyone else filled in the seat behind the reserved sections without a problem.

My grandpa escourted my grandmother down the aisle, (her husband).  DH’s mom walked down the aisle with Darling Husband and his dad and my mom walked me down the aisle along with my dad.

2 of our Groomsmen will serve as ushers but they wont be called that. Also we are having a wedding planner who can help decrease confusion.
