    I think it sounds fine! I mean, who says an usher has to be a dude anyways? I likely wouldn’t even notice unless the chick grabbed my arm or something, then only because I don’t like to be touched by random people in general.

    Assigned seating for a wedding tho? What if they want to sit with so-and-so who’s in a different row?

    I don’t see anything wrong with it and your guests won’t either. Just call them ushers regardless of gender. However the clipboard is unnecessary at the ceremony because you don’t have seating assignments there and they will look very out of place with one. Just have them ask if they are guests of the bride or groom and lead them to their seat on whichever side is appropriate. Either way, ushers are expected and no one thinks it’s “VIP-y” as you call it.

    i think it’s fine to have women and not men do the seating. i assume you’re only seating the “sensitive few” and not having seat assignments for everyone. to ejys point, it might be weird if certain people came together / want to sit together that you didn’t anticipate.

    I think it sounds fine! =) I would make sure to check with the ladies to make sure that they’d be fine with doing it, though.

    I don’t see anything wrong with having usher-ettes.  Smile  I know that I would do it if a friend asked.

    Usher-ettes, actually sounds like a cool idea. There are no rules stating that a woman can not usher guests at a wedding. I say do it as long as the chosen usher-ettes want to do it.

    I think this would work.  I don’t see why ushers always have to be male. In fact, I was an usher at a friend’s wedding–they had two women and two men as ushers.

    I think it’s a good idea.  I don’t think the role of  “usher” needs to be limited to one gender or the other.  BTW, did you ever see that wedding where the girls on rollerskates seated people?  (The bride participated in rollerderby).  Your post made me think of that. 🙂
