anyone opted for all female ushers?
i was hoping to find a way to incorporate all of my ladies who didn’t make it into my small bridal party … and came up with 4 female ushers.
is this inappropriate? what could i call them so that they actually want this honor?

we are! anything boys can do girls can do better. =) is there any reason you can’t call them ushers? that’s what i was planning…

We’re not having ushers, but I’d say it’s totally fine to call a female usher an usher – I think it’s a unisex term.

I’ve heard of female ushers; no problem…and I agree, usher is pretty unisex. Are you thinking of having them wear dresses that match the suits/tuxes (black tux/black dress) or match the bridesmaids colors? If you go the match tux route, it’s easier to identify who is an usher and that way they have a chance to pull something they already have out of their closet (or use this as a reason to get another cute outfit 🙂 ).

I’m actually using my two younger female cousins as ushers. They will be the only ones at the wedding that are under 18. They are both 16 and I chose them specifically to be a part of my wedding because they both are extra special to me.
I say go for it!

I wasn’t thinking of having them wear something special …. should I? My bridesmaids are wearing celery green and the groomsmen are wearing black tuxes with green ties. Should I "suggest" they wear green or black???? I was just going to give them a corsage….
do the guys normally wear the same tux/suit?
