@MrsBananas:  We did, but only because they were my brother and Brother-In-Law, who we would have invited to the rehearsal dinner anyway.  If they mention anything to you I would just let them know that you were trying to save them the hassle of such a short, unnecessary thing.  You knew they were smart enough to handle ushering 😉

@MrsBananas:  We included them, not on the basis of how complicated their role was, but because they were doing us a service. When you think about it, they actually do more than the groomsmen, and definitely  their role takes more time.The ushers are there ahead of time, escort people to their seats, make sure that the sides are balanced etc. The groomsmen, get dressed with the groom and show up only to walk in and stand there.The readers also just get up when they are called and read your chosen piece.

I think her nose is justifiably out of joint on behalf of her husband, although she should not be discussing her issues with other people..

I would phone him,, not HER, and apologize for the unintended slight. I would explain that you were given misinformation about who should be invited to the Rehearsal Dinner.  I would say that it was a lesson learned and you wanted to make sure there were no permanent repercussions to your friendship.

Are you able to invite the ushers and SO’s to your home for a dinner, barbeque etc. Having them over to your home might help soothe any hurt feelings.
