We didnt have ushers – our groomsmen seated people before they had to make it to the alter but i think 4 is a good number for 200 people – 2 people for each side? I guess it depends on your fiance…are there certain people he HAS to have in the wedding(that arent groomsmen)? i would limit it to those people

@GreenEyedMoon:2 or 3?

It gives the chance to slowly walk someone down the aisle, and then hustle back to get more people.

The general rule is to have one usher for each 50 guests.

There is also no reason that your groomsmen cannot do double duty as ushers. They really don’t do anything else. They can join the groom and the best man in the sanctuary after they have seated the last guest.

@GreenEyedMoon: Keep in mind that if you add other people, they and the spouses or SO’ s also need to be invited to the rehearsal dinner if you are having one.

We are expecting about 100 people and we are having 3 ushers. I think we could have got by with 2, but we wanted to include my FIs Brother-In-Law in the party. One of the guys is also going to be responsible for rolling out the aisle runner, and my brother (who is also the grandfather of one of the flower girls and a ring bearer) is going to be in charge of keeping the 5 kids in the wedding party on track.
