We had our groomsmen seat people.  We had about 80 people at our ceremony.  Our best man escorted grandma in.  My brother escorted my mom in.  And reserved signs on the seats work fine.  I think people typically know to leave the first row for family anyways.  I think ushers are necessary if you want to make sure bride’s side sits on one side and grooms on the other.  We didn’t care where people sat, so it didn’t matter.

What about having a friend or family person just take charge of the ushering… it doesnt seem like a very hard job and shouldnt take very long. I assume that people would like to help as much as they can for people they love!

We’re kind of in the same spot.  My fiance will have 100-130 guests… I’ll have 30-50.  We’re wondering if we should just ask someone to tell people to “sit wherever.”

I think if you ask a few people in yoru family that will be there early to help out, you shouldn’t have a problem.

If there’s no usher, won’t people just walk in and sit down themselves? I mean, I always did.

Yeah, we didn’t have ushers and it wasn’t a problem.  The groomsmen walked in with our mothers and grandmothers, but no return trips.  If it isn’t a big deal to you, then just let people sit wherever they want.  We had a ton of mutual friends and coworkers at our wedding, so it also felt weird making people “choose a side”…
