Traditionally, an usher escorts female wedding guests to their seats at the wedding ceremony.
Ushers are busy guys at the wedding. They're expected to:
- Arrive early at the wedding ceremony site
- Unroll the aisle runner
- Be familiar with the wedding ceremony seating arrangements
- Escort guests to their seats
An usher may also serve the role of groomsman which involves being a part of the wedding procession and standing at the altar with the groom.
Some ushers may also make a toast and post-reception may play a part in hooking up the getaway car.
