Ceremony Programs

I am working on making my programs and I have a few questions and thought I'd have y'all check my wording to make sure everything sounds okay. The program will be a single sheet, front and back. My wording is listed below. 

A few things to note and that I have questions on:

1. I'm not sure on the order of the ceremony yet since the officiant is working in the second reading and will send me the final copy later today. When he does I will rearrange the order of events to the correct order. 

2. Comments on the thank you section? I feel like it might be a little wordy and there could be some grammatical errors? I really love all the content though so I'm not looking to change content but maybe clean it up a little if you think it needs it. 

3. Do we need to list the ushers as part of the wedding party? I would like to list them but with the format I'm using I have to make the font pretty small to be able to add them on there. I could try using a bigger size page to fit them if they need to be on there? 

4. Is the order of the wedding party okay?

    I agree with all the suggestions that southernbelle0915 made.  I would also suggest your write out "and" instead of using the "&" abbreviation.

    Are the ushers being required to rent tuxes?

    In my area, there is no such thing as separate people functioning as ushers.  Groomsmen function in that role when necessary.  For that reason alone I would list the ushers.  They are members of the wedding party.  If the ushers are wearing any particular attire at your request, then I think the least you can do is acknowledge them.

    We have requested that the ushers wear a neutral color suit (black or grey) with a black tie. Pretty standard clothes that they all had already (they are all in their late 20s). We will be getting them boutenierres as well. 

    I took the design to the local print shop today to order the programs. I ended up using the suggestions of @southernbelle0915 so yes we listed the ushers.
