No ushers

We are having a very small wedding....a maid and matron of honor, and a best man.  No ushers.  60 or less guests, 85% of which will be my family.  What is the etiquette for having people seated for the ceremony in this case?   Thanks!

    You can have a "Reserved" sign for the first row or two if you want, just make sure your VIPs know to sit there.
  • It depends.  At my sister's first wedding, her clueless friends piled into the front rows that were for close family members.  Grandma had to stand.  An usher would have been helpful.

    Make sure you have a chair for every butt. :)

    We didn't have ushers.  Had a little over 100 non-wedding party guests at the ceremony.  We asked the venue to mark the first two rows as reserved for family and had no problems with guest seating.

    We didn't have ushers either. We just put little "Reserved" signs on the ends of the first row. Our wedding had 40-ish guests, a BM, and a MOH.

    Our processional went like this:

    MOG and FOG walked in together.

    MOB was escorted up the aisle by our BM.

    MOH walked up by herself.

    I walked in with my dad.

    No one in my circle would ever sit in the first row if they weren't immediate family.
