"Usher" Question...

Recommended Posts

We are having a small wedding of about 22 ppl. (Close family and friends) For those of you with a smaller wedding, how did you "seat your guests"? Were they escorted by an usher, or did they just sort of sit down? Thanks :)

We have 43 people booked and we're doing a seat your self kind of ceremony. Also, 90% of the wedding is from my side, so it might look kinda funny if we sat people the traditional way.

 

IMO seating yourself is totally ok, and probably preferred by a lot of people.

My FI was part of a wedding last summer that had approx. 150 people invited. The wedding party (to me) was huge, 6 people on each side.

 

I'd say about 60 people showed up for the ceremony. There were no ushers, but people were smart enough to sit wherever except the first row for the parents.

 

I'm sure the people will figure it out. Hopefully you won't have any uninvited "guests" at your wedding, seated or not!

We will just have a seat yourself as well. We went to a wedding in Cuba a couple years ago and all the seats were in one spot, and the bride and wedding party came down beside the sitting area. This too was a seat yourself.

I don't really see that it is a big deal, since a DW isn't a traditional wedding to start with really.

we had a wedding the same size. people seated themselves. I told our parents to take the front row. I'm sure everyone would have known to leave it open for them. I also spread the word that people could sit anywhere. it did end up with the traditional seating of his family on the right & mine on the left. But, then friends were mixed on both sides. We had an equal number of family members, but more of my friends came. I think there were only a few extra seats so it had to be balanced on both sides. I prefer it that way.

 

Oh, I just realized why there were 2 extra seats. I counted our photographers as guests for the dinner so they gave them a seat at the ceremony.

I think seat yourself is fine. I went to a wedding earlier this year and there were about 100 people and the best man stood at the back of the room to welcome folks and let them know they could sit anywhere they wanted. It worked great.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
