    What does an usher do at a wedding?

    A:

    Ushers are primarily responsible to escort guests to their seats at weddings. Often, especially at small- to medium-sized weddings, some groomsmen perform the ushers' duties. At times there is a complete overlap, with all ushering handled by the groomsmen. At larger weddings, however, ushers are separately designated and do not stand up with the groom during the ceremony itself.
