    Hi we are having h2b 2 nephews as our ushers. They will be 9 and 11. (11year old is in a wheel chair) I was wondering whether they need to tell people where to sit as most of the people that are coming are joint friends. Should I just have each set of parents and family on each side then let everyone else sit where they like? Thanks x

    I am definitely not having sides, my family is easily 5 times the size of OH's and I have a lot more friends than him.

    It's just personal choice really!

    This is very similar to the other thread,further down...have u looked at the comments there? I don't think children are really capable of telling ppl where to sit tbh, the first three rows we had reserved for bridal party,parents and siblings, everyone else sat wherever

    I agree with KelBel, I don't think children will be able to tell everyone where to sit. We are having a sign of some sort that says something along the lines of "Pick a seat, not a side, we are all family once the knot is tied" so hopefully people will just sit wherever and not necessarily on a certain side xx

    I think as long as there isn't a huge empty gap between front two rows and the rest of the congregation it will be fine. A wedding I went to last summer and 3 empty rows as we all filled in from the back and the ushers didn't move anyone. A wedding I went to a month ago the ushers were great and moved the back row to fill in the middle.

    I would probably have kept any young ushers to giving out orders of service. The 9 year old could potentially offer an arm to anyone with walking difficulties. If you're not too worried about who sits where then I would say put reserved signs out for the families and leave everyone else to pick their seats. We were quite relaxed about seating ourselves, the first two rows on each side were allocated, and wheelchair spaces were allocated, but that was it.
