With every wedding rehearsal, the question about how to usher a lady to their seat or to the alter always arises. Lets face it, the days of lending an arm are long gone and only really seen at weddings. This makes every guy nervous because they are not accustomed to this practice AND all eyes are on them to do it correctly...don't forget the photographer's lens.
Gentlemen, when ushering, offer the lady your left arm. Keep it firm and bent towards your body. Your wrist should be straight with your arm and your hand is to be in a loose fist. Walk tall with your head held high. Keep your pace slow and remember to smile.
Ladies, when a gentleman offers you his arm, take hold of his left arm with your right hand. You will rest your fingers on the crook of his arm. Keep your fingers together and hold on firmly but not too tight. If you are carrying a purse, do so with your left hand down at your side. If you are carrying a bouquet, bring it up to your waistline with your left hand. Again, take note of your body language - strong arms, head up, standing tall, and a visible smile.
These tips will make you wedding ready for your special day. I hope it helps.
