  1. If it looks like rain, make sure each usher has a matching umbrella. NOT white – very cheesy. Black is cooler. Or rainbow. Why not gove them each a really nice umbrella as a gift?
  2. Chewing gum. If you’ve all had cheese and onion crisps in the pub you’ll need it. I’ve seen a bride flinch at the first kiss due to the grooms fag/crisp breath! Dont let it happen to you.
  3. Cigarette lighter – for the church candles, obviously.
  4. Spare cufflinks – there’s always one.
  5. Spare tie that is in keeping with the colour scheme.
  6. Knowledge of how to get to the reception.
  7. Knowledge of where the toilets are at the church.

Ushers generally dont really know what’s going on. They look great, wear a buttonhole and hope that this will get them laid – you know who i’m talking about! This is fine but good ushers can really help make the day go smoothly
