As of today, we've got two ushers!
Um... not those type of ushers. And may I add the picture on the left is seriously weird.
No, they are ushers of the ushering type! For church!
Mr Pug has 3 brothers (as previously mentioned) so he has a few buddies he'd love to include in the wedding besides the 3 friends he'll have up there with his brothers. He e-mailed me a rousing gmail chain today that was sent after he asked a friend, M, if he'd be interested in being an usher.
To: Friend 1; Friend 2

Friend 1, tell Mr Pug how awesome I am at ushering. Tell Big Daddy how I ushered two people to Friend 2's one. Tell them how an old lady Friend 2 was escorting fell, but I was the one who was there to catch her, and break her fall.
Go ahead, tell him.
Big Daddy, I can attest that H was a great usher. I was a bit pre-occupied at the time, so I cannot confirm whether he truly ushered more guests than Friend 2. Only H could make ushering a competitive experience. However, Friend 2 was also a fantastic usher and did not pass out at the reception (rumor has it that there is a picture floating around of H getting hazed while briefly passed out in his chair).
Im loving this thread...
I appreciate the info, and after much consideration I have hired H as an usher.
Thank you for your time, IM OUT.
Oh, and in case you didn't know... Mr Pug's college nickname was Big Daddy. Oh how I love him! :) I just hope I don't get called Big Mama.
So Mr Pug asked Usher H and also secured Usher R. We're having the groomsmen escort the ladies down the aisle, so we'll need some serious ushers. I have a very large family to ush. (I'm pretending it's a word.) Mr Pug will probably select one or two more... but I am glad that we have two amazing ushers thus far!
How many ushers will you be having? How will their duties be different than the groomsmen duties?
