Traditions…
*Bride’s side on the Left / Groom’s side on the Right
**Traditionally, Ushers are to extend their right arm when seating guests – however – depending on what side the guest is being seated ┬áit would make sense for them to extend their left arm for the bride’s side or their right arm for the groom’s side. (This way the guest escorted would not have to walk in front of the usher).
