Hi Bees! We want to have communion as part of our wedding ceremony, and would like to offer it to all guests who choose to take it as well. What are some of the ways you’ve seen this done? (Loaves vs. waffers, etc!)

I love the full loaf of bread where everyone comes to the front and tears off a piece. But that might not be easy to do in a wedding setting. I guess you could do the whole "pass the cracker" thing…
We are taking communion, but won’t be including all of our guests in it. Logistically it just seemed easier.

Could you do it Catholic style? I’m not sure if you’ve seen a Catholic mass, but everyone just files up to the front in an orderly fashion and takes it one at a time. You and your Fi could hold the bread and wine and "serve" it to each person coming up to take communion.
Also, in my parent’s non-denominational church, they take communion by passing baskets of torn-up loaves of bread and trays with all the individual cups of wine/juice already poured. Then, once everyone has had a chance to grab a piece of bread and a cup, they all take it together when their pastor reads the "The bread is my body, the wine is my blood" part.

I think it’s easier if the bread is already in discrete chunks or if you use wafers. If you have to tear off pieces and there are a lot of people, you could run out early because people take too much. I would also worry about hygiene of everyone touching all the bread, but maybe that’s just me. 🙂
