As a guest, I wouldn’t mind short (like 2 or 3 minutes) readings or songs, I think it’s nice touch.  Maybe have a pause after dinner where you have a few toasts or songs?  to space them out a bit?

Can you just have an open mike when people are eating, so those who would like to sing, read, talk etc are able to do so?

rachel85:  We had two readings in our commitment ceremony by family members, and the whole ceremony was still only 20 minutes from start to finish. And dinner is also a great other time to have some guests share words, songs, music. We sort of had a mini impromptu karaoke session during our dinner 🙂
