Honestly, at all the weddings I’ve been to (which is a lot), I’ve only ever seen note cards or printed reading on a sheet of paper used.  You could get crafty and make an elegant clip board or something, I suppose, but this sounds like you’re just making extra work for yourself.  I won’t say that people don’t notice, because obviously I remember seeing readers use sheets of paper as a guide, only that it’s such a normal occurence that it isn’t going to seem weird or sloppy.  I would just say make sure the paper is in good condition, and not all mangled from being in someone’s pocket all morning. Perhaps printing it out on finer stationery would be a nice balance between making it more elegant without totally overthinking things.

I’m printing the readings out in a large easy to read font on file cards.  Maybe not super elegant, but it’s innocuous and efficient.

What about putting the reading material on notecards inside a pretty vintage book or notebook?

Or a piece of bark?

 I personally think paper is fine but you could also use a pretty notecard that fits in with your decor or invitations. I definitely think this goes under “what no one notices but the bride” 🙂

An ornate kindle case (either with a notebook in it, or a kindle with PDF’s of the readings on it) or a lectern.

@ivoryowl:  I printed the readings in two columns (landscape orientation) on letter-size cardstock.  Then I added a cover made of decorative paper in our wedding colors, folded the pages booklet-style, and stapled them together.  Voila!
