* The EucharistAs for participation in Communion (eating the bread and drinking the wine), the officiant will indicate who is allowed to partake of the elements â€“ bread (pieces of bread or wafer) and wine (usually grape juice).Â This information is generally printed in the wedding program as well.
Communion may be served to guests in their pews, or people may have to walk up the aisle to get the elements. Just observe and follow the example of other guests who are familiar with the proceedings. Guests can certainly choose to decline from participating in this.
