Did you have a tripod? Or a flash?

No, I didn't bring a tripod. I didn't want to look ridiculous and pretentious.
Flash only works within so many feet and what you end up doing is illuminating the heads of people nearby. (I remember that and now looking it up, it's further than I thought. ) I was trying to see what I could do without a flash (I also didn't want to be flash-obnoxious since I was practicing) but the lighting made the color wonky.

There is no good rule for indoor shots. Because when I used auto (I think with flash on) the info showed the shot was taken with an ISO of 200. I think 800 was without the flash.

There is no good rule, you're right. I just point and press with my automatic, and some shots work, others don't. I'm constantly surprised.

I wasn't really concerned with getting pics for them (or me) so I was just using it for manual practice. Would've been cool to get some really good shots though. If I was really concerned I'd just go with auto.

Lucky them - the husband's sister and brother-in-law do photography so they both took a ton of pics and it won't cost them a thing other than to print their own pics. My aunt-in-law said they'll just be given the disks. I'm hoping there's a good one of our table where you can see hubby and I so I can scrap it. We got to sit at a front table with my a-i-l (and her hubby) who is the bride's grandmother. And also did/paid for the wedding arrangements.

did you change the white balance settings to compensate for the lighting?

I've been trying to get photos of indoor soccer this winter. If I use a slower setting for the reduced light I get too much blur, even if I used a tripod (which I don't) because the players are moving. A flash is fine as long as the action is directly in front of me and close - which is rare.

I imagine a wedding would be easier, but still challenging.

The indoor lighting wasn't that great. The ceremony was in the conference center and the reception was in a function room. It had chandeliers with those flame-shaped type bulbs. I don't remember what the lighting was like in the wedding room. I don't think that was quite as bad as the reception but still was difficult to figure out and not get blur. (and try and cut down on grain)

For movement, you can bump up the ISO but then you get more grain in the pics. It's a conundrum.
