Anyone use monopods for dim indoor lighting at weddings: either at ceremonies not-permitting flashes or at receptions - for available light shots?

Pros and cons please... thanks.

Tripods and monopods are too much hastle, I prefer IS lenses. If there's not enough light and you don't have IS then a pod of some kind is essential.

I shot a wedding this past Saturday...no flash allowed and ISO 1600 @ f/2.8 1/125th was barely gettin' it. It had a wonderful balcony where I decided to shoot the ceremony proper from, using my 70-200 non-IS...I used a monopod easily and was able to shoot at Tv 1/125 and even a few at 1/80.

I lean into the monopod too much, so I have to use flash, higher iso, or a tripod.

i hate tripods and ive never used a monopod, id prolly use one if i had a really heavy get up...but the weighty stuff i have now i can handle it with a wrist brase. (I have RSI from being in secretarial)
But like Time - i get IS lenses it usually helps big time!
