Default Conditioning with Honey and Brown Sugar

I recently brewed a honey weizen and the recipe calls for adding honey and brown sugar to bottle condition. What effect if any would it have if I just added the usual corn sugar?

It will taste a bit different, and you won't have the same % fermentable content in corn sugar (brown sugar and honey are usually lower) so the carbonation is likely to be higher.

I have bottled with brown sugar before and I can tell you that the flavor contribution is very subtle....as in, if you weren't looking for it you'd never know the difference. As for honey, I can't say, but usually honey is added towards the end of fermentation or in secondary for honey flavor. The corn sugar will just give carbonation with no flavor contribution whatsoever.

Honey is highly fermentable, and won't leaving much sugar behind, in my understanding.
