- Wedding: July 2013
My DH mentioned this idea on our ride home from our wedding weekend, and now I’m so sad we didn’t think of it before our wedding. But, I thought I’d post it on here so maybe someone else will try it!
I realize that many Bees dislike the idea of a money dance, myself included. I also realize that I’m probably not the only Bee whose family pestered her on more than one occasion to have a money dance. When they’d spout their favorite argument of “I’ve NEVER been to a wedding without a money dance!” I’d come back with “Well, in a few months you won’t be able to say that anymore” and move on.
However, there’s a charity that our venue partners with, and donates all their proceeds to. DH’s idea was to have a money dance, and donate all the money we receive to the charity. I feel like this would have been such a wonderful compromise, to get to dance with the guests and please my family, but not feel bad about taking money from guests, since it would be going to support a great cause!
So if there are any Bees feeling torn or uncomfortable about having a money dance, and there is a charity or cause close to your heart, perhaps this is an option for you.
