First of all, I know a lot of people are against these, but in the area I live, they are the norm. However, I am having a hard time picking a song for the dollar dance. Two options I have came up with are “Good Life” by OneRepublic (I like the upbeat vibe of it) and “Love Is A Beautiful Thing” by Phil Vassar (I like country, but wonder how this would be as a dollar dance song?) Any advice would be appreciated, and feel free to suggest your own ideas. We are having a rustic wedding.

Hmmm…my cousin played this old rock song called “money”, by Pink Floyd
I also found “love don’t cost a thing”, by J.Lo and a few others. Just google it…this is a big thing on my Daddy’s side of the family, but not my Mother’s. So we won’t be doing it. I’ll tell ya now, from my experience with my HUGE paternal family. Don’t think 1 song is gonna cut it. that dance probably takes more like 3-5 songs in my family. We never adhere to the “one dance” thing. we set up however many (number of) songs, and that’s the time you have, not one song per person(which I’ve seen, and wanted to start stabbing people!! LOL)…

@SoonToBeMrsDonnieW: The only thing I could really think of for a kind of fun non-slow dance was Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, but I don’t think that’s really appropriate. I kind of understand the concept of a dollar dance, but I’m still a little fuzzy and don’t really understand the point of them. Anybody care to explain (for the billionth time)?

Thanks for your replies!I didn’t think about needing more than one song…
@BridieBea: during the dollar dance people come up and pay money to dance with the bride and groom for about thirty seconds to a minute. I’m not exactly sure of the origin of it but it is for sure a Midwest tradition where I’m from. Its just another washy for the bride and groom to spend time with guests and the guests to gift money to the couple.
