Look up the dollar dance. Or you could do a polish blessing. Google will give you good examples!

Hmm, from a post I JUST read, I know that the dollar dance is a Polish tradition. Mrs. Wedding also did some lengthy pieces about Polish wedding traditions. She mentions some of them here, and there are additional links at the bottom or if you go to her page. http://www.weddingbee.com/2010/05/14/polish-wedding-traditions-3/

@ChiBride09:  I was actually surprised by how few things my family ended up doing at our wedding.  I kept being told that I was going to get the traditional Polish wedding blessing at the rehearsal dinner, but it didn’t happen.  🙁  Perhaps you could ask your FILs about that, though?

The one thing we did do as a nod to my ancestry was the father-daughter dance.  My dad and I danced a polka.

My aunt did a dollar dance at her wedding, but I didn’t want one of those.

We included some bread and salt in the ceremony.  His family are all from Poland but when I asked them about traditions they were all like uhhhhhhh… wear white?  It was funny.

My SO’s best friend, and his best friend’s family are Polish. We have been to 3 weddings were they put this lace wreath on the Brides head to replace the veil called a “czypeck” and a cord is placed with a tiny pink doll, these are to symbolize her role as a married woman.While doing this, the family circles around the bride.

An the groom puts a hat with various items on it, to look goofy(usually a fedora or cowboy hat) with seahsells, bottlecaps, ninnys, feminie pads, candy wrappers, etc. This is so the couple always has laughter. I posted a link above for the full info

Here is a pic of the czypeck and the hat from a friends wedding for inspiration.
