I bought a set on davids bridal and it comes with a Money bag/gift card thing. What is it used for? How is it used and isnt it rude to have a bag at the wedding with sole purpose of getting peoples money? Please explain

Lots of different cultures give money to the couple at the reception. Some cultures or families do a ‘dollar dance’ (explained here: http://www.buzzle.com/articles/dollar-money-dance-wedding.html). This would probably be what the money bag is for.
I didn’t answer the poll because I feel neutrally about them… It’s not commonly done to give money at the reception in my culture but it’s commonly done in other cultures and I’m sure they wouldn’t find it offensive.

I would call it a card bag, not a money bag. But it’s likely that you’ll receive cards, possibly with money in them, on your big day. It’s nice to have a pretty bag to put them in for safekeeping, otherwise you’ll be walking around with several envelopes.

some people dance and get dollars pinned to their dress, or stuffed in a money bag. I have never seen this in person, and could hardly believe it when I read about it online!

I have a distant memory of seeing someone wearing a money bag and lots of people carrying the bride on shoulders dancing her around and people putting money. Another memory of people paying to dance with the bride.

I went to my cousin’s wedding this past weekend. They did the ‘bridal dance’ and no one bated an eye because in our family it is UBER traditional to do it.
It is so traditional in my family that when my sister got married a few years ago, she didn’t want to have the money be a part of the bridal dance but merely a time during this particular traditional song to dance with anyone who wanted to dance with the bride. Well, people got upset that she wasn’t collecting money and started giving it to her anyway!
I too plan on doing the bridal dance without the money aspect but it would be handy if my family reacts the same way to have the option of having the bag nearby in which to put the money.
