Well the Knot isn’t any fun! hahaha, but seriously, I have seen lots of dollar dances and buffets. They are so stuffy at the Knot!

It’s a regional thing. Frankly I would have never allowed any of those things (except the buffet dinner) at my wedding and I do not participate in any of them either. But I wouldn’t call them trashy, just not my cup of tea.

I think the dollar dance thing is regional… Every wedding I’ve ever been to has had a dollar dance, yet I’ve heard from many other Bees that they’ve NEVER seen a dollar dance at a wedding.  I think it’s so wrapped up with wedding tradition in my part of the country that people don’t consider it “trashy”.  We won’t be doing one, but I’m not offended when I go to weddings where other people do that.

LOL. The knot must be super snobby! We had a buffet dinner and did not have any of the other things you mentioned. But I would NEVER consider any of those things “trashy”!

We have dollar dances here, but I know one bride who was a huge Knotty and she refused to because it was trashy.

Oh dear knot, how I hate you so….

I am from GA..and the dances and the dollar dance are not the norm. In fact I have never been to a wedding with any of these. Then again, EVERY wedding I have been to has been buffet, not plated (and mine is too) It’s cheaper. But I have been to two VERY ritzy expensive weddings, and the food was still buffet.

never seen a dollar dance done but around here we’re all southern baptist so we don’t dance haha

but all the other things i don’t think are trashy we’re doing a buffett so we can accomodate food allergies and diets easily

the knot would say i’m trashy for having a church wedding/reception and not shelling out big bucks i only like the knot for their pics lol

the girls on those boards are horribly mean i was thrilled beyond joy when i found the bee and how sweet everyone here is

Yeah, I’m sure lots of it is a regional thing.

I try to stay away from the Knot. They’re just a bunch of snobby beeyatches, lol

I have no clue what the dollar dance is (but I will be googling it in a minute). 

And I live in the south and every wedding that I’ve gone to from casual to ballroom/country club has had a buffet…and I prefer it!  If I ever get married, regardless of the budget I will do a buffet. 

Also some of the weddings I’ve gone to, especially the more casual ones  have had  some kind of “line” or “group” dance/shuffle but I think it’s cute and gets a lot of folks who normally don’t dance out on the dance floor.  🙂

I have noticed that too.  There will be someone posting a serious problem that they want a solution to or some ideas and the knotties will just rip them apart!  They are so mean there, which is why I switched to the Weddingbee boards.

I’m from New York City, and until I went to a wedding in Michigan a few years ago, had never heard of the “dollar dance”!

So, I think it’s a regional/cultural thing.  I’m Italian, and I bet more than half of you have never heard the (oh-so-classy) “Dominic the Donkey” song.  I will be banning it from my wedding. 🙂 

GO ahead, google it…

@Ms. MoxieMonkey:  I’M FROM A BIG ITALIAN FAMILY AND WE LOVE DOMINIC THE DONKEY!  That being said, it’s never been played at any of our weddings.   Just a Christmas Eve or two…or fifty.
