So, my father commented on how he liked the tradition of the dollar dance. I think he feels it is all very godfather-esque or something. Anyway, I am more than happy to oblige, because I think it is a nice way to get some one on one time with the guests. My question is,how do you make it not tacky? and where do you put the money?
Thanks so much, I would love to hear stories from brides who have done it! thanks so much

I have been to a wedding with a dollar dance and I never really thought it was tacky until someone mentioned to me that it was tacky. I just thought it was something you do lol. The wedding I went to the Maid/Matron of Honor held the money for the bride and the Bridesmaid or Best Man held the money for the groom. I find it really hard to believe that all these people think its tacky and yet they wait in like for 10 minutes to dance with the bride or groom for 15 seconds. I dont know, i guess it all depends on your family.

Definintely depends on your family and your guests. My parents and my Future In-Laws would be horrified, but my friends family is totally all for it!

I”ve seen this thousands of times, it’s just really common in our region. I’ve never seen it where people apparently pin the money on or something. It’s always done around here with the Bridesmaid or Best Man and Maid/Matron of Honor being in charge of a line to dance with the bride and groom. They have a glass (from the bar or something) that people put their money into and take their turn. Pretty simple. I always like when people do it – it’s nice to have some one-on-one time to dance with people. I think I’ve seen a dollar dance that once lasted a max of three songs in a larger wedding, but usually pretty sure it’s just two.

It seems like the two alternatives are 1: pinning money on the bride or groom and 2: having a small bag or cup to put money in held by a member of the bridal party. Hee- how much do you like your dress? I’d be worried about being poked with all the pins!
