I love/hate the idea of a dollar dance at my wedding. I love the idea of having a short amount of personal time with so many of our guests. I hate the idea of them paying for it. What are some alternatives that bees have used instead of the dollar dance?

I love the dollar dance and I am insisting that we have it at our wedding, even though it is not a traditionally seen at weddings in Massachusetts. My fiance has the same thoughts about having our guests pay to dance with us so we have decided to donate the money collected from the dollar dance to Breast Cancer Research. My Mom is a breast cancer survivor so it has meaning to us.

All the weddings I have been to gives you a shot of some kind for $1. So you can look it as they are paying for the shot and not the chance to spend time with you.

I posted this on another thread, too. (FYI)
Maybe put pens and dollar-sized paper on your tables so your guests can write out wishes for your future happiness and “pay” with those instead of dollars?

@meshay08: Giving the money to for Breast Cancer Research is the only reason I’m considering the Money Dance. My sister was just Diagnosed this last June and I almost called off the Wedding because of it – she is currently doing great , just as she promised me she would be. Other than that I just want to Dance – I don’t need to collect money for it.

Ive heard of ticket dances which is the same thing, but doesnt require a dollar. This way anyone who wants to dance with the bride or groom can, but isnt required to pay. Or for a dollar more they can have a kiss on the cheek/hand when the dance is finished

We did a dollar dance and donated all of the proceeds to the Alzheimers Association in memory of my grandmother that recently passed and FI’s grandmother who was unable to make the trip to the wedding because of her Alzheimers.

@marylandnurse: That is wonderful – I love the thought of dollar dance for charity
