I don’t think I’m ever going to see these types of things as appropriate? It might be because I’ve never been to one and they have never been done in my family, so it would totally have to be explained to everyone and all my guests would undoubtedly see it as “oh, so she’s asking us for money now?”

I think there’s also something rubbing me the wrong way because the aim of the game is to get the most money possible.  At least with a dollar dance, the donors get to spend time with the couple? 

(Of course since you say you went to one at a friend’s wedding, I can assume they are done whereever you are, so take my comment with a grain of salt.)

Lol I never heard of this… but I don’t think I could do it with having a cash bar… they need those dollars to drink at my wedding =(

I’d totally have a song about money lol… “Mo Money Mo Problems”, “Can’t Buy Me Love”, “Take the Money and Run”

I didn’t answer your other question… as a prize maybe a gift card or make something personal and special?

huh? so the bridal party runs around the venue to something like a chicken dance song with a basket and people throw money into it?  is that a cultural thing?

I don’t like the dollar dance or the dollar game you described.  I think they are both a bit “tacky” for lack of a better word.  But, that’s just my opinion.  It’s your wedding, so do as you wish, girl!

@amw511s: Thats a bit snarky the dollar dance is a traditional dance in the Latino community.  Some cultures and individuals have taken this tradition to benefit themselves and taken it out of context, but it has been around for generations in Mexican weddings.

@Future_Sovesky: Did you know that during Nixons administration the term Hispanic was coined  and utilized  in a negative connotation to conglomerate all spanish speaking individuals, therefore I dispise using the word Hispanic. Even though there is still debate if we are chicanos, latinos, latinas. I just say I’m a human being . Laughing  Did my dissertation on Mexican Americans during Great Depression to present

@amw511s: It like other ethnicities that put up a card box or dollar tree, that could be preceived as “tacky” to someone that is unfamiliar with that practice.   See I guess being an educator my “cultural lenses are less fogged” Laughing
