I know some of you will give negative feedback and say how trashy or rude this is so let me start off by saying where i come from this is HUGE to people and they expect it!!! My FH wants to do the dollar…donation dance basicly because we are paying for our honeymoon and some of the wedding. I am okay with it because where i come from people just expect this and they look forward to it. Have any other brides done this or planning on doing this? What songs did you use? I have looked online but some of them are really lame…Ideas please.

Hello!!! I have never been to a wedding that DIDN”T have the dollar dance, so you are seriously not trashy or rude. In PA, they usually play a polish song and have the bride wear a babushka (spelling?). I’ve also seen segregated male/female dollar dances and “It’s Raining Men” played for the men. Go for it – people want to shower you on your special day!

My cousin had the dollar dance at her wedding and I didn’t even know what it was for! haha we just thought it was a fun chance to dance with the bride and groom. and we are totally going to do it at our wedding. I think it’s a nice chance to get up close and personal with the family

@rebecca_wcc: In my area, it’s EXPECTED. We did it and got over $400! I was shocked. At first we didn’t want to do it, but my dad talked us into it saying that it’s expected at a wedding.

I am Mexican and attended many Mexican weddings with money dances growing up. In my experience this was always a fun part of the wedding that people greatly enjoyed.
I’m a shy person so there’s NO WAY we’re going to do this. But I wouldn’t be surprised or off put to see this at any wedding.

I don’t think it’s rude or trashy, it’s a tradition. Some people may not like some traditions while they embrace others. It’s not like you asked for money as a gift on the invites, that would be trashy and rude.

It’s not common in my area so I’ve never seen one and don’t really know how they work, but I’m assuming people pay to dance with you one on one? I’d play something that is more of a two-step/jive music that you really dance together to, rather than something where you just dance beside each other/in a group. If that makes sense…
