So what was it? They were asking people to donate money to dance with them? Or donate drinks? I’m super confused???

Regardless, sounds super weird lol can you please give us more deets?!

Oh lord lol when I opened your post I thought you were going to be asking opinions on doing this for your own wedding! As if the DJ actually said “a dollar isn’t enough”. What was the alcohol donation part, like they expected people to come forward with bottles of booze?

Yikes, they definitely read their crowd wrong. I try not to judge dollar dances, especially if it’s the norm in their group, but the comment of “a dollar is not enough” probably turned a lot of people off or embarrassed people who didn’t feel comfortable donating more.

Oh my gosh. How tacky!! Money dances are tacky enough I feel, but “a dollar isn’t enough”?! I have to know.. did anyone step forward? Most people would probably willingly give a few bucks, but in that context, probably not. I’m sure they lost a lot in “donations” that night.

Oy. I bet there was a really long line for the restrooms–I know I would have made a beeline…

Where I am fron dollar dances are very common. I can’t think of a wedding around here that I went to that didn’t do the dollar dance tbh. However, I agree that the comment the DJ made was not appropriate. I also think the dollar dance should be something all (bride, groom, DJ) have agreed upon prior.

I absolutely hate dollar dances. I’ve been to 2 weddings where they had them and they are sooo cringey. Keeping in mind in Canada we don’t even HAVE dollar bills, so its automatically more…

I can’t imagine trying to amp it up with whatever this alcohol donation thing is. My goodness.
