@Vickyjharden2012:  I don’t know much about the dollar dance, but I’m aware that a lot of people do find it somewhat rude.  Hopefully other brides can shed some light on the situation.

It depends on where you’re from and your friends and family (like, whether or not its acceptable). They’re very normal where I’m from (Michigan). My FI’s cousin did one and had the Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man head up the line for the bride and groom (one on each side of the dance floor) and collect the money from people as they stepped up. I believe they also kept tabs on how long the dance was (it was typically 30 seconds to a minute, I think).

I went to a wedding where they did the dollar dance and it was a tad awkward because the bride and groom had asked for monetary gifts in lieu of presents so a lot of people didn’t participate because they felt it wasn’t neccesary for them to shell out more cash. On the other hand it was cute because some parents gave the younger children some bills to go run up and dance with them.

They started out with the bride and groom dancing together (an mc explained what was going to happen after a few minutes) then they switched it to the father and daugter/groom and mother then a few of the bridal party stood up and went over and tapped them on the shoulder and switched partners. Once people understood what was going on they joined in. After that it became an open dance floor. 

As for music they played a mix of slow and mellow upbeat songs. 

I hoped this helps and wasn’t overly confusing.
