I am not planning on having one at my wedding.  I had never even heard of them until my the event coordinator at my venue asked if I was having an “apron dance” and I was like, what is that?

 

From my understanding it is often a regional/cultural thing, but I have never been to a wedding that had one, so I don’t know what it is like.

To me, it seems pretty taky.  If you want guests to give you money instead of gifts, send the word thru the grapevine (via family, bridesmaids, groomsmen, etc).  People will spend what they are financially able to afford.

Not planning on it!  I agree, I think it is a little tacky.  I always think it is a little weird.

I have seen a couple money dances that are really fun, classy and great events! I do not want one at my wedding but I do not have any sort of issue with other enjoying/benefiting from them

Personally, I am not having one because I do not want to ask my guests for money.  However, I have been to weddings where it was done to help the couple with their honeymoon and it worked out well for them.

It’s tradition in my family to have a money dance. So we’ll have one. It sounds like so much fun having someone pin a $20 bill on you just to dance with you. We could use the money on our honeymoon. Yes definitely.

Personally, I am not a fan of them. My SIL had one and she keeps pushing for me to do it, but it just isn’t me. I know they got quite a bit of money, but I just can’t bring myself to do it.

We are not having one either. I just wouldn’t feel comfortable with it. We are not going to do the bouquet or garter toss either.

I am not doing it, but to each his own. I certainly do not think that it is “tacky”! If you like it go for it! =)

Some of my close friends did the money dance. It can be fun, and gives multiple people a chance to dance with the bride and/or groom. Sometimes it can also be awkward if not enough people are lining up to dance. Personally, I will not be doing one at my wedding, because I feel like it’s blatantly requesting money, and I don’t want my guests to feel obligated. To each his own.

I don’t plan on having one. I just would not feel comfortable and I think it would make my guests uncomfortable. But to each their own. A friend of ours did one but she didnt get much money. There were only 2 people who danced with her. It was a small wedding but still embarrassing.

i am opting not to do the money dance, mainly just because i don’t feel comfortable with it. i don’t think that it is a crappy idea or anything though, i know it is really common so whichever way you prefer to go is acceptable in the wedding world
