Sorry, not a fan.  I think it likens back to asking for money.  I usually buy raffle tickets at charity events, so really not a fan of the idea, it would just be awkward.

I say if you were thinking of doing the dollar dance stick with that. I dont know that I like the idea of someone winning a gift at a reception

I say no too. Stick with the dollar dance if that’s what you really wanted.

Atleast with a dollar dance your guests will actually get to dance with you. The raffle idea sounds like a fundraiser which is a big no-no for a wedding reception.

I agree with other posters. I am not a fan!

Vote = Heck no.

It’s a wedding not a fund raiser.  You are already asking your guests to take time out, come to your celebration, and most guests will bring a gift.  Asking for more is really just pushing it, and may change people’s perceptions of you.
