I’d never even heard of it until I joined the bee, so I know I wouldn’t do one myself, but if it isn’t strange where you are from then *maybe.* I think I would find it awkward even if it was “the norm.”

It’s common where I’m from too, but since we both have massive families it is just not logical. We’d be doing nothing but slow dancing with other people all night long.

Of course, it’s up to you and your Fiance what you would like to do. I’ve seen it done plenty of times, so you wouldn’t be out of line!

Personally not a huge fan of them, but there are plenty of people that are for various and sweet reasons.  I would talk to your FH and see if the family dynamics is open to it, if so, then go for it.

It’s common here too, but I am not a fan. We vetoed that one real quick.

I think if it is relatively common or if you think your friends/family would be comfortable then it is a cute idea. I think they sound fun but my Fiance would never go for it lol. Besides, I don’t think I would be comfortable with it, I don’t like much attention haha

Haha I had never heard of this (dont go to many weddings) until my Fiance told me his mom wanted me to do one. We haven’t set a date, picked a venue, etc. And she’s already told him I have to do the money dance lol. Apparently it’s huge in his family, people will be expecting it. I still haven’t decided how I feel!

Do whatever you are comfortable with! I had also never heard of them until joining WB. I think even if I had known about it I wouldnt have done it but if thats what you are used to and want to do then do it!

Depends on what your guests are used to. I personally have never seen a live dollar dance, nor do I know anyone who has. But its okay in your circles then do it.

This is the urban myth of weddings.  Everyone I know has been to a wedding where they have done this and everyone makes fun of it.  It’s terribly tacky.  I believe it’s more popular in states where there isn’t an open bar or a bar with a running tab that the bride and groom pick up after the wedding.

My family really enjoys it. I’m not sure if we’ll do it because I don’t know how FI’s family would feel about it. We might do it anyway. I really don’t think they’re as big of a deal as people seem to think, though. They usually take five minutes or at tops, two songs. People who want to participate do, and those that don’t still mingle and/or eat.

I think I pretty much agree ( I quickly read through the posts), if it is common, comfortable, or something you would like to do.  I would say do it.  From where I am from it would be unusual not to do it.  I don’t think I have ever been to a wedding here where they havent’ done it and that is including recently.

Love them! Ever wedding I have been to has done one, so I am definitely doing one. It’s one way to interact with all your guests and have a fun competition against your husband.
