Dollar Dance? Heard of it?

Recommended Posts

Yup, all the wedding I have gone to have the Dollar Dance. My mom asked if we are going to do this but there is no way I can ask my guests to pay to come a thousand miles to see my get married and then pay to have a dance with me.

 

If I was having the wedding at home, I would probably end up doing it though, my whole family would expect it.

 

We pin the money on the bride and groom.

I have never been to a wedding without a dollar dance. LOL! Must be a total Cali thing too.

 

We are not going to do it, since our guests spent so much money to come to our wedding. I have always found it tacky.

yeah if you ask on the knot P&E board you will get attacked. they are mean over there! they hate DWs, trashing the dress & just about anything else.

Really? Even a TTD? Closed minded old biddies. Glad we have this forum and everyone is so nice. :)

I never saw it until I went to a family wedding in Michigan.

 

I personally don't care for it so we didn't do it. With the stuff we want to do to the new house, maybe we should have!

yeah they say "it's so wasteful, you could have donated the dress."

it can still be dontated after it's worn in the ocean
SO many parts of a wedding are wasteful. you could skip a wedding all together & donate the money.
What's wasteful about amazing pictures? Pictures are the material possession I value more than any other.


OK, i know preaching to the choir, but I get really annoyed by those P&E girls. close minded old biddies is right :)

I don't think it's tacky....down here it's expected. Just a matter of the culture, I guess. At my first wedding the DJ just announced it was our Dollar Dance and we were like "okay." Since we have never doscussed having one. Here the best man gets money from the women that wana dance with the groom and the maid of honor gets money from the guys that wanna dance with the bride.

 

 

Jay and I didn't do this though....seems silly at a DW since everyone paid so much to go to your wedding.

It's a tradition in our family to have a DD, and I always thought they were fun. So do guests. I get so sick of people saying how trashy and tacky it is. It's about havinf fun. People need to loosen up! I doubt we'll have on at our DW since people are already spending a lot of money to come.

I never heard about this until I was here on the forum. There was mention of this not to long ago and that is when I found out about these. Really I think that it all depends on what traditions, your family and the area that you live in or come from are used too. We don't do the dollar dance, but most weddings I have ever been to the bride gets kidnapped and the guest are asked to donate $$ for the randsom to get her back. The $ is usually collected by the BM in a cowboy boot. As for dances with the bride and groom, the bride gets the song, 'I knew the bride when she used to rock n roll' and the groom gets 'I'm to sexy' and usually gets slightly stripped down by all the women dancing around him.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
