money dance

So I know a lot of people are doing a money dance.  And I am now considering doing one too.  Let's be honest ~I love that we get to make some extra cash but is it tacky?  I feel a little weird about it?  How about you? Who is doing a money dance and what do you feel about it?  I'm just worried about what my guests would think?

we did it.. it was fun! our friggin dj called out n said "$20's would be greatly appreciated" (he was totally joking u could tell) but mainly everyone i danced with gave me $20 bills or $50! ha!


i jus like seeing how creative everyone gets with the money.. crowns.. tails.. necklaces etc :)

I don't know if its in our culture I don't even know where the idea came from~ haha I'm russian/jewish/american and FI is bulgarian/Christian/english so I have no idea we aren't doing anything with our own cultures I feel like we are having a very "american" wedding.  We are going to do the jewish thing where we go up on the chairs just b/c THATS SOOOO COOL!  And we are doing 1 bulgarian thing where his mom feed us bread??? So I just don't know what others think/feel about it.

lol~ well I like the idea b/c I'm doing a father/daughter dance with my step-dad and my g-pa was like "I wanna dance with you too" and my g-pa from my dad's side will also want to dance with me. and then there is the bio-dad uggh. But anyways it would be great way to spend time. I also have a lot of people coming from out of town so this would good.  But the whole money throws it off for me is it weird that people have to pay for the dance-personally I'm like whoo hoo $$$ but what will the guests think?  Is it fun and they will just love the idea?  But then when I think we get money I also think is that wrong?

well... i'm filipino and it's kinda "tradition" to have a money dance...BUT we're not doing it b/c i'm not confortable with the pinning money on us part... and i think both my mothers would roll over twice in their graves if i did ;)   nothin' wrong with a $$$$ dance - it's just not in my fam...


we are going to have a similar dance just to spend time with oot family - we'll have them pin advice and best wishes on us instead of a "wishing tree"


up to you zilla--what does your fh think about it??


theyre actually fun - i dont feel comfy pinning the grrom so my fave is to make a crown for him... i posted  pic a few days ago on a similar thread

I have been to many weddings with a 'money dance' and didn't think it was tacky- I think it more depends on the type of people you have there- would they think so?


Were calling it the "honeymoon dance" instead- since thats our goal & registry.


Im not going to get the purses for the money etc- I want to keep it simple...


- HMM :)

LOL...HMM..I was thinking that exact thing today. I don't think we are going to do it and the only reason being is that we are both a little on the "older" side ( I'm 39, he is 46).

Yeah I hear ya....what if there's that someone that wants to dance with you and well....they smell a lil ripe...eeekkkssss...that thought has crossed my mind a time or two. That's a tough one with the oot folks.  It's going to be such a busy day that it will be impossible to spend the amount of time you want to with everyone. I asked my mom about the money dance and she too almost suffered a heart attack.  Then I had the dreadful though of............what if no one wanted to dance with me???  AAHHHHH
