Money Dance?

Are you guys gonna have a money dance at the reception?

My gut screams, "Tacky! Poor taste!" when I think about it, but my head says, "If the guests don't think it's tacky, you're a fool for not jumping on the wagon..."


What are you guys planning to do?



Edit:
Wow. I left to go Christmas shopping and came back to find all those comments! Eek!

First of all, I really wasn't intending to be inflammatory on any level. I truly apologize if my word choice offended anyone.

The tradition was something I'd never even heard of until my two wedding planner-type ladies mentioned it. They didn't indicate that it was any type of cultural thing. They actually said everyone does it and thought we'd be crazy not to.

Well, since I knew that my family a) had never included a money/dollar dance in their celebrations, and b) are also incredibly uptight about money, I figured I'd ask you folks how common it is and get a feel from there...

All I know is that it sounds like a tradition that my immediate family would prefer I opt out of - and the last thing I need from them is another fight about the wedding! I guess I'll just stick with my own family's tradition of treating money (and the taking thereof) as a very private, personal, taboo subject.

No worries. It only really bugs me that people are so dismissive about it. I would be skewered if I told people some of the stuff they do that I think is tacky, so I refrain out of respect for it being their deal and move on. There's a difference between "It's not my tradition and I've never seen it done so I think it would be completely out of place and ill-received" vs. "It's tacky. Period. I would never ask my guests for money." I just get the feeling of being looked down upon in some of the comments that come across as though it was the most disgusting thing someone could do.
