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?

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.

Lol, If you google my legal name, you get about a million hits (mostly a famous author who write books on dream-analysis), but if you google the name my friends know me by (my first name & mum's Hungarian maiden name), it goes me, me, my cousin, more on my cousin, my other cousins, my uncle, my aunt, more on my uncle, my Nagypapa & my mum. Then it switches to Hungarian websites, lol.

My Nan actually spelled mum's name wrong on her birth certificate (2 'k's) & mum didn't know about it for a while... it ended up causing troubles when she went to get her licence. She got it fixed as soon as she found out though. She usually uses the nikname Miki... all my cousins call her Aunty Miki & she wants to be known to her grandkids as "Mama Miki" (she's only in her early 40s & doesn't want to be Grandma or Nan - especially since Nan's most likely still going to be around... Rob's parents love the idea of being called Grandma & Grandpa anyway, lol).

Ah, nice! That'd make it easier! Hungarian tradition says money is pinned to the dress, or put in the brides shoes (won't work with my strappy heels, lol!).
