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.

Whoah, whoah whoah. I am not speaking about your specific variation of the tradition is, nor to anyones. I get the concept, I get how it started and I get what it is supposed to mean. However, I still think it is tacky. Hey, in my culture the bride is supposed to walk around handing little bits of ribbon that are supposed to represent her purity to everyone in attendance. It's my culture, and I think it is tacky as well.

As I said, everyone is entitled to an opinion. My claim had nothing to do with any specific ethnic background or anything of the sort. Please be respectful of people's rights to an opinion, as I am of yours.
