Let's talk about the more recently debated, “Dollar Dance”...
One of the most controversial wedding traditions is the Dollar Dance (also called the Money Dance). Expected in some cultures and regions, abhorred in others, the Dollar Dance is a dance where guests line up and give a dollar to the bride or groom in exchange for a dance. Though each couple only dances for a few moments, the dance can go on for a while until everyone has had a turn.
One nice aspect of this is that the bride and groom have the opportunity to personally thank each guest for coming and chat for a moment with them. However, it can also be seen as a tacky way to extort more money from guests who have already spent quite a bit on transportation, lodging, and a wedding gift. Sometimes couples make the decision to have the Dollar Dance because it is expected on either the bride or grooms side. Unfortunately, one side of the family will probably be offended. Ultimately, in effort to qualm everyone’s emotions, measures like putting a note at each table explaining what the Dollar Dance is and that it is a cultural tradition are being taken.
