I was at a wedding recently where this happened and I was wondering all night what the E board would think of it!
So the groom is a Iraq war veteran and now is a veterans disability attorney (fights the VA to get veterans their disability benefits). The bride hated the idea of guests clinking glasses to get the couple to kiss, so instead they had signs on the table telling guests that if they wanted to see the couple kiss they could donate a dollar to a veterans charity fund. So the guests went up to the DJ booth, put the money in the jar and then rang the bell next to it and the couple would kiss.
I know from lurking here that asking guests to open their wallets at your wedding is a big no-no. But I thought with the grooms background it might be different? I, personally, wasn't offended, but probably because I hate that tradition. So what do you think?
