GRRRR Stupid Dollar Dance

I have my DJ and some friends REALLY pushing me to do the dollar dance.  I am sorry but I'm NOT comfortable doing it.  I think that it is rude and just begging for money.  Dancing for money makes me think of strippers....and I don't wanna feel like a stripper.  LOL  I plan on dancing with anyone that wants to....and I am not going to make them pay for it.  Sorry just had to vent somewhere.

  • Don't do it then. Make sure your DJ knows that you are against this regardless of who requests it.

  • I agree no one should be forced to do anything, especially on their wedding day. You have your reasoning and they should respect it. A little insight into the dollar dance is that no one is obligated or forced to dance during this time at all. Because so many people do not bring cash to a wedding,the DJ should not want to make this a large chunk of the evening. Set no more than 15 minutes aside for the dance to ensure everyone who wants to dance has a chance. Maybe 20 minutes if you have a large guest list.  That is just FYI, to show you that it is not a stripper's dance.
  • Ugh, I agree with you 100%! Tell them all to drop it, because it is YOUR wedding, not theirs! If my DJ kept pushing like that, I would tell them that it's either no dollar dance or no DJ. Then I would find a new DJ! Smile

    Wait...some women *don't* want to feel/look/act like strippers on their wedding day? I thought for sure after hearing all of the women on SYTTD saying they wanted to look "sexy" and buying those sheer pnina tornai dresses, that "stripper" was the new hit bridal style.

    HAHAHAHA Crazy I know, I want to look classy and beautiful at my wedding....not skanky and trashy.  And yes it makes me crazy all the woman on SYTTD saying that they want to be "sexy".  Geez it is your wedding day, be classy and beautiful, leave sexy for the honeymoon. 

    I put my foot down with my DJ and friends and told them that I am NOT comfortable with it....so I'm not doing it!

    Do what you're comfortable with. I went to my cousin-in-law's wedding and it was done well. Everyone provided the bill they wanted and was provided with a shot. Everyone had a blast and it didn't seem odd or distasteful.

  • I does come across stripperish and won't lie it was my first thought.  I don't need money thrown at me, I would just decline remember the DJ is working for YOU!

    I went to a wedding on my fiance's side, and they did both the dollar dance and a dollar race! This was the first time I'd seen either, and I was appalled that both were done. My fiance knows I hate both ideas, and is fine with not doing them. I will say that when a shot is given to each dancer, it does make it seem like less of a "money grab." I don't mind that kind of dollar dance so much. Our DJ had a questionaire that we had to fill out asking "Dollar Dance Yes/No" and in the comments section I wrote "no dollar race either, even if requested" because I worry his older relatives might expect both of these and begin waving dollars around :P  So good for you for standing up for what you wanted!
