My fiancée and I are planning our wedding and reception and while we got most things figured out, he wants to have a dollar dance and some type of game at our reception and I horribly detest this. I am not a stick in the mud either I just know if I were in my guests shoes and someone sprung a silly game on me, I would be mortified and embarrassed. As for the dollar dance? I cannot stand when people do this, it is in my opinion tacky and a lot of weddings that I have been to here in the midwest (Iowa) have had the dollar dance. My fiancée believes that this is 'tradition' and he is pretty set. I am all about compromising but these two things are something that I am strongly putting my foot down and saying 'no' to. I love my fiancée very much and we both know how to have fun but I honestly do not understand why we can't have fun without the DD and games. Should I compromise and tell him he can have one or the other and not both?
