The Money Dance or Wedding Dollar Dance is a traditional part of the wedding reception in several cultures andregions of the world. The custom originally came from Poland in the early 1900s and has remained as part of the weddingcelebration to this day. The general idea began with male guests pinning a dollar (or any other denomination) on the bride's dress or veil for the privilege of dancing with her. Each guest only dances with the bride for a few moments before anotherguest cuts in.
Couples often had very little money for their honeymoon and setting up their household. The MoneyDance was a way for their family and friends to help them begin their life together.
Today, the Dollar Dance is stillvery popular in many cultures though the practice of pinning money to a bride's dress has largely been replaced with theuse of money bags or money purses.
The bride can carry a small elegant money purse on her wrist. A larger bridalmoney bag is often a good idea because it can hold gift cards as well as cash. Sometimes a flower girl is asked to help byholding the money bag during the dance. The money purses and money bags are fashioned from luxurious fabrics andfinished with exquisite detail. Any of the moneybags can be personalized with your names or monogram so that the moneybag or money purse will become a treasured keepsake.
