Maybe it’s a sign of the times, but the Dollar Dance is all the rage at weddings these days. Originating in Poland around the 1900s, the dance started as a way for newlyweds to get some cash to start them on the road to married life. Often, the money was used to help the couple afford a honeymoon. At the reception, the male guests would take turns dancing with the bride, and put a dollar in her purse. At some weddings, an apron would be attached to the bride’s dress, so guests could place the money inside. Bride’s sometimes had the money pinned to their veils, or even a piece of material sewn onto the dress.
