I am still in wedding mode (and will be for a while so bear with me)
I have a niece getting married in November that I am helping with some decorations and then my daughter is getting married in April. With that in mind, for the Color Challenge over on the Bling Chronicles this month I made a Money Dance Box. For those who don't know what that is...at a formal wedding people pay a dollar, or whatever they want in bills, to dance with the bride or groom. This was a tradition started many years ago with the intent of helping the young couple get started. Here is a bit of it's history...
Traditions - Money Dance History
The "Money Dance" is alive and well, and it's a very popular custom at many wedding receptions all over the world.
The money dance is traditional in several different cultures. In most cases, it is a dance where the male guests pay for the privilege of dancing with the bride, although in today's weddings, the female guests also pay for the privilege of dancing with the groom. Each person who dances with the bride (or groom) gets just a few seconds before another guest cuts in. The money is for spending on their honeymoon.
My daughters in-laws to be have never heard of such a thing. They are Baptist and as such are not supposed to dance. I think that may be why but I could be wrong. Is this a tradition in your family? Have you heard of it? I'd love some feed back because according to them I'm crazy but hey, we've always done that at weddings where I'm originally from.
So here is the box I created out of a wood treasure box. It has a lock though I haven't attached it in the photos.
Here's the colors and info for the challenge if you'd like to join us!
