In the Bridal Forum the subject of a Dollar Dance was brought up in a recent thread at BanglesandBrides.com.

It is a wedding reception tradition where the gentlemen in attendance would pay a dollar to the bride for a dance and the ladies would pay a dollar to the groom for a dance with him.

I must admit, prior to reading the thread I’d never heard of a “Dollar Dance” but I personally think it’s a delightful custom. I am curious if the wedding reception tradition of a “Dollar Dance” is rooted in the customs of a particular ethnicity or geographic region. I would sure appreciate if anyone could enlighten me.
