Money Bags, Money Purses and Money Boxes

The 'Money Dance' or 'Wedding Dollar Dance' is a traditional part of the wedding reception in several cultures and regions of the world. The custom originally came from Poland in the early 1900s and has remained as part of the wedding celebration 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 another guest cuts in.

Couples often had very little money for their honeymoon and setting up their household. The Money Dance was a way for their family and friends to help them begin their life together.

Today, the Dollar Dance is still very popular in many cultures though the practice of pinning money to a bride's dress has largely been replaced with the use of money bags or money purses.

The bride can carry a small elegant money purse on her wrist. A larger bridal money bag is often a good idea because it can hold gift cards as well as cash. Sometimes a flower girl is asked to help by holding the money bag during the dance. The money purses and money bags are fashioned from luxurious fabrics and finished with exquisite detail. Any of the moneybags can be personalized with your names or monogram so that the money bag or money purse will become a treasured keepsake.

A Money Box placed where it can be easily seen on the gift table is also something to consider. Guests often worry about simply laying a small card with money in it on the table. They fear it could become lost when all the larger gifts are packed away. With a lovely Card Box made especially for these cards and gifts your guests can comfortably leave their card on the gift table.
