After the vows and the first kiss, do the bride and groom really get time to meet and thank each of their guests? And if they do, doesn't that get too tiring? Well...
Hail the Dollar Dance!
It is a tradition that started in the beginning of the twentieth century, with the guests having to pay a dollar each, to dance with the bride or groom. This helped collect money for the future of the couple. It is believed that the money may have also been used for the couple's first born.

Whatever the reason be, the dollar dance has since then gotten really popular and has turned into a fun and lively interactive session between the guests and the newly weds. But the big question now is, what songs to play at your dollar dance? What kind of music will the guests tap their feet to? You can always use the theme of your wedding to decide the genre of music to be played and select songs accordingly.

Whether it is an 80's themed wedding or a party wedding, pop songs will make your guests do the groove thing with style! These songs can liven up your guests and get them into the mood to dance!
