Dollar Dance Songs

The dollar dance (also known as the money dance) is an interactive part of the wedding reception when guests pay to dance with the bride and groom, giving them money to start their new life together. Some couples prefer to have their friends and family pin bills to the bride's gown or simply slip them a buck or two, but having a traditional dollar dance is a way to make it a bit more fun.

There are two ways to approach picking the perfect song for your dollar dance. If you want to go with something cheeky, try “Material Girl” by Madonna or “Gold Digger” by Kanye West. If you want to keep things sentimental, opt for songs by James Taylor, The Beatles, or Billy Joel.

Ahead, we've rounded up the 65 best dollar dance songs to play at your wedding.
