#336 Money Dance

At Filipino weddings, the money dance is usually announced and the male guests line up in front of the bride, pinning money on her dress or veil, then dance with her.

The same routine when it will be the turn of the bridegroom, only the female guests line up. Money is pinned onto the newly married couple’s garments, representing the wish that good fortune is “rained” upon them, while also helping the couple financially as they begin their life together.
