Sensational: These Awesome Money Bouquet Is Second To Typical Bouquet

Have you ever attended a wedding where guests are encouraged to dance with the bride and groom? If so, you've seen the Money Dance/Spraying Money. This fascinating tradition can be traced back centuries and is still practiced today at weddings in certain cultures.


The Money Dance/Spraying Money may seem odd for the average couple's nuptials. However, the ritual has deep spiritual roots dating back to Africa, Europe, and beyond. Whether you're getting married or attending a wedding, have you considered switching up tradition and having money bouquets instead of a money dance?


Here's everything you need to know about this unique twist on a fun tradition that can help you start your married life strong:


A Little History on Money Dance
The money dance is an ancient tradition dating back to the 15th century. It originated in Europe and was called "the coin dance." It has been performed by brides and grooms at weddings for centuries to show their gratitude for attending the ceremony.

For the Yoruba people in Nigeria's Southwest, it's customary for the bride and groom to have guests shower them with money during their first dance. This tradition dates back centuries when people believed that having lots of money in your wallet would bring you good fortune and protect you from evil spirits and bad weather conditions!

Although this tradition has its roots in several different cultures, there are many variations on how it can play out depending on where you're getting married! If you're looking for a fun way to start your married life strong, consider including a modern-day twist on the money dance by having a money bouquet at your wedding! A money flower bouquet is a unique tradition with its roots in Asian culture; it is considered a form of dowry and presented to the couple during wedding ceremonies.

When you think about it, this tradition makes sense: Money bouquets are a way for you and your partner (and your guests) to show how much love and appreciation there is in your relationship. The money in your bouquet represents prosperity and good fortune, given by the bride's parents to their daughter as a blessing for her future. The bouquet is also symbolic--it represents fertility, new life, and starting a new chapter in your lives together as husband and wife. Money bouquets can be as intricate or simple as you want, using various denominations of currency from your country or a country with more colorful currency notes to compliment your flowers.

Paper currency can be folded in various ways to imitate the blooms surrounding them in the bouquet, mimicking a natural style and aesthetic that will delight any bride - not only because it is full of money, but because it's beautiful and heartfelt. 


These Bouquets are Definitely a Show Stopper
