For many cultures it is traditional to have a Money Dance during the wedding reception. The idea being that guests would slip some money into a designated money purse or basket in order to happily take the Bride (or Groom) for a twirl on the dance floor. This is a great way to get people dancing and having fun, as well as securing some spending money for your honeymoon getaway. Plus, it gives your guests that special moment to congratulate you as you embark on your new journey of married life.
If you are not planning on having a money dance at your reception, or have other dance numbers in mind (maybe a choreographed dance with your bridesmaids as a last hurrah and to remind your groom how lucky he is), a newer trend with the same thread of thought is the Honeymoon Fund Jar. While it is titled a jar, it, of course, does not have to be a literal jar. Instead, pick something that coordinates with your wedding theme. If you want to focus on the journey
you are taking, or have a vintage theme wedding, a suitcase styled case could be perfect. If your theme or style alludes to fairy tales or secret gardens, then a wired bird cage or even a large lantern would look lovely. If you are going country chic or just plain playful, then a large jar with a ribbon in your color may be what you are looking for. No matter what you choose, having a Honeymoon Fund Jar at your wedding is a great idea. Just put it on your sign in table with a cute note telling your guests what it is for.
It may even be a good idea to bring the jar to your Bridal Shower. You could make a game of it by asking your guests to put advice or date ideas in along with a little green (no pressure) or pass along the jar as people share how they know you or they favorite memory with you. Either way, having a honeymoon fund jar at your bridal shower and wedding can help you make your honeymoon a little more fun and stress free.
