It might not be the first thing you consider when planning a wedding, but in our experience, the size of your dance floor is something you should think about. While some couples think “bigger is better,” that might not always be the case. The reality of the situation is, you probably don’t need an oversized dance floor and here is why:
- Not everyone is going to dance and if they do, it likely won’t be all at the same time. Even if you’ve invited 300+ guests, not all of them will be on the dance floor unless you’re only related to and friends with people who love to dance. Take a quick inventory of your guest list and if you think you’re really inviting a group of people who need a ton of space to dance, then we can work together to make sure your dance floor is adequate. Otherwise, we recommend a smaller space.
- Big dance floors can actually be scary instead of inviting. Not all your guests will enjoy being seen dancing in front of lots of other people. If you’re dance floor is too big, it’s going to feel empty and will likely deter the shy ones from getting down. A smaller space looks more full and is much easier to slyly sneak onto, without anyone really noticing. When you put this into perspective, would you book a room that fits 500 people if you’re only inviting 200 people? Keep the energy buzzing with a smaller dance space.
- Do you really need a huge dance floor? Unless you have a troupe performing a number, the type of dancing you’re doing will most likely not require a ton of space.
