When it comes to planning a wedding reception, one of the most important decisions is whether or not to rent a dance floor. According to Heather Rouffe of Atlas Event Rental, the answer depends on the size and atmosphere of your event. If you're hosting a smaller, more intimate reception, you may not need a dance floor to have a good time. However, if you're looking to encourage guests to dance and show off the colors of your wedding, a dance floor is an easy way to add a touch of color and texture.
If the existing floor in your venue is made of a hard substance, such as marble or hardwood, you don't need to rent a dance floor. However, if you want to incorporate a certain aspect or theme into your reception space, you might not have a dance floor. If you've participated in dance-focused weddings, such as a first dance or a choreographed dance, some of your guests may feel uncomfortable taking the word with you. If you already know that you like to dance, you can try talking to your partner during your first dance at a wedding you attend.
Or organize a poll on your wedding website and ask everyone to vote for your first dance song or last song of the night. Alcohol is probably a major factor and I wouldn't expect the night to last as long as a typical wedding at a party where people drink and dance for hours. In conclusion, whether or not you should rent a dance floor for your wedding reception depends on the size and atmosphere of your event. If it's a smaller, more intimate reception, you don't need to have a dance floor to have a good time. However, if you want to encourage guests to dance with you and your friends during the reception, a dance space is a great option.
