Planning to turn up the music? Most will dance, others will make you laugh at a new definition of dancing. Either way the smooth surface of the dance floor will take care of the guests as they let loose. Side note we're not in Arizona so having the dance floor under the tent is best. We would suggest the 16'x16' floor for 100 guests, 16'x24' or 28' for higher counts. 16'x16' $650, 24' $750, 28' $825
As you can see in the picture above the head table is on the dance floor. This is a nice arrangement because it helps highlight the party. Once the dance starts these tables can be moved with ease off the floor compared to guests tables which take more time.
The Dance Floor Story
In the fall under a large reception tent was a 16'x24' dance floor. After the ceremony, the guests started to mingle inside the tent for the social hour. Snacks and drinks were served as the catering crew prepared the food line tables on the dance floor. Once dinner was served, the bride and groom were the first to enter the line. They had huge smiles as they placed the mashed potatoes, pork, beef, carrots, rolls, and salad on their plate. We're not sure if they actually had time to eat it all, but they were super hungry after a busy day.
Once everyone had their fill, and uncle so-and-so was finished going through the line for the 4th time, the catering crew took down the line. Friends and family giving the toasts stood in the middle of the dance floor. We swept and cleaned the floor so it was looking great. Then the DJ announced the first dance.
The father daughter dance was a huge surprise! It wasn't a slow dance as you might expect, but it was fast, crazy, and choreographed! Everyone was cheering, and by the time they were done, both father and daughter were so tired they could hardly breath. Big hugs and cheers all around. It was hard for the mother and son dance to even compete with that last act. The remainder of the night the floor was packed with guests overflowing into the grass on the edges. The dance floor was used to to the fullest!
When everything was cleaned up on Monday, and the tent, tables, and chairs were gone, the only thing left was the large square imprint in the grass of where the dance floor once lay. It's a remnant of a wonderful celebration.
