The Multiple Purposes of a Dance Floor

Mackenzie + Brody

Wedding Reception at The Ashton Depot | Downtown Fort Worth

We LOVE a great party with lots of dancing! And where does that dancing occur? The dance floor of course! It’s true that some venues do not always need a physical dance floor due to the nature of their hardwood, marble or tile floors but that does not mean that a dance floor isn’t beneficial. The main purpose of a dance floor is to give people a place to dance, duh, we all know this. BUT it’s more important than you might think. In cases where the venue has hardwood or tile and the separate dance floor is not needed, it can get confusing for guests. We’ve seen it a million times when, even though the tables are arranged in a way that creates a space for dancing, guests often don’t know for sure if that’s the dance floor. They tend to spread out throughout the room instead of getting down with the rest of the crowd in the designated dancing space. This can make your party look less full in photos. When you put down a physical dance floor, guests have no doubt where they should let loose. It can be a great way to cover floors that may be less than picturesque.

A dance floor is also usually the center point of your reception space. It’s becomes and extension of your band stage. The tables and decor are arranged around it. It can even become a piece of decor itself when you have your special monogram displayed on it using a vinyl sticker or gobo light. Or maybe a gold mirrored dance floor that helps reflect all of the amazing lighting in your space. Perhaps the black and white checkerboard is more your style? They even have dance floors with lights INSIDE them for an extra fun club vibe!

Mackenzie and Brody chose to add their wedding monogram to a beautiful white dance floor by Center Stage Floors and it made the rest of the room pop! So even if you don’t technically need a dance floor, you NEED a dance floor! Give your guests a designated space for dancing while showing off your style and personality at the same time!
