Here’s how to determine how much dance floor you will need for your big day!
Things to Consider
- As a good rule of thumb, you can assume that between 30% to 40% of your party will be dancing at any given time, and the industry standard suggestion is to allot about 9 square feet per dancer.
- With that in mind, decide how much space are working with for your dance floor.
- What kind of surface will the flooring be placed on? Grass, concrete, asphalt, wood deck?
- Will you be using the flooring for your entire event, filling the dining area too? Or will you just be using it for dancing? Either way, make sure you get precise measurements. You will need them!
Who Will Be Dancing?
If your wedding guests list is made up of mostly elderly or low key people you can expect a slightly lower number of dancers. If your list is made up of a younger crowd, then you can expect just the opposite. We have found for most weddings you can go with the 40% rule and it works great! Using the 40% Rule, below is a chart to help you decide.
