One of the best and entertaining parts of a wedding is music and in extension, the dance floor! An empty or boring dancefloor is a nightmare we’re sure everyone would want to avoid. Below are some suggestions that will help your guests make their way to the dance floor and keep it rocking!
- Create the Right Mood
It’s essential to set the right mood. The mood for your party is usually set during cocktail hour. With proper lighting and music, this can enhance your guests’ vibe. When you’re ready to get the dancing part of the night started, work with your DJ to pick an upbeat song to get the wedding started!
Timing is important. You don’t want to stop the dancing because it’s time for speeches, and then expect your guests to all return to the dancefloor with the same vibe. Consider having essential wedding activities completed before dancing starts.
- Make Sure There’s Enough Space
Small dance floors will discourage your guests and limit their dancing. Therefore, ensure you pick a venue with enough dance floor space. The ideal size is to have 3 square feet of space for every two guests, which means about 200 guests will need 18 x 18 area.
- Provide Flip Flops for Female Guests
Sore or blistered feet from high heels can obviously kill the vibe for your guests. Consider providing flip flops or socks for female guests to keep them dancing.
- Hire an Awesome DJ
An excellent wedding DJ will help make a fantastic dance floor. Great DJs can read the crowd and know the songs to play to get people on the dance floor.
They also have an exciting and diverse playlist that will get people excited to be on the dance floor. Want a packed dance floor? Invest in a great DJ!
- Trust Your DJ
Don’t teach the DJ how to do their work. Let your DJ lead the music services. Song requests are great ideas, but you don’t want to try to turn your DJ into a jukebox playing from the list you provided exactly.
- Set the Lead
Don’t underestimate how contagious your energy is. Taking the lead to hit the dance floor will encourage the guests to join you. Your guests are there to be with you. If you’re on the dance floor, that’s where your guests will be!
