7 ways to upgrade your wedding dancefloor

Written by Katie Byrne

Keep your guests on your dancefloor all night long with these finishing touch ideas...


#1 Lay out the rules

#2 Provide dance-ready footwear

We're talking those Pin-worthy baskets of flip-flops you've already seen - they really do make a difference! If budgets are tight, gift guests the flip-flops as a wedding favour at the start of the reception.

#3 Bump up the flooring

Order a decal that can go centre-stage: it could display your initials, your names, your wedding date, your wedding hashtag - or a combination of them all! Alternatively, entire the floor as a whole: for example, you could lay down second-hand rugs to add extra colour and cheer to a bohemian celebration.

#4 Look up!

Similarly, adorn the ceiling! Whether it's with balloons, bunting, streamers or a single, statement chandelier...


#5 Prepare a truly spectacular first-dance moment

Okay, so you don't have to be dancing pros - but so long as you both take to the dancefloor with confidence and joy, to the perfect tune, who cares? Alternatively, you could both plan ahead and choreograph something truly jaw-dropping... 



#6 Make sure your playlist has potential to appeal to everyone

Yes, you and your partner might adore hardcore rock - but that's not to say everyone will. Try to offer a broad spectrum of music - from jazz to rap, party classics to chart-toppers... 


#7 Light it up!

From illuminated letters to strings of fairylights, there are plenty of ways to illuminate your dancefloor.
