Have any of you ladies had a Chinese banquet with a dance floor? We are going to have a lot of guests who are not Chinese and are expecting to dance. (I personally love to dance too!)I was concerned because the dance floor will be small and I was concerned that it might be a problem.

I don’t know about Chinese but the Vietnamese it just depends on the venue. Some places do have a good size dance floor others not so much. I think you just need to talk to your venue.

I am actually looking to do a Chinese banquet dinner and have the after party at a club where the guests can dance.

What you can also do, if there is adequate space, is hire a vendor to install a portable dance floor in for you. The hall where my sister had her reception at had a brown dance floor which clashed with her color scheme so she hired a vendor to install a white dance floor over it which was removed right after the wedding. I think it set her back about $500 or so.

@Mrslongdistance: I’m having my chinese wedding banquet with a dance floor. It’s at a Chinese restaurant in NYC that is familiar with weddings. The first question that they asked me was if I wanted dancing – with a dancefloor, I can have 180 guests. Without a dancefloor, I can have 200-220 guests. I think that, like another bee said, a dance floor can be rented. I went to peek at the space when it was set up for a wedding and it looks like they put a portable dancefloor on top of the regular, carpeted floor. I just went to another wedding in NYC that was a Chinese wedding banquet with a dancefloor. There wasn’t a lot of dancing at it but there was a dance floor!!
I’m not sure how to coordinate dancing and the different courses – unlike a typical American wedding, there are too many courses to have people sit down for each one. If you have any thoughts or advice, please PM me!!
