I have no clue. Thank you for any input.
I got a layout of tables/dancefloor/stage for the room which is a big open space. I don’t know how big the actual room is – will have that info soon, is a dance floor thats 400 sq. ft. a good size or what? I’m so confused.
It is U shaped and a curved stage is shown in front.

Hmm I’d wait until you get the complete floor plan cause its all relative. I could tell you that 400 sq feet is probably the size of our living room/dining room area but that wouldn’t be much help would it?

How many guests are at your wedding? How many do you think will be dancing at the same time? A couple of sites I saw said to "budget" for enough space for one-third of your guests to be dancing at any one time. Most of the sites said that a 20×20 floor (400 sq feet) would be enough for about 100 guests to dance at once. If your 400 sq feet includes the area for the curved stage (is this where your band/dj is setting up, so will not be free for dancing?), then the usable dance space would be a bit smaller than 20 feet by 20 feet.
I definitely prefer a packed dance floor over one that has too much empty space, though. I think it encourages dancing and looks much more fun.

well my apt is about 500 sq feet so 400 seems big to me! haha. but i think that that is a pretty standard size for weddings, of course depending on # of guests.
