I am planning to have a beach wedding at a vacation rental home. The house has a pretty substantial backyard. We want to have the reception outside. There will be about 100 people there, and it will be a more casual reception. We will have plenty of drinks and serve food (prepared ourselves), but it will not be a traditional sit down dinner. We are hiring a professional DJ. Since there is nice grass in the backyard, do you think that we have to rent a dance floor? I don’t care either way, but I don’t want people to be deterred because there is no dance floor. We are looking for ways to trim the budget down, so do you think I really should rent one? Here is a picture of the backyard.

It’s not easy to dance on grass nor do I think the homeowner would be too pleased. Can you have the dance floor on the brick or is that where the DJ will be?

If you can afford it, absolutely!!!

I would say yes…if dancing is something you want at your reception AND you have the budget for it, I say yes. It will encourage people to dance and in case it rains the day before it will be easier for people.

Yes, rent a dance floor. Not only is it easier to dance on a floor but it will create a neat space designated for dancers. Otherwise people might bob their head to the music but not dance because they feel like they would be dancing among guests randomly.

I would definitely add a dance floor. I imagine it would be difficult to dance on grass.
