    Yes, spend the cash, it'll make for better ambiance.

    No, people will understand why there's not one

    What is the floor like? Hardwood, tile, or carpet?

    If it is carpet I would say invest in the dancefloor, if it is a hard floor I would say leave it as is!

    depends on the space, like FMM said above.. if it’s already hard, don’t worry about it! maybe get a big ol’ dance floor decal? or do something to make the space special, like lighting. You can come in way under 500 with those things and it’d look just as cool.

    How important is dancing to the success of your wedding? If you’re envisioning a packed dance party, then I say go for it. It is harder to dance on carpet, so fewer people might do it. I think some of the venues I looked at with carpet actually required you to have a dance floor.

    If it’s just for your first dance, then you probably don’t need one.

    I think it depends on your budget.  If you’re total budget is $1k-$2k, then I think it’s too much too spend.  If your total budget is higher, then it’s not unreasonable, but still unnecessary.  We danced on carpet for our first dance, and NO ONE was looking at the floor.  It wasn’t hard to dance on, and we don’t regret foregoing the dance floor AT ALL.  It really is just one of those things you convince yourself you “need” but in the end, all you “need” is space to dance!

    I would get the floor if you plan on dancing all night. For one dance, not worth it but if your guests will be dancing for a few hours you might want to consider it – you don’t want all that static electricity either, people dancing around shocking each other, LOL!

    If the floor is a hard surface, why pay for another floor? sounds like a waste of money! i never even thoughtof renting one. i thought those rentals were for outdoor weddings mainly.

    We have to pay $300 to rent our dance floor. I would suggest you get it because the floor is carpeted. Hopefully they give you a deal.

    If you really want one and can afford it, then go for it.  If it would be a budget buster, I would advise against.

    I think visually, it would look nicer with a dance floor, plus it’ll help to guide people along.  But, if there’s music and people want to dance, they’ll dance.  A carpet on the floor certainly wouldn’t stop me!

    First, I want to commend you for having everything done for your May wedding. My ‘To Do’ list is SO long and I’m so stressed! However about the dance floor, I think $500-$600 is too much for a dance floor! Depending on the floor, you should be able to get away with not having a dance floor. As long as you have an open space for dancing, I’m sure your guests won’t know the difference!
