It wouldn’t effect me because I would never consider taking a glass, can, or liquid onto a dance floor. In fact most venues don’t allow it, for safety reasons. At both my daughters’ weddings the lead vocalist announced that it wasn’t allowed. There were also signs on the bar.

Agree with PP, this might be blessing in disguise.

No, I wouldn’t be offended. I don’t see anything wrong with this idea. At least you know that the dance area will be clean and not have to worry about anyone spilling drinks on the dancefloor causing accidents.

I take drinks on the dance floor all the time. Our guests did. I think someone broke a glass. That wasn’t good. But if someone takes a beer on the dance floor, is someone going to talk up to them and tell them to go outside? Did you know about this rule when booking the venue? That would have effected my venue choice..

This sounds like a great idea… No one spilling drinks on others while they are busitng out their best dance moves! No one likes when a wild dancer spills their drink on you!

I love cider and would be happy as a clam with only cider on the dance floor.

It really depends on your province. I think I’m BC if the cider is free and is being served by someone licensed with serving it right, you can apply for the license to include cider as well and post that license rather than use the one the company has so it would just be an extension of the bar. I’m sure there are a few ways of getting around it. Have you asked the venue what other brides do? Also, the special events license in BC is usually not regulated unless the police decide to show up and check in on the event or your venue personnel are sticklers for the rules and checking glasses between the tent/entrance so they don’t get fined.

I would regulate it by not allowing any alcohol on the dance floor! How else would it be enforced? (And honestly, it would be the venue that took the hit if for some reason you got caught.)

I actually wouldn’t have a problem with this. I never thought glasses in one’s hand on the dance floor were super cool props anyways. Seems like such small thing to accommodate.

I don’t think it’s a big deal.  I’d probably sit down at a table to chat with someone while drinking my drink anywho.  

Even the weddings I’ve been to that had open alcohol everywhere.. we mostly drank outside of the dance hall, to get some fresh air.
