    I think you’d be surprised by the remaining guests and I’m sure many more will be up and dancing, but  think 27 will be enough to keep the party going.

    27 is more than enough to keep the party going – everyone’ll clump together in little groups on the dancefloor anyway, so it’ll probably feel more full!

    @icetea:  we are having a small wedding too about 55 guests IF everyone rsvp’s yes. I am worried not many people will be dancing 🙁 and that it wont be as fun as if we invited more people!

    We had 112 people (including the wedding party) and we had less than half get up to dance.

    27 people on a small dance floor would be enough to keep the party going.

    If they are big dancers, then it definitely will! It also depends on the size of the dance floor, 27 people in a small space is actually a lot of people.

    It depends on so many things – whether your guests are a dancing crowd, what size the dance floor is (make sure it’s not too big!! a smaller dance floor always looks more packed and makes others want to join in!), whether it’s a daytime or nighttime wedding (honestly, I’ve seen a lot more dancing at nighttime weddings), the playlist, whether you’re serving alcohol, and the general vibe of the wedding. Mr. W and I ate dinner during our cocktail hour, so during the actual dinner while our guests were eating, we walked around to each table to say hi. I told every single guest that nothing would make me happier than if they got their butts on the dance floor… And out of 120 guests, I saw almost every single one of them on the dance floor over the course of the evening. We worked really hard on our playlist and let guests also request songs, we kept the alcohol flowing, and I really think asking people to dance helped a lot. If you are super worried, you should include some line dances, like the Cupid Shuffle – we’ve been to 5 weddings this year, and that song was played at every single wedding, and it seemed to always get new people out on the dance floor.

    Definitely. People will just spread out and take up more of the floor.

    It’s totally enough! Is the dance floor small? That will help make it seem more crowded, and it might encourage the shy ones to slip in there, too, if they don’t think they’ll have to have 10 square feet to themselves! 🙂

    I had 65 people and about 2/3 danced on and off. Most of my guests were in their 30s though.

    At FI’s brother’s wedding recently, there were probably 75 or so people in attendance. I think the max number of people on the dance floor at one time was 15 including the kids. It didn’t matter. Those of us dancing had a good time and everyone else just socialized and chatted and ate and drank. It was a good time regardless 🙂

    I was the only person that was on th D-floor pretty much all night other people came and went almost seeming to take it in turns. besides the bridal dance i think the most we had at one time was about 10. we only had about 38 people at our wedding. i dont think that it took away from the fun i had ripping it up! Wink
