    I wouldn’t dance. It’s going to be dirty, muddy, grassy and not level.

    I wouldn’t dance with out a dance floor. Especially in heels. I changed my venue because it was outdoors and the decided they were no longer going to allow dance floors. I think they are worth the money and very important if everyone dancing is a big deal to you. It’s a huge deal to us. Our DJ is very experienced and said while he could easily get everyone out there dancing, I should know that with no dance floor people won’t dance as long. It’s just how it goes. He’s DJ’ed thousands of weddings and I trust and believe him. If dancing is important to you, get one. Also what would people be dancing on if not a dance floor? Grass, concrete, dirt? It makes a difference.

    I probably wouldn’t dance either. If there’s no firm floor space (meaning an outdoor patio, rented dance space, etc) I would be nervous that I might hurt myself (I twist my ankles all the time). Also, people might not realize there would be dancing without a floor.

    desperatbridetobee :  I’ve been to a wedding on grass with no dance floor and it was SUPER fun, but it was also the type of crowd who was perfectly happy to be dancing in knee-deep mud at 2am. If that’s not your crowd I’d get the dance floor. 

    ETA: it started as grass, but after 8 hours of people dancing and drinking (and spilling drinks) it was pretty much a mud pit. My husband had to pour my drunk-butt into the tub to wash my feet before I could get into bed hahahaha

    desperatbridetobee :  i wouldn’t dance. if you have people try, it will destory the grass and turn into mud. dancing in heels (or even flats) on grass with alcohol involved is no beuno. honestly, i’m suprised your venue will allow you to have dancing without a dancefloor – doing so *DESTROYS* the lawn. if you want a dance part reception, renting a dance floor is non-negotiable. find something else to cut back on, or find a different venue. just like you need to have a chair for every butt, you need to have a dance floor if you want dancing.

    desperatbridetobee :  I’m confused. Your original post is asking how people feel about dancing in the mud, thats what will eventually happen, bc you’re having doubts about no dance floor. But your latest comment makes it seem like you’re definitely going forward with dancing on the grass/mud and in that case opinions aren’t needed here.

    If you are not going to rent a dance floor, you should atleast pay for alternate footwear for the female guests such as flats/flipflops.

    I purchased 72 pairs of flip flops for $100.00 so people who are on my dancefloor can kick off thier heels as the nigth wears on. You should consider doing the same.

    You have to put your guests comfort first bee, sorry.

    I’d be more worried about people’s safety than $600. Uneven ground + Made-Up Drama + drinking + heels = very very bad. If someone slips/falls and hurts themselves, you’ll be liable. Probably for a LOT more than $600.

    And no, I would not be dancing in my nice dress and shoes in the mud.
