My step-sis and her hubby built their own dance floor. Basically it was a frame (kinda like a wall is designed) built out of 2″x 6″boards, with a plywood top. They had a ’50s theme, so they painted it black and white checkerboard. Fiance suggests that you look into deck building instructions to get some ideas on construction.

I’m so sorry that you are having to deal with so much drama – I am totally there in the drama department and wedding planning.  It isn’t fun at all and can’t wait for the actual wedding day to roll around.

I’m having my wedding on a piece of family land as well and am having a dance floor built for my weddin.  A carpenter who has done lots of work for my mother will be making it for us because we will *have* to rent a tent if we rented a dance floor and we only want a tent if it rains.  I think he is going to make it out of plywood and put a coating on it so that if it rains, water doesn’t bow or buckle.

We have yet to build the dance floor but I know that it *is* possible.  PM me if you want me to ask the carpenter for pointers!
