…you know, it’s not THAT bad….and I would avoid putting anything on top of it…because people could trip, it could get torn, caught…you name it….maybe dressing it up with a border of somekind?  Some lumineers would give it structure, depth and distract from the course nature of the wood, or a floral border would soften it…keep in mind, that people will be on it…so it will be obscured by your guests feet most of the time, so it’s not something that I would let distract me from an otherwise lovley venue.

People won’t really see it while it’s under their feet! 😉


Also, you could probably rent a dance floor to put over it.

You could put dancing people on it? But seriously, it’s ok – I doubt many guests would notice or care. If it really bothers you the only thing you could do is rent a dancefloor to go over the top of it.

I really don’t think it’s that bad, and not worth the effort to do anything with it.

I agree, its really not that bad – and once people are on it, you won’t be able to tell.

Stick with the lanters from the trees, that will just make the whole dance area super appealing and pretty, and make you forget about the floor.

@Lily_of_the_valley:  I really don’t think anyone will notice. It really isn’t that bad but if you wanted to dress is up you could line the border around the outside with something

To the floor itself I’m not sure there is anything you can do to change the appearance of the floor without your venue getting upset….

You could maybe add some type of arrangement to the border edges if you really wanted but to be honest I prob wouldn’t do anything

Have you thought about maybe using a different color of lighting….maybe blue?

If you wanted to you could hang lanterns over the floor with invisible string betw the palm trees…..this would draw the eye up and not so much on the floor itself!

I don’t think its that bad. But if it were me I would forego the dance floor. Dance in the sand! Hell you’re on the beach and you don’t get to do that very often. I would embrace the barefeet and kick up some sand!

The problem with sand, is people will probably kick off their shoes then, so you want to make sure there’s no broken glass or anything for people to cut themselves on.

I third the sand!! That would be much more fun & comfy than a dancefloor!

@Lily_of_the_valley:  I like that idea! Keep it in the same space though, and just remove the planks, because the trees make a beautiful border for the floor.

@Lily_of_the_valley:  why not put some flower petals all over it kind of scattered around and a border of some kind to draw the eye away from the plain boards? people wont trip on flower petals

I think the dance floor they have is fine. Hang decorations so your eye goes up, not down. And nobody will care or notice once people start dancing. I would absolutely not cover it with anything as it will likely become a tripping hazard.

I also like the idea of just dancing on the sand – just be sure to clearly demarcate the dance floor area.
