What size dancefloor do I need for my wedding/ event?

Every event needs a dance floor, so it is important to know what size to order. When determining the dance floor size for your event, keep in mind that typically less than 50% of your attending party will occupy the dance floor at any one point.

Who Will Be Dancing?

There are a few things to consider when choosing a dance floor size. It is important to know who will be dancing, if your wedding guests are mostly elderly, then it is likely that not many will be up and dancing. Whereas if you have more younger guests, then you can expect just the opposite.

One thing we always advise our clients is that every wedding or event is different from the next. You will know your guests better than us; you may be expecting everyone to be up and dancing throughout the night or maybe you are expecting a more balance of 50%/50% split.

We have found for most weddings you can go with the 40% rule, which works great. You should budget 4.5 square feet of space for each person, 9 square feet for each couple.
