Updated: Sep 27, 2023

Planning a wedding can be a rollercoaster of emotions, with so many decisions to make, contracts to review, and people to please. So it’s easy to see why couples get anxious and stressed about planning their big day. But some things are fun to create, and the most exciting (other than the menu tastings) is planning how to get everyone on the dancefloor. So to ease you into your dancing shoes and to help plan an epic fete, we’ve put together some incredible ideas to elevate your dance floor.

We believe every love story is unique, a personal journey to “I Do” that is one-of-a-kind and should be celebrated that way. So, rather than having a dancefloor that is a standard issue from the venue, let’s mix it up with some fun dancefloor ideas. If these floors don’t get your guests out there boogying, we don’t know what will.

Dance Floor Ideas that Wow

There are tons of ideas to make your wedding dancefloor upbeat and memorable, and today, we'll explore the six best ideas to elevate your wedding dance floor. From mesmerizing patterns to interactive designs that will have your guests dancing the night away.

Patterned Dance Floors

Why settle for a simple wooden or tiled dance floor when you can transform it into a work of art? You can do that in a blink of an eye by incorporating intricate patterns, such as chevron, herringbone, black and white checkerboard, or Moroccan-inspired designs. This will surely add a touch of elegance and style and make your guests gasp in awe.

These eye-catching patterns enhance the aesthetic appeal of your wedding dancefloor and create a dynamic atmosphere so that your guests can dance the night away. Whether you prefer a classic, timeless design or a more contemporary and bold pattern, a patterned dance floor will leave a lasting impression.

LED Dance Floors

A wedding is a luminous time in your life, and your dance floor can be too. You can illuminate your reception with the enchanting glow of LED dance floors. These interactive floors feature built-in LED lights that can change colors, creating a captivating ambience that evolves throughout the night.

From soft pastels to vibrant hues, the lighting effects can be customized to match your wedding theme or coordinate with the music, adding an extra layer of excitement to the dance floor.

The pulsating lights can sync with the rhythm of the music, creating a visually stunning experience for your guests. In addition, an LED dance floor not only levels up the overall atmosphere but also encourages guests to hit the dance floor and create magical memories.

Mirrored Dance Floors

Another great idea is to create a magical and glamorous atmosphere by opting for a mirrored dance floor. This reflective surface adds a sense of grandeur and gives the illusion of a larger space.

As your guests' twirl and sway, the mirrored floor will enhance the beauty of your venue, making every dance move memorable. The reflections of sparkling lights, intricate decorations, and the joyous expressions of your loved ones will create a stunning visual spectacle.

A mirrored dance floor is the perfect choice for couples seeking a sophisticated and elegant setting that adds a touch of glamour to their wedding reception.

Vinyl Decal Dance Floors

Put your stamp on the dance floor by incorporating vinyl decals. These timeless details will make a bold statement as you share your first dance as a married couple. We can totally see you dancing to your favourite song with a unique decoration on the floor. From monograms and intricate designs to quotes and song lyrics, the options are endless.

Vinyl decals can be easily applied and removed, allowing you to customize your dance floor to match your wedding theme or tell your unique love story. Whether you choose a romantic quote with a special meaning for you as a couple or a beautifully designed monogram showcasing your initials, vinyl decals add a personal and artistic touch to the dance floor.

It's a beautiful way to infuse your personalities into the space and create a truly one-of-a-kind experience for you and your guests.

Interactive Projection Mapping

On this fairytale-like day, you can take your guests to a world of enchantment and magic with interactive projection mapping on your dance floor. Yes, you heard right. It’s a thing, and it’s super cool!

This cutting-edge technology uses projectors to display moving images, patterns, and animations that respond to the dancers' movements. So whether it's a swirling galaxy, blooming flowers, or a romantic starry night, interactive projection mapping adds an element of surprise and wonder to your reception.

Your dance floor becomes a canvas where dreams come to life, captivating guests and immersing them in a mesmerizing visual display. This innovative approach creates an immersive experience that will leave your guests in awe and create an unforgettable atmosphere.

Suspended From Above

Your wedding dance floor is no ordinary place for guests to dance. It’s a magical stage where experiences and memories are born. So, when you start dreaming about how to get everyone on your wedding dancefloor, remember this; it’s not just about the floor you’re standing on. Suspending decor from above the floor can create a beautiful, romantic and unexpected setting.

Here are some ideas for wedding dancefloor decor.


Nothing says romance more than drapery hanging above your wedding dancefloor. And if you can combine it with a stunning chandelier, you’re dancefloor will be luxurious and fun.

Disco Balls

If you’ve got disco fever, bust it out on your wedding day by suspending disco balls above the dancefloor. Your guests will immediately understand the task at hand - time to boogie!

Floral Installations

If you’re going for a whimsical or ethereal feel, have your florist design large floral installations that can be suspended above the dancefloor. It’s a stunning visual aesthetic that will absolutely WOW your guests.


Birthdays aren’t the only event to roll out festive balloons. Elevating your wedding dancefloor is easy when you suspend a balloon installation above it because…nothing says party like oversized balloons.

Use balloons in metallics and colors that match the wedding theme, and if you really want to create a wedding guest experience they’ll never forget - add little prizes inside the balloons and have an epic balloon drop right before your grand exit. They’ll talk about that for years!
