Wedding Dance Planning
What usually goes hand in hand with an unforgettable wedding reception? An unforgettable wedding dance! Wedding receptions traditionally include some sort of entertainment after the meal portion of the evening….and included with the entertainment is a chance for the guests to “show their moves” during the dance. The wedding dance portion of the reception is exponentially important for abundant reasons. The bride and groom will have their very first dance as Mr. & Mrs. on the dance floor…..followed by the groom and his mother’s dance and the bride and her father’s dance. All of these examples are special once in a lifetime moments, so sounds like the dance floor is a big part of the wedding reception / room setup, right? Exactly! Therefore, when you (the bride and groom) are scoping out wedding reception venues be sure to ask the facility about the dance floor. What are the dance floor options? Does the room have a built-in / existing dance floor or is it a move-able dance floor? If at all possible, have a look at the actual dance floor (or at least a photo of it) while you are at the facility. Here at the Sioux Falls Convention Center, we offer a sturdy / and elegant parquet wooden dance floor. Our dance floor is totally move-able, and able to be configured in custom shapes. The standard size we put in our ballrooms for wedding receptions is 18×30, which is a very large dance floor (allowing for plenty of space for you and all of your guests to have a blast breaking it down). The squares are 3×3 in size and again, can be configured in multiple different ways. We recently hosted an event that did more of an abstract shaped dance floor, and another that did more of a “U-shaped” dance floor. At any rate, having the ability to place your dance floor in a desired area of the room as a part of your setup and knowing you will have a gorgeous looking dance floor for everyone to enjoy….is priceless. If you book a facility that does not offer a dance floor and you have to rent one it can be a decent expense, as they typically start around $400.00 and go up from there. All of our wedding receptions (here at the Sioux Falls Convention Center) receive one of our dance floors (18×30 in size -parquet wood) at no additional cost, as it is a part of our rental package. If you are looking for a wedding reception venue that will encourage your guests to “dance the night away” with you on your wedding night, please give me a call today!
