Four Steps To A Full Dance Floor

Every couple wants their guests to have an amazing time at their wedding and getting your guests dancing is a sure way to succeed! Here are our four steps to get your guests on their feet.

Timing Is Key

Having the band or DJ start at the right time is a must. Too early and your guests might still be too full from your delicious meal to even think about getting out their seat, and your evening guests haven't had a chance to "warm up". Too late and your guests may be flagging, so have your band or DJ start around 8pm/9pm.

Set The Mood Lighting

Disco lighting is super important! Bringing the lights down is a must, no one wants to dance in a bright room. Talk to your venue and entertainment ahead of the event to discuss your options. LED colour lighting works really well as well as mist machines.

The first dance

The first dance is the perfect time to get all your wedding guests on the dance floor. Naturally, after your first dance goes on for a couple of minutes, other guests will start to join in, so make sure the following song is an upbeat hit that no one can resist dancing to. It's also important to time your first dance just before the DJ or band starts so around 8pm.

Create A Killer Playlist

Upbeat music is a no-brainer at getting people dancing at a wedding! The easiest option for having great dance music is to hire a professional DJ or wedding band, after all, they make their living playing music. By reading the crowd, they can tweak the playlist or set to ensure your guests are up and dancing all night!
