Any recommendations on a cheap alternative to a dance floor!? Most places I have looked to rent one runs around $200-$400! Do you know where I could rent one for cheaper (I’m located in Michigan) or do you have any other ideas! Thanks I’m advanced!
I agree that you don't necessarily have to have a dance floor. Wherever you set up the dj is generally where people dance. You could make it more prominent by focusing the dj lighting on it, or having a washi tape outline, or even just dancing there yourself for your first dance and people will get the hint. In my opinion the only time you NEED a dance floor is if you have cobblestone or grass.
I think a cement floor will be fine. I went to a backyard wedding last year where they rented a dance floor and the whole thing actually started sliding around during dances like the cha cha slide where everyone moved in the same direction If you already have a hard floor I think it would be fine.
