How to make my venues cement less ugly?

Hey all, so we picked this rustic venue because of its location and for the fact that it’s surrounded by nature and affordable. The biggest problem we have is all the cement that’s there, we’d have liked it so much better if it were at least dyed or something, and we want to figure out a way to make it less ugly. The dance floor is basically just cement. We’ve looked into dance floors to put over it but it’s $600-$800 just to rent a dance floor and we don’t even know if that would help much. Here’s pics for reference:

    From a guest perspective, no one will pay attention to the cement. Many dance floors are cement and no one has issues with it. You can ask your photographer to photoshop it.

    I agree that when people are standing on it, it won’t look too bad. It probably looks worse than it is because it’s such a large expanse. Once it’s full you’ll probably hardly notice it!

    Once you put table clothes and chairs and flowers on the table I think the flooring
    won’t be very noticeable!

    Have you thought about putting old rugs down?

    I echo previous posters who said that once your wedding decor is set up and your guests are there, you (and they) won’t notice the floors. Our venue had cement floors, and our guests still comment on how beautiful they thought the venue was. I would focus your time, energy, and money elsewhere.


    Photos below to demonstrate just how much the floor fades away when the venue isn’t empty 😀

    I definitely don’t think the floors are a big deal. Once you have linens and the string lights and decor, no one will notice the floors.

    I don't think the guests will notice much especially if they're just having a good time and just set up the area with decor all around Smiley smile We rented a dance floor mainly because the area we wanted the dancing to happen, there were pavers so we didn't want people tripping and what not lol.

    Honestly it won't be an eyesore once the space is filled with tables and guests. I wouldn't worry about it too much!

    But if you absolutely must disguise it somehow, I think the rugs someone posted above would be a really cool idea. You just need to be careful that the edge of the rugs don't become a tripping hazard, especially for those in heels.
