Why not build your own outdoor dancefloor?


Many people hesitate to have a dance floor for their outdoor wedding party due to the high cost of renting or the complexity of assembling it.

Fear no more: this project is within reach of anyone. I’m providing you with the detailed plans, material list, and steps further in this article.

I guarantee the dance floor addition to your outdoor wedding will get the party going for the rest of the evening in a joyful atmosphere!



Backyard Wedding Ideas

If you’re having an outdoor ceremony you may already have thought of buying or making a wooden arch.

Perhaps you are not familiar with the techniques required to build one with rustic logs. In fact, there are many videos available online if you want to build one similar to the picture below.

If time is an issue, another option you have is to buy or rent a plain arch structure and decorate it with cascading flowers as featured in the picture below. You can also use branches to provide the rustic feel found in the log arch.

The white macrame curtain is a beautiful addition to a bohemian style arch. It can be used with both the plain arch structure and the wooden one.

Beach and Lakeshore Ideas

There are many ways to decorate a beach or nautical wedding theme in an outdoor wedding environment. However, cheap outdoor wedding ideas also have to be practical.

For that reason, I would avoid using tall decor elements on a small basis like Eiffel style flower vases if your tables are not protected from the wind.

In fact, a sea breeze can turn into wind gusts and break any fragile items on the tables. On the other hand, a mountain lake shore is usually less affected by winds as it is sheltered by the mountains.

Still, it’s a good thing to keep in mind that outdoor temperature can change quickly. Using wooden table numbers and low height chandeliers or lanterns are a good option to avoid broken glass mess on the tables and ground.

Wedding Tents

Although the charm of an outdoor wedding compared to boxed up within blank walls wedding is beyond question, there is still an important variable to keep in mind: weather!

Anticipating is always better than adapting especially for an outdoor wedding celebration context. It’s always safer to have a backup plan in case it rains or if the temperature is not as mild as we hoped.

There are many wedding canopy and tents available at a fraction of the price on large online retailers.
