Beach Reception - Dancefloor?

Recommended Posts

So I'm planning to have my reception on the beach...

 

FI & I keep debating whether to rent a dancefloor to make dancing a bit easier. Granted, I've advised everyone to wear flip-flops or go barefoot...and even though it may be hysterical to see guests drunk with sand all over them by the end of the night lol, once us latinos start doing our super speedy dances, things may get tricky.

So, to rent a dancefloor or not. That is the question.

Be advised that renting one in Cabo runs from $600.00-$2,000.00 depending on size; ouch. I was hoping to spend $500.00 if I did rent one, but my coordinator is telling me $800.00 for the size I need, which is doable, but still more than I wanted to spend.

We too are doing a beach reception. IMO a dance floor is a necessity otherwise dancing may be quite a challenge with and without the added alcohol.

I agree .. dancing on the beach can be kinda tough! And this a wedding, so fun and dancing should be easy!!!

 

As oppsoed to renting a dance floor, see if your cooridnator can have a section of the beach dug up to the firmer sand and then patted down to make an almost falt surface. Who knows if your hotel will agree to this, but I read in a bridal magazine once this is what an LA event planner to the stars did at some celebratiy beach wedding. So maybe worth a shot.

When I was going to have the reception on the beach - I was debating this question. I think dancing on the dance floor would be much better then on the sand (especially for the older generation who will be attending). However, I wonder if the dance floor would get slippery once sand started to get all over it when people track it on with their feet?

 

If you decide to get one - you may want to be careful about that.

This is my concern as well...
Either slippery or super brittle on barefoot feet...
Maybe i'll hire someone to wipe down the dancefloor between songs like an empire does a base lol

Totally depends on what kind of dancing you're planning for, but we had people dancing right on the beach... our reception was on an outdoor patio, and we all started dancing there. But, by the end of the night, our entire crew was out on the beach dancing in front of the band! We all had a blast :) The beach where we were was a little more solid than a fine sand though, so that probably played a part in it.

Can you wait to get down there to make the decision? Just coming prepared with the $$.

 

Have you seen your reception area already? Is it the one pictured? I would wait to see how the sand is around your reception area. If it is hard and well traveled on, you may be able to pull off dancing in the sand and saving yourself $800.

 

I agree that slipping would be a fear.

Humpf. I want to say save money, but it's dang hard enough to walk on sand let alone dance! If dancing is important to you, it might be a good idea to splurge there.

    • Congrats on finding the perfect person for you! Love is a journey of patience and time Where are you guys planning on getting married?
    • This coming November, I will be marrying the woman I don't truly deserve but I was so blessed that God gave me her. Half of my life, I have been a douchebag. I have played with different women’s hearts. I thought I would never be able to meet someone who will love me wholeheartedly, until this woman came. I don’t deserve to be cared and loved by such an angel. No matter how bastard I was, she still accepted me for who I am. Loving me sincerely is what she has done since the first day. Because of that, I know deep within that she deserves someone better, but she chose to stay and love me. And I was beyond grateful for that. 
    • Have you decided? We just booked a wedding and stay at Azul Sensatori Negril for December 2019!
    • Nicole, did you decide which resort yet?  We are guessing anywhere from 25-40 people.  Shamil! Welcome and congrats!  We booked the twilight ceremony as well. How many people will you have?
