You’re halfway there to the wedding of your dreams once you’ve booked a venue that you and your betrothed just love. Whether this is a converted barn or a hotel, you don’t want to have to go back to the drawing board just because it seems like floor space might be limited. After all, other factors – such as the cost and proximity – might just trump your need to have a large dance floor on your big day.
This doesn’t mean that you can’t get a little bit creative though. Don’t forget, nighttime entertainment can be one of your biggest expenditures when getting hitched. In fact, Fix The Music has found that the average four-piece band will cost in the region of £1000 to £1200. With this in mind, here are some useful tips so you can maximise the floor space at your wedding.
Nothing takes up space quite like tables. Luckily these are becoming more and more unnecessary now thanks to the abundance of people ditching sit-down meals. You can follow the lead by serving up more relaxed food with a catering option like burger van hire. This will mean that there’s less need for guests to be taking to a seat when they eat.
An indoor buffet takes up space, as do servers walking through your reception to plate up meals. Meanwhile, it’s always a space-saving option to keep the food outside while it’s being served. For example, fish and chip van hire will simply park outside the venue, therefore not taking up valuable floor space inside.
Brides and grooms don’t always like to sit people in the corners. This, of course, isn’t a reason to leave them empty. Instead, you can station the entertainment there. This is a handy DIY trick that will make room for your guests while always locking down a space for the musicians to work their magic.
Keep It Intimate
Depending on the size of your guest list, you may envision that you need a huge, sprawling dance floor. This isn’t always necessary though. For starters, not everyone will be up dancing all at the same time. In addition, there’s a lot to be said for keeping it intimate. Therefore, don’t go overboard with clearing space to make room.
Time To Say ‘I Do’
There’s no need to have second thoughts about your wedding venue because the floor space looks slightly limited. Instead, use these four top tips to maximise the room that you’ve got. In the meantime, be sure to check out the tasty food trucks available for your big day at KK Catering.
