Let's make sure your guests are dancing

You’ve had your ceremony, your wedding breakfast & speeches and your cake has been cut.  Now it’s time to hit the dance floor for party time.

But the big question is how do you ensure your guests are on the dancefloor throwing some shapes rather than sitting around chatting and drinking.

At Disco Nyts we understand one of the big fears that couples may have leading up to their wedding reception (or any other party for that matter) is the fear that nobody will dance. 

We’ve compiled all my indispensable tips and tricks that are proven year after year to pack your wedding dance floor and keep it that way. 

Dim the lights

This is extremely important, because you want your guests to feel comfortable and relaxed on the dancefloor. Having bright lights will make them too self aware so bring the lighting right down. Ideally roving or flashing lighting will create an illusion of a busy dancefloor, which will encourage more guests to join in.


The biggest mistake many brides and grooms make is for their evening reception is to start the entertainment too early. Your day guests will have just eaten dinner and your evening guests won’t be relaxed (or drunk) enough yet. Don’t be afraid to let everyone ease into the evening rather than rushing through and trying to force a good time – 9pm is usually the ideal time to start your band or disco.

Check Your Space

You need a dedicated dancefloor space but it can’t be too big or too small for the number of guests you have. A huge dancefloor will intimidate your guests while a tiny dancefloor will give the impression you are not expecting anyone to dance. Another point to remember here is that having the bar in a separate room will take your guests away from the dancefloor, leaving it looking a bit empty and sad.

Be present

As the bride and groom you are the stars of the show and your guests will generally want to be where you are – on the dancefloor having the time of your lives! You can also prepare or recruit some close friends who you know are more confident to be the first ones up and dancing, to help get the party started!
