Dramatic Dance Floors

We started realizing several years ago, that drab dance floors were not the way to go. We put so much into the details, from subtle to obvious, so how could something smack in the middle of the reception not deserve the same? And, with our in house printing company, Lettered Olive, customizing patterns and details for our clients there was no reason not to. Enter, dramatic dance floors. So, we though for this romantic Italian affair, a dance floor that resembled antique Italian tile would be a perfect design.

Since this tented reception for 300 people offered a large expanse, we actually decided to make the dance floor the main focal point. The custom monogram used throughout the wedding printing, was applied here front and center. And then we mimicked the color and shape with an overhead installation for dramatic results.

Of course, you can’t go wrong with a monogram… Here an embellished monogram fills the dance floor for this formal fling. Pretty and personalized!

Here, our client really wanted to blow guests mind with over the top design details. She helped Lettered Olive with the design of the dance floor. The letters around the edge include names, details, and locations important to the couple. The floral “chandeliers” overhead added a spectacular detail as guests danced all night.

This classic winter wedding featured a black, white, and gold color palette. When events are being in a hotel ballroom, we do have some constraints when it comes to designing. So, we went with a dramatic dance floor design with a bit of an art deco vibe. This was so on point for the photos.

I love how this design turned out for our bride wanting a modern glam wedding. We used a marble pattern in many other design moments- cake, printed items, etc. So, we did a full marble overlay on the dance floor and it turned out pretty fab!

This dance floor was also really lovely and special. After laying white carpet down over hotel carpet (which usually features terrible colors and patterns), a full color floral look transformed the room.

For this wedding, custom Florentine tile patterns in varying shades of blue were used for much of the printed materials. So, we took one of our favorites and did a full dance floor in the pattern. I love how this turned out so much!
