One of the big items you’ll be working on as you plan your wedding is your wedding floorplan. Now the important thing to keep in mind is that it needs to have both functionality and flow.
From the functionality side, you want to set things up in places where it makes sense. You don’t want to cause any bottlenecks or block doorways. You also don’t want people to feel squished or really far away.
In addition, you want your wedding floorplan to have a natural flow and energy. You want the placement of food and drinks, and of the music and the dance floor to naturally flow from one activity to another. You want your wedding floorplan to naturally guide guests on where to go and what to do. And lastly, you want to make sure it all works together to create the experience you want.
Now if you want your wedding to be a party, where people are active, up and dancing, then you’ll want to pay attention to this wedding floorplan tip from our DJ friend, Troy from Troy Michael DJ:
“Place the dance floor, DJ and bar all near each other. It makes for a more cohesive party with better energy.”
Troy’s tip puts a cherry on top of what we were just talking about. If having fun, dancing, and the party aspect is important to you, then you want to build your room to be conducive to that. When you’re working on your wedding floorplan, keep the party energy together instead of spreading it apart. It will keep your wedding guests active and having a good time.
