I’m waking up right now to the sounds of birds chirping and children laughing and the creek burbling. I’m stumbling out of the tent and eating pancakes. My biggest stressor of the day is whether I want to swim in the pool or the river. Ok, sorry, not trying to rub it in. I’ll save that for the sunscreen. Oh, I crack myself up.
Moving on. Today, I have the lovely Becky from Bow Ties & Bliss guest posting! She is sharing some fantastic images and tips for… oh, well I’ll let her tell you. 😉 Thanks so much Becky!
Hello! My name is Becky, and I’m a fellow wedding blogger over at Bow Ties & Bliss. I am honored to be guest posting today on Colleen’s wonderfully inspiring blog. It’s so great to have a wedding blog dedicated to the musical aspect of weddings–I just wish Soundtrack to I Do was around when I got married!
Today I want to share with you guys some tips for decorating your dance floor. The dance floor is where all the magic happens… it’s where some of the most fun, exciting, and craziest moments of the night go down, so it deserves to be decorated as such, don’t you think? There are so many fun and unique ideas for decorating your dance floor area, and it doesn’t have to cost a fortune, either. Here are some of my favorites and how you can achieve the same effect at your own wedding reception. Enjoy!
1. I absolutely adore this image–the bride looks so joyful! The simple strands of lights hanging above the dance floor are an inexpensive way to bring a little twinkle to your dance party.
2. Hanging lanterns are another wonderful way to shine the light on your dance floor. Mismatch different sizes and colors for a fun and whimsical feel. You can find every color, shape, and size of paper lantern at Luna Bazaar! Also, I’m not going to lie…I’m kind of obsessed with that yellow and white checkered dance floor. So fun and unique!
4. I am a huge fan of tissue poms. They are inexpensive, easy to make, and they are just so stinking cute. The combination of the sporadic colorful tissue poms with the string lights makes for a lovely combination. Martha Stewart has an excellent DIY tissue pom tutorial, for you creative types.
7. This is such a stunning idea–the couple hung petals above the dance floor to look as if they’re “floating.” Check out Miller + Miller Photography to see more stunning images from the wedding!
8. Last but certainly not least is one of my most favorite ways to decorate the dance floor… hanging parasols! They provide such a whimsical and eclectic touch, and can be rented from companies such as Bella Umbrella. Images spotted here, originally from 100 Layer Cake.
