Dance floors for a wedding or special event are typically rented by the section. Each section is either 3x3-feet, 3x4-feet or 4x4-feet. For indoor weddings, oak plank or wood parquet (geometric wood design) is a popular choice. Vinyl dance floors are also available for indoor use, and they come in all-white, all-black or a checkerboard pattern. Durable polypropylene dance floors are suitable for outdoor events, according to Rental HQ.

Typical costs:

  • For a 12x12 dance floor rental (generally recommended for a wedding with 100 guests), a typical price range is $215 to $325 depending on flooring type. Individual sections typically rent for $5 to $30 each.
  • Wood parquet dance floor rental typically ranges from $215 to $250 for 100 guests at an indoor wedding. Each section may rent for anywhere from $5 to $16. A-1 Party Rental offers 3x3 wood parquet sections for $16, for example.
  • Oak plank dance floor rental typically ranges from $250 to $325 for 100 guests at an indoor wedding. Individual sections typically cost $28 to $30. For example, Special Events of New England[1] rents 4x4 oak plank sections for $30 each.
  • Vinyl dance floor rental typically ranges from $250 to $325 for 100 guests at an indoor wedding. Each section may cost $19 to $27. Special Events of New England[2] rents 3x4 black or white vinyl sections for $30 each.
  • Outdoor dance floor rental typically costs $300 for 100 guests. At Deejay's Event Rentals[3] , a 4x4 section of flooring costs $32.

What should be included:
  • Dance floor delivery, installation, breakdown and pick-up are typically included in the price quote. This is not always the case, so make sure to clarify this with potential vendors. Dance Deck provides typical installation times and instructions.
  • Dance floor edging should be included to create the appearance of a finished edge.
  • Weekend rental is common (vendor drops off Friday, picks up Monday), though couples should check with potential vendors to confirm weekend rates.
Additional costs:
  • A mirrored disco ball costs about $45 to rent.
  • It is common for companies to charge a refundable damage waiver of $250 or 10% of the rental fee, which is due upfront as a deposit. This protects the company from missing or broken equipment and means a renter may need to pay to replace individual tiles that become damaged at the event.
  • Liability insurance may be purchased at an additional cost, and will offer legal protection in case a guest decides to sue from an injury incurred on the dance floor. For $185, purchasers typically receive up to $1-million in liability coverage. For details, see How Much Does Wedding Insurance Cost.
Shopping for a dance floor:
  • When choosing which size of dance floor to order, consider how many couples will be dancing. Dance Deck[4] gives a helpful chart for estimating dance floor sizes and the number of guests who will likely dance.
  • When renting a dance floor for an outdoor tent, be aware that many companies will only install a dance floor under tents they set up.
  • Dance floor pole sections may be requested instead of regular sections, if the dance floor is positioned in the corner of a tent. This will ensure that the dance floor fits seamlessly around outdoor tent poles, and can help prevent injury.
  • When comparing prices, try to imagine the dance floor as a whole. Because companies rent floor pieces of various sizes, ask for a price quote for the entire floor in the size needed, rather than per section.
