FLOORING: MODERN
AND CUSTOM
When tents are installed over grass, why
would couples want a floor? A dance floor
is considered a must for most wedding
planners to avoid twisted ankles, plus
some venues require flooring so the grass
isn't trampled. While traditional wood
flooring continues to be a popular choice,
more wedding clients are choosing
modern-looking wood styles with wider
planks, such as a gray wash, birch-white
wash and rustic "driftwood" styles.
"People are definitely wanting to bring
an interior decor element into outdoor
weddings," says Mociler, "so we typically
see a lot of classic plank flooring."
More wedding clients are also opting
to customize their dance floors using
vinyl decals with the couple's monogram.
"Weddings are becoming more of a
branded event, and people are starting
to seek branded vinyl dance floors," says
Whitney Kevech, creative director for
All Occasions Party Rental and Marbella
Event Furniture and Decor Rental,
Eighty Four, Pa.

Sheet-vinyl floors featuring unique
patterns such as marble, classic
checkerboard and bold vinyl stripes
in the wedding's signature colors
is another trend. "I recently saw
a wedding where they did a vinyl
sticker that looked like mercury
glass, and that looked incredible,"
says Kevech. "But a white, high-gloss
dance floor is not going anywhere."
The experts agree that flooring
shouldn't be overlooked. "It's
important to allocate design funds
to the dance floor," says Butler. "It's
the central heartbeat of the party."

TABLES AND SEATING: MIX IT UP
One of the biggest trends in the layout
of a tented wedding reception is varying
table shapes and sizes. "When filling
a tent, we almost always suggest a
mix-matched floor plan that seats
guests at a variety of tables styles,"
says Butler. "Mixing round tables
with rectangular King's tables [large
rectangular or square tables placed in
the middle of the space for the wedding
