My son is getting married October 1 in midcoast Maine. He and his fiance are US Champions in Ballroom Dancing. Many professional dancers will be coming from around the country and they need a large, sturdy, dance floor that will be stable enough for the lawn. Please give us some inexpensive, creative ideas for this project. Thanks!

I would try a party rental place.

Since this is one time and you want something real good I would at least ck the cost of renting a portable system first.

Dance floors are usually interlocking 2 x 2 foot sections, but require a flat stable surface to prevent flexing. They can also be damaged by moisture. So given a risk for rain, and placement on a lawn, I don't think conventional solutions are going to work. You would almost have to build a plywood deck to place a rental dance floor, and cover it in the event of rain.

My recommendation is to rent an appropriate venue for this once in a lifetime gathering. A country club, reception hall or similar would better handle a crowd, band, and weather. You are taking many weather risks with such and event in October in Maine, and there is honestly no way to economically construct a proper dance floor on your lawn.
