Monogram Dance Floor

For my wedding I wanted my monogram on the dance floor, but I knew that I could not afford to have lighting to do it. I did some investigating and this is what I did to still get the look I wanted.

What you need:
  • Design on jump drive or cd. Design must be in a jpeg or gif format.
  • 2-3 days of wait time.
I took my design to Kinkos (tried to go to Staples and Office Max, but they did not do what I needed in the time that I needed it) and spoke to one of business advisers. The business advisor took my jumpdrive, uploaded and formatted it for my project. Have you ever noticed advertisements on the floor at your locate store? This is what I had made. This floor mat had a reusable adhesive on the back that can be laid on any floor and pulled up without ruining it. Once you are done with it you can put the backing cover on it and store it for later use. It was very durable and people were able to dance on it all night without ruining it.

It took 2 days to make it, since when I went to pick it up it was a poster and not the mat that I ordered. So they had to take another day and redo it. When doing this make sure that your, consultant knows what they are talking about. Mine did but the people making did not.

Depending on the size mat that you order, depends on the cost. I spent about $80.00.

It added a great touch to my wedding and it looked really good. It was an unexpected surprise...which I really liked.
