Checkerboard flooring – primarily in black and white tones – has been popular for centuries. The classic, timeless look adds an air of sophistication to a foyer, great room, and a wedding venue. For most wedding receptions, the dance floor is one of the focal, centralized points of the space. Some reception sites have built-in checkered flooring, while many couples desiring the fanciful look may need to rent a black-and-white checkered dance floor or have one custom made to also include a monogram.
Browse some of our favorite ways Inside Weddings couples have incorporated checkered flooring for their nuptials. From using iconic checkered-floor ballrooms as bridal portrait scenes, to sharing a romantic spin during a "first look" on a checkerboard porch, to performing a first dance on an iconic black-and-white checker dance floor, there's nothing more magical than the contrasting tones of a beautiful checkered floor – especially when it's enhanced with elegant patterns or lettering by way of gobo lighting.
