I shoot a lot of marquee weddings. More and more, the dancefloor bit is draped with a black starcloth. This is simply a black lining (rather than the usual white/ivory) with tiny LED lights in it. It loks great and really help create a good atmosphere for dancing. If the budget will stretch to it, go for it.

From a photography point of view it can be great. By zooming in and out as you take the photo you can make the LEDs ‘streak’ across the photo whilst you stay ‘still’ in the middle. I think it looks cool.
