    Please don't use all caps & yell at us, it makes your post hard to read.  Anyway...
    I am using a concrete patio area if the inside ballroom is not big enough for my tables & a dance floor.  Don't ask anyone to dance on the grass, its too hard in dress shoes.

    well everyone kows that its in our yard, so they know to bring flats to wear..

    ok well if you've told people to bring flats then its fine, but i would still go for the concrete is a lot less messy and i wouldnt assume just because a wedding is in a yard not to wear heels, i mean it sounds like you would prefer to have it in te garden which is fine i would just be worried about my guests shoes being ruined and the lawn

    Maybe you could bring in a dance floor for the grass? I don't think people are going to realize that they can't wear heels to a wedding since most women feel more dressed up in them. Or maybe you could do something to make the concrete area look nicer?

    Yeh, I think you either need to get some nice plants/flowers/decorations for the concrete area or rent a dance floor to put down on the grass.

    We're having dancing on grass, but we did tell everyone not to wear heels, and it'll just be light dancing with an IPOD.  I think it depends a little on what you're looking for in the way of dancing.

    If your budget allows, I'm thinking the best of both worlds is if you rented a dance platform and set it in the grass. If definitely sounds like the most attractive setting and you shouldn't assume all of your guests will be on the ball enough to wear flats. I had a grandma who walked everywhere in heels and even cleaned in heels because she claimed it hurt her to wear flats. Besides, a platform won't take away from the outdoor, rustic quality of your wedding/reception.

    I would definitely go with concrete instead of grass.  Even though people know you're getting married in your yard they will still likely pick shoes based on their outfit, not necesarrily assuming there won't be a solid dance floor.  If concrete is an option, it would be my 1st choice.
