We like to create lounge areas where guests can kick back, relax and socialize. The lounge continues to become more popular for weddings; it’s another aspect of the reception that adds excitement while giving that chill vibe to a room. Lounges can be added right around your dance floor for people to enjoy the entertainment; or they can be included in quieter surroundings where guests can have easy conversations.
Some designs can be very elaborate and some quite simple it all depends on the room you are working in, your design aesthetic and your vision of how your guests will enjoy their evening. In designing a lounge, keep in perspective the room is for relaxing and socializing. In this environment a lounge can be as simple as one sofa, and focal point of a refreshment bar or flowers. The design should encompass s
ome, if not all, of the five senses including sight, touch, smell, hearing and taste.
For this lounge we used modern but simple deep red sofas. An acrylic bar lit from behind helped set the mood and offered refreshments. Small groupings of chairs and end tables or coffee tables are great areas for small gatherings of couples or relatives to catch up on the latest things happening in each others lives.
Consider creating your own lounge and you will find your guests enjoying the space!
