Stunning Lounges for your Wedding Reception

Making sure your guests are having a good time at your wedding can sometimes be a tricky tasks. For most weddings the main entertainment is provided by a band or DJ, which in some cases might be great for those people who love to dance, but what about the guest would rather spend the evening catching up with new friends and meeting new ones. With your guests in mind, maybe adding a lounge area to your reception might make perfect sense. From quirky to elegant, from traditional to modern, from white to black and everything in between, these lounge areas will surely be something your guests will never forget.

Source

From the antler chandelier, to the vintage wing-back chairs, to the fireplace, this outdoor lounge area really makes a stunning statement.

Source

Hay Bales are inexpensive and they make a charming touch to a ranch style wedding.

Source

Love the bohemian flair in this lounge area! If you had children attending your wedding this would be a great touch for them. The kids would love the fort styled area and you could even add a small TV so the kids would be entertained the entire night.

Source

This is probably one of my favorites. I love the elegance and simplicity of this lounge design.

Source

This southwestern-inspired lounge is absolutely gorgeous.

Source

I love the modern look to this stunning lounge area. Talk about making a statement!

Source

This is the perfect lounge design for a beach wedding! Love this!

Source

This black and white design screams GLAM! The mirrored table top gives this area that extra wow factor.

Source

Adding a lounge area next to the dance floor is a great idea that will allow your guests to rest in between their favorite jams.

Source 

Love the classic elegance of this design.

Source

I love the multiple seating options and how the design doesn’t take away from the stunning view of the ocean.

Showcase the focal point in the reception area by adding a beautiful lounge area that your guests will enjoy!

Source

Adding greenery as a backdrop can be inexpensive and make a dramatic impression.

Source

From the fairytale chairs, to the gorgeous crystal chandeliers, to the flowing fabric, and the backdrop of palm trees, this seating area is to die for!

Source

I give this design props for being the most creative. They took old pallets (probably from a local hardware shop), and create a fun lounge area. You could even paint the pallets different colors to enrich the look.

Source

The mix-and-match vintage furniture in this designs makes a beautiful lounge. I would love to hang out here!

Friday Floral – Backdrop Flowers

This weather we are having is no where close to the winter wonderland I was planning on for Colorado… but no complaints here. It makes me think back to summer floral trends. One in particular that I wish we could have had more of is floral backdrops. There is nothing like fresh flowers draping behind or above the guests to get everyone in a romantic mood.

One of my favorites, this is an excellent mix of lavender and Queen Anne’s Lace.

Source

Source

Lovely! So perfect for a centerpiece with the hanging baby’s breath.

Source

Perfect for a rustic barn wedding.

Source

Source

Source

The mix of ribbon colors is a fun twist.

Source

Source

So simple, yet so much detail.

Source

Source

You can customize the ribbon to have your new last name on it.

Source

Source

Mix and match flowers to add dimension.

This detail is one that can turn a plain space into a fun setting. Whether being used behind the bride and groom during the ceremony or hanging above the guest tables, this is a simple detail to add a little extra sparkle.
