Easily adaptable, chic, and just plain stunning, here are some wedding lounge ideas for you to consider for your big day!

2. Indoor arrangements

Lounge areas can be every bit as welcoming indoor as they are for outdoor settings. Everyone needs a little break from the all standing and dancing they’ll be doing at your big day, so offering a chic seating area is the way to go.

3. Poolside

While definitely a more informal choice for a lounge setting, a poolside lounge area is an easy spot to play with. Using a combination of cocktail tables and small comfy couches is all you really need for a poolside reception.

Let the lads catch up with a cigar in one hand, and booze in the other while you dance the night away with your gals. This cigar lounge station is a perfect corner for the boys to relax and have their boy-talk.
