Five Ideas for Wedding Lounge Seating

Five Ideas for Wedding Lounge Seating

In our opinion, every wedding can use a little extra seating when budget and space allows, giving guests a comfy place for conversation (and photo ops!) during cocktail hour and after dinner. Here are five styles of lounge seating to work with various wedding styles. And while you’re at it, get creative! Add big floor cushions around a coffee table, a standing mirror against the wall, and don’t forget a little extra floral or conversation-piece decor for the lounge area. Guests will appreciate the added touch and we assure you people will use the space!¬†

And we can’t talk Boho without throwing in a teepee, am I right? Put up a teepee in your reception and watch your Instagram wedding hashtag blow right up. You’re welcome ūüėČ Photos by¬†Katie Pritchard¬†and onelove photography

What says “rustic” more than hay bales topped with mismatched blankets? This plan works for ceremony seating or as benches near the dance floor at a rustic barn wedding. Check thrift stores for soft blankets in gingham, floral prints, or quilted as shown above. Photo via¬†Southern Weddings¬†

White leather, low profile furniture is modern and sleek. Modular sections that can be placed together give you the ability to create a large lounge area that seats many people at once. This event is in Bali but vendors like Chic and Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals will have what you need in Central Florida.  

Are you adding lounge seating at your event? Which style best fits your wedding?


  1. Wow, I truly enjoyed these wedding lounge setting ideas. I found this post very helpful. Actually my sister also wants a DIY beachside wedding ceremony at the most beautiful NYC wedding venues. She needs my help to plan her big day and I think these inspirations are brilliant.
