Apologies!!! We didn’t share last week’s wedding inspiration mood board on Ishari De Silva Weddings so here it is full of Wedding Reception Lounge Area Inspiration.

Not the most popular trend in England but it is slowly trickling in from America. I personally love lounge areas at weddings. Not only does it add more character to a wedding but it is also practical and somewhat necessary. At the reception it is vital to have a seating area for your guests if the dancing is in a separate room/marquee to the wedding breakfast. It is also more interesting for your guest to walk in to another beautifully designed and styled room for the evening reception if your budget permits. A Moroccan/Eastern inspired wedding would be far more interesting with a shisha/hookah (which ever name you use) lounge for your evening guests or as seen on our Magical Moroccan Wedding Inspiration Board you can create a a very romantic lounge area with lots of Moroccan light and lanterns!
Outdoor lounge areas under a canopy is also brilliant to keep your guests cool and aways from the sun during drinks after the ceremony. Using light fabrics can create a very romantic whimsical feel and you can always add lots of candles to update the look for the evening reception. Whatever your colour scheme, design, theme or feel of your wedding creating a complimenting lounge area will be a wow factor for your guest but most importantly it is a great way to mix & mingle while giving your tired little feet a break from all that dancing!
Happy wedding planning!
