Janet Dunnington’s Take on a Fun Wedding Trend: the ‘Lounge’

One of 2013’s hottest wedding trends has been the addition of an ear-marked ‘lounge’ space to the reception floor plan.

A perfect way to add a dash of personal flair or elaborate on a wedding theme, the lounge creates a wonderful spot to sip a cocktail and catch up with guests away from the energy of the dance floor. Pictured above, a fresh and inspired lounge area in natural colors.  Sarah and Mark’s color scheme of navy and white theme permeated the event from the sail-cloth tent to the neatly-tied flip-flops, a welcome reward for weary wedding-going feet!

For Elizabeth and Jeremiah, we created a lounge with a more open airy feel, with soft colors and candles, making a seamless bridge between the rolling, landscaped grounds and the reception tent. We love this trend as much as our brides and grooms. It’s a beautiful and highly personal way to create a little oasis in the midst of the reception hustle and bustle. Ask Janet about other fun ways to customize this space…a little cocktail bar, a photo booth, a cigar station for the gents. You dream it up and we make it happen!
