Wedding Lounge And Furniture Checklist
Let’s start by looking at everything you’ll need to consider when renting furniture for your wedding reception. Wedding planning is all about budgeting and being prepared, so use this checklist to ensure you’ve covered everything.
You don’t need to rent everything on this list, but it’s a good starting point to ensure you don’t forget anything important!
First things first, you need to think about chairs. A head count will give you a good idea of how many chairs you need to rent. You also need to decide which style of chair you want.
Do you want simple folding chairs, something standard like Chiavari chairs, or something specialty and memorable? Regardless of which route you choose, make sure the chairs are comfortable! Your guests will be sitting in them for hours.
Sofas and loveseats are a must for any lounge area. They provide a place for guests to relax, chat, and take a break from dancing. Plus, they look great in photos!
When selecting sofas and loveseats, you should pick something that brings an interesting look, but also fits in with the rest of the design. Choose pieces with plenty of cushions and the right height for your guests.
As for style, there are endless possibilities. You can go with traditional sofas and loveseats or mix things with modern pieces, tufted sofas, or side chairs. It all depends on the look you’re going for.
Armchairs differ from sofas and loveseats because they’re typically designed for one person. They’re a great way to add extra seating without taking up much space. They also look fantastic when grouped together to create a cozy reading nook or conversation area.
When choosing armchairs, comfort is key. They should also be the right size for your space. Oversized armchairs can make a small room feel cramped, while tiny chairs get lost in a large room. And as always, think about style! You can find armchairs in every imaginable style, from traditional to modern to everything in between.
Wedding Throw Pillows
On top of furniture, don’t forget the little details that make a lounge area feel cozy and inviting.
Throw pillows will give your guests something to lean back on and make your furniture look more put together. They also make the space feel more casual and approachable.
When selecting throw pillows, choose an assortment of sizes, shapes, and colors. You’ll want some larger pillows for the sofas and loveseats and smaller ones for the armchairs.
For color palettes, go with complementary hues that pair well with your overall color scheme. And don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns! A little variety adds visual interest and makes your lounge area more inviting. We suggest seeing if your linen for your tables comes in a pillow for the ultimate pattern play.
Wedding Benches and Ottomans
Let your guests kick their feet up and relax with benches and ottomans. They provide extra seating and can double as a place to put your drink or purse. You can even use them as impromptu coffee tables if you need somewhere to set down a plate of hors d’oeuvres.
There are many different styles of benches and ottomans to choose from. If you want a more traditional look, go with classic upholstered pieces. For a modern twist, try acrylic benches or ottomans with metal legs.
Wedding Coffee Tables
Coffee tables are the perfect place to set down drinks, appetizers, or even gifts for your guests. They help keep your lounge area organized and can also be used as seating if necessary. Natural wood tables are a great option if you want something charming. Or, try a glass coffee table for a modern twist.
Nothing says luxury like a chandelier. Chandeliers can take any lounge area from drab to fab in an instant. They add a touch of glamor and make the space feel more special. Plus, they double as a source of light, which is always a bonus.
Chandeliers generally come in two different styles: crystal or beaded, but at Curated Events, we have MANY more options! Other chandelier options we offer are: wooden beads, carriage lanterns, seagrass, and more! Crystal chandeliers are more formal, while beaded ones have a more casual ambiance.
When hanging a chandelier, ensure it’s dangling from the right height. You don’t want your guests banging their heads on it, but you also don’t want it so high that it’s out of view.
Ensure plenty of light in your lounge area by hanging a few string lights. String lights are relatively inexpensive and can complement any décor style. They’ll make the space more inviting and ensure your guests can see each other.
Wedding Stage/DJ Booth
If you have a band or DJ at your wedding, you’ll want to make sure that their area looks amazing since that’s where the guests will be directing their attention during the music!
Finally, no wedding is complete without a bar. Whether serving alcohol or not, bars are a great way to keep your guests hydrated and make the space more organized.
If you are serving alcohol, you need all the necessary supplies, such as glasses, mixers, and garnishes.
Consider the number of guests you are expecting to plan how many bars you will want. Our recommendation is one bar per 50 people. Bars can be 4ft- as large as your imagination allows! A big, creative centerpiece bar is always a great focal point.
Wedding Lounge And Furniture Design Tips
So, how do these elements combine to form a cohesive wedding lounge area? We’ve put together a few tips to help you get started.
Define the space: First, take a long look at the area you have to work with. Determine what size and shape of furniture will fit best. Then, decide how many guests you want to be able to accommodate. This step will help you determine how much furniture you need to rent. You’ll also need to accommodate your space to your indoor/outdoor setting.
Choose a theme: Once you have a general idea of the space, it’s time to start thinking about décor. What style do you want your lounge area to have? Modern? Glamorous? Garden? The sky’s the limit. Once you’ve chosen a theme, it will be easier to select furniture and décor that fits.
Get creative with furniture: Don’t be afraid to get creative with your furniture choices. You don’t have to stick to traditional lounge furniture. Get creative and mix and match different pieces to create a unique space.
Consider the lighting: Lighting is vital in any space, but it’s especially important in a lounge area. You want to create a space that’s warm and inviting. Ambient lighting, such as string lights or lanterns, is perfect for this purpose.
Add personal touches: Finally, don’t forget to add personal touches to your lounge area. Here’s your chance to really make it your own. Unique patterns, photos, and other personal details will make the space more special and ensure that your guests feel welcome.
