As more and more couples do their very best to create a celebration that keeps family and friends both entertained and comfortable, much thought is put into the seating arrangements for loved ones – and we're not just talking about reception tables! Wedding lounge areas – characterized by plush lounge furniture, chic coffee tables, and ottomans – are a popular wedding trend that can be set up during cocktail hour or the reception. We've seen some beautiful lounges at outdoor weddings, tent receptions, and ballroom affairs. 

To create the look for yourself, rent lounge furniture in the same color palette as the rest of your décor, and choose a space at your venue that allows for a grouping of chaises, armchairs, or sofas – preferably next to the bar. As guests sip on your signature cocktails, they'll want somewhere to relax and mingle with other guests. What better way to have your loved ones enjoy each other's company than by giving them a space to be entertained in a comfortable, homey setting.

Discover 16 wedding lounge ideas below – all of which were enjoyed by real Inside Weddings brides and grooms at their own nuptials.
