We love when our partners share their knowledge with our Real Weddings Readers! This nugget comes from Jennifer Corrigan from Sacramento Event Co:
Provide Seating for 8+: Make sure your lounge area can accommodate at least eight people so that it keeps a warm, social and inviting space.
Lighting: Lighting the lounge is a fun way to set the ambiance and glam up the space.
Decorate with Bold Accents: From pillows and flowers to umbrellas and light fixtures, pull in pops of color around your main lounge area.
Add a Backdrop: Create a wall behind the lounge by using boxwood hedges.
Create Multiple Lounges in One: Start with a table and a tall floral arrangement as your center. Then, place the back side of four sofas or banquettes around it, and build your lounges by adding more pieces to the four sides. Just be sure to keep all four areas uniform in look.
Build a “Patio:” Set up your lounge to look like a “patio” off of your event space! Lay down sisal rugs or carpet to cover the area and string café lights above, then set your lounge up as you wish.
