Wedding Chill Out Areas Your Guests Can Cozy Up To
Adding a cill out area to your reception space makes it so much easier for guests to have a little chat and mingle in a comfortable setup.
Depending on the venue and the vibe you are going for there are a million ways to create a little magical space, consider some retro furniture, a cute velvet lounge (marketplace can really be your best friend here!) low tables and floor seating is always a great idea, your guests will enjoy the opportunity to spread out and get comfortable. Make sure to provide lots of floor pillows and blankets, remember we this is the UK after all!
Layered rugs are an amazing way to warm up any reception space and they really help define the space! Add a few small touches, some flowers, a polaroid camera..
One of the most important element to consider is the lighting. The most effective, not to mention budget friendly way to achieve that warm and inviting feels is with candlelight.
Anpther beautiful and always quite striking way of illuminate your chill out area is string lights.. There are lots out there nowadays, they are not as expensive as you may think and you can always re use them around your house after the wedding!
Ok now your lounge area is looking so cool what's missing???!!! You know what I like once I get to put my feet up and chill for a minute? you guessed it, a drink!!
Cool chill out areas call for a stand out, unique and pretty unforgettable bar... my favourite? Whiskey and cigars! and yes we had one at our wedding, and yes I still hear the boys raving about it!
And how about a Lemonade bar if you are having a summer wedding? a Gin bar if thats what you are into? or if you want to keep the alchol level a bit lower hot choc bar anyone?
Charity shops are amazing for finding mismatched ornate glasses, metal mugs or vintage trays! And if it is just too much for you ask a professional and they will make sure all these elements are sourced and perfectly styled for you on the day!
