Wedding Lounging is so hot right now. Giving your guests somewhere comfortable and informal to relax into your day is just about the best solution to the ‘afternoon lull’ that everyone talks about. Stuffed to the brim with delicious wedding food and booze, all you actually want to do is curl up in the corner and have a breather for an hour. Little Lenders, give the people what they want…
1 // LIVING ROOM LOUNGING
Create the ultimate ‘lounge experience’ with guest feeling right at home. Cue mixed British design furniture, kitsch lamp shades strung above and textured cushions for this look.
2 // HAYBALING
Yup, still a firm favourite for rustic and country weddings – the hay bale sofa. Throw over some crochet blankets for a little more comfort which would also come in handy for the evening setting in. Fire pits are the perfect accompaniment. Guests will love this, trust us.
3 // BOHEMIA DEN
Create a secret bohemian den under the trees with soft drapes. Lay mixed persian rugs and cushions for real laid back vibes. Hanging features above look divine to really make an impact and festoon lights for when darkness falls.
4 // DECKCHAIR DELIGHT
Bring a little nostalgia into the mix with mis-matched striped deckchairs. So British. ‘Bride and Groom’ chair backs adds a extra little detail and a smile to faces.

5 // ECCLECTIC COOL
This space is everything. One off pieces, mixes of bold patterns, colour and texture. Bohemian brides are going to love this. Center and side tables with floral and small decor details looks really rad and double up as somewhere for guests to rest drinks.
6 // INDIVIDUAL SPACES
Want to give your guests a little alone time while you have yours? Individual rugs and cushions scattered outside do just that. Perfect too if you’re planning a picnic wedding.

7 // ALL PILE ON
Or go the other way, create a great big pile of rugs and cushions – Free for all! Trays and low tables with lanterns and places for drinks keep this practical.
8 // CINEMA CHILLING
This idea I am mad about. I actually wanted to create this at our own day but couldn’t pull it off in time. Share your ceremony with evening guests that might not have seen you say ‘I do’ or why not create a video of you and your new hubby’s highlights through the years.
9 // LOW DOWN LOUNGE
With pouffes and upturned halved barrels this is all about getting guests to go low. Not one for the oldies but your pals are going to get right into this. The perfect spot to relax after cutting some rug on the dance floor.
10 // DIY TIPI
Create your own tipi filled with cosy cushions for couples piled at the back. Also a sweet spot for a couple of styled shots with your photographer on the day. With crochet bunting dotted above and jam jar tea lights leading a pathway in the evening this is beyond cute right?
