What Furniture Should I Have At My Wedding?
Having a lounge area is the perfect touch to bring your venue together and fill in any blank spaces there may be. Our inventory range is vast, and a lounge area can consist of anything from a single statement sofa, to 3 collections of 5-seat lounge areas. We're always here to make suggestions on lounge parings and bespoke collections, but let's start by asking the following questions...
Who is it for? Take into consideration who will use the lounge area the most. Elderly guests won’t want to struggle in and out of low-level seating but couples can’t always cosy up in an armchair.
How many seats do I need? If your lounge area is in a popular location like next to the dance floor or bar, it’s good to consider a large sofa and a couple of complimentary pieces. If it’s for a more intimate setting, why not try pairing two wingback chairs with an elegant yet practical side table?
Do I need a table? If your lounge area is near the bar or tea and coffee station, it’s essential to have plenty of surfaces for people to put their drinks down on. You don’t want disgruntled guests with kicked-over glasses.
What style is the wedding? If you’re having a classic wedding why not try neutrals like our Ophelia or Lily Sofas. Or if you’re having an outdoor wedding, you may want to consider outdoor seating such as our rattan lounge furniture, perfect to go around the fit pit.
5. What colours should I have? Neutral furniture like our Laura or Jane chairs are great to pair with a lot of styles and easy to match to your wedding colours. If you’re looking to make a statement, bold accent chairs like Monroe or Oscar are a great way to show off your personal style.
The most important thing is to choose the furniture that you want and like. Don’t feel confined to having a certain style or piece of furniture just because you think it’s what others will want. Hiring a lounge area is a great way to show off your flair and create a talking point at your wedding.
