No. 7 on our list of the top ten wedding trends for 2013 is.....
The Reception Lounge!
Okay so that probably wasn't much of a surprise since we said it in the title, but we can still get excited because this one's really fun!

And just like with nightclubs, there's a variety of themes you can play with to enhance your lounge. From an all white super lounge to bohemian chic.
When your indoors you can create an amazing atmosphere with lighting and create drama with pipe and drape. Outdoors your lounge can be just as fabulous with tenting structures and loads of candles! And there's tons of rental companies out there specializing in lounge furniture. FormDecor has loads of modern and mid-century furniture, while Found and Archive Vintage Rentals have amazing amounts of vintage and rustic pieces!
But by far the funnest (yes I know that's not a real word) part is taking your lounge beyond just seating. A lounge is a great way for guests to mingle with each other, or take a break from all of that dancing. So add a cigar bar or tastings of your grooms favorite brews. And signature digestif and dessert passed around the lounge area, would be absolutely delightful to all of your guests! And with only one wedding a lifetime everyone should be delighted.
