As couples aim for more and more informality in their day, the idea of wedding lounge seating is more popular than ever.

The clusters of couches or relaxed lounge bar style set-ups, where guests can take a load off during the cocktail hour, or hang out for a respite from all the action on the dancefloor.

Whether it’s something you DIY or a space that your venue provides already, couples use rentals of unique sofas and arm chairs, gather hay bales or bean bags, or even use their own furniture, to create these casual indoor or outside spaces.

Many couples are even forgoing formal dining set-ups entirely and opting for lounge seating with buffet, BBQ or canapé catering.

So to help you gather some ideas for your very own wedding lounge, we’ve put together some of our favourite lounge seating set-ups for you to borrow/steal for your big day.
