Cocktails & Jazz: Your Lounge-Inspired Wedding Reception

Cocktails, jazz and comfy couches will make your wedding reception a hit with your guests.

No matter what, a wedding reception is guaranteed to be lots of fun. But if you want your reception to have a more laid-back feel, consider creating your own lounge.

Instead of just having tables and a dance floor, create a lounge area as well, where guests can mingle among couches with trays of appetizers and martinis.

If you are having a small enough wedding, you can even skip the tables altogether and have guests situated on couches in a lounge setting, with servers carrying around plates of tapas and drinks from the bar.

Of course, what sort of lounge doesn't have great jazz? Whether you want to hire a band to play some jazz or have a DJ pick out all the favorites, jazz is the way to go to keep up the ambiance in a lounge-themed reception.

The lounge-theme creates an atmosphere of intimacy and keeps guests comfortable. This is a great way to have a reception that guests will remember for its individuality!
