Keeping all of your guests happy and entertained at your Connecticut wedding can an extremely daunting task. For a typical wedding, the main entertainment is usually provided by a DJ or live band on the dance floor; and while this is great for the majority of your guests, there will always be a certain group of guests that are not into dancing or listing to loud music and prefer a more intimate environment to mingle.

An up and coming trend the Connecticut wedding catering professionals at Fitzgerald’s Fine Catering have noticed over the coarse of 2019 is a reception lounge area. The idea of creating a lounge area is to offer your wedding guests an place to relax, away from the loud music and chaos of the dance floor. It’s a place to sit comfortably and have an intimate conversation, or just enjoy a drink. Many Connecticut Wedding Reception Venues provide comfortable furniture that can offer a modern or old fashioned aesthetic to the area. We have noticed many of our Connecticut wedding clients utilizing a lounge to feature a favorite microbrew, signature cocktail or specialty dessert. Other ideas include having a photo booth, any yard or table games, photo slideshow, or a build-your-own drink station. Lounges aren’t for cocktail hour only, you can extend your wedding into the late hours by creating an after party!

We have seen wedding reception lounges that range from simple and conventional to modern and enterprising. Many of the Connecticut Brides and Grooms we work with prefer to remove the traditional cocktail table layout and go with a more comfortable and intimate setting with couches and lounge chairs. The lounge area lighting can create amazing photos opportunities and sets the mood by creating a level of ambiance for the room. Whether you decide to go with a chandelier, candles, or specialty lighting the key is to keep the level of light low and soft.

The most crucial objective of your wedding lounge area is to allow your guests a place to get intimate with friends, so it is important to make sure the room is comfortable and inviting. You may even want to consider adding a fireplace, which will be useful in the evening when temperatures drop.

Most people consider the wedding reception to be the most fun and entertaining part of a wedding. It’s the best time to connect with family members and friends and create a memory that will last a lifetime. With an indoor lounge you can create an amazing atmosphere with lighting, tenting structures, fireplaces and candles! We recommend going to and doing a search for wedding reception lounges for inspirational ideas. You can contact Fitzgerald’s Fine Catering for any questions you may have for your wedding.
