One of the wedding trends for 2013 is reception lounges. These are areas in the reception space set aside for sitting and chatting without the distraction of dinner or dancing. Reception lounges are a wonderful idea for weddings since often times weddings are a way to bring people together that do not normally see each other. This provides them a space to communicate that is comfortable. I love reception lounges because they add a touch of warmth and homeyness to the wedding. Besides all of their practicality, they can be so creative and elegant!
