I think it’s a good idea in theory. The big question is: would people know it was there and would it be worth your time/extra expense to create this space?

 

Our venue has a “library” and now you’ve got my wheels turning… having a place for the more introverted to go and chill out would be really considerate.

My venue has a front room you need to walk through to access the main area (tables/dance floor). I’m having my gift table here as well as my guest book, escort card display and a couple of tables where people can sit and chat if they wish to get away from the dance floor and music. I’m sure it won’t be overly quite in there as its only one room over from the band/DJ but it will provide a change of atmosphere if people want it

@nl:  It could be a perfect space for a photobooth.

i made a lounge.  our wedding was small and i didn’t want the dance floor to look “empty” so i cut it in half with 4ft planters as a room divider and made a lounge that overlooked the dance floor.  that way the guests didn’t have to just sit at their “tables” all night.  luckily, the venue had the sofas and tables so i didn’t have to rent them.

We were going to do this, but now we don’t have space to do so.

I’ve seen a few bees had them and nobody used them at all.

I think they are cute, but I don’t think they are worth the money if you have to spent $$ to have one.

We having one, in the big outside space. We kept it simple with a few couches, ottomans we rented, my dad bought three tables  and spray painted them. Most of friends like to party so I bet they will dancing. But I have a couple of friends who are laid back and don’t dance, and other family members who I hope will feel more comfortable sticking around to to talk and socialize when the dancing start as I know it’s not their thing.

you could do a homemade photo booth?

we are doing one ourselves, usually instant film for the photos.

or, some type of activity, like poker/card tables.

@nl:  Well yeah, but generally a lounge is differant from the typical chairs & tables.. hence where the cost comes in. Usually it’s furniture type [almost living room style].
