My suggestions depend on how much you are willing to spend.

A low cost option would be renting a few couches from a local furniture company for the lounge area. This will provide seating for guests during cocktail hour and fill the space more than just a few high top tables would. Guests could also utilize it during the reception if they wanted to chill out for a few.

Another low cost option would be to construct a backdrop style photobooth. This would provide good entertainment for guests as well. I’ve seen tutorials here on the bee on how to use PVC pipes draped with cloth to make the backdrop and then have a digital camera set up on a tripod. Perhaps you have a friend or cousin who can man it for you. Could be fun and give you some good souvenirs!

If you aren’t worried about budget, I would hire a photobooth as well as a large dance floor. You could also decorate the empty spaces with florals, do a big candy table, etc to take up the gaps.

We are having a photo booth and i could not be more excited about it! make sure you research the one you want though-sometimes they trick you at wedding shows and show up with a compltely different (smaller) booth.
