Me too!  We would love to rent some lounge furniture, but it seems REALLY expensive.  I’m in the same area as well – any ideas yet?

I’ve been wanting to do a loung seating area near the dance floor because otherwise the non-dancers are segregated to their tables.

I know Miss Hippo (on the blog) did this, so you could look at her posts for inspiration.

I have rented lounge furniture for our reception!  I think it is going to look amazing!  We will have it set up close to the bar. We are using it instead of cocktail tables.


ETA:  We are renting a black leather couch, a  matching loveseat and a matching chair, all for the low low price of $200.  Originally, I didn’t want to rent the furniture, because I was nervous no one would use it, but for the low cost, I don’t mind!

I rented 4 large square leather ottomans which were positioned in 2 groups near the dance floor and bar.  They looked great.  But nobody, not a single person, sat on them the entire night – well maybe someone may have sat down for a second to put on flip flops since the basket was right next to them, but I didn’t see it happen.  Eventually 2 of them got pushed off to the side to make more room for dancing… I guess its a good thing that everyone was up & dancing rather than sitting around?  But that was $750 I wish I hadn’t spent!

Im doing this well not renting lol. Im getting married at a country club with like  amin floor that has couches and chairs in it. These are going to me moved for the cermony to take place there anyway so we asked the caterer to move them upstairs by the dance floor. I think I may cover them in something to work with the wedding decor. But I love this idea, it was my friend who first mentioned the idea of a VIP section to me.

I dont know if I would spend the money on renting them though. Like reebee said it might be extra money you dont need to spend if no one was going to sit on them anyway.
