It all starts with that beautiful moment when you said “Yes!” and decided to spend the rest of your life with your best friend: then comes the planning, preparation, tastings, florals, laughs regarding the choreographed introduction your fiance wants to do, and then comes the look. The look is that moment when your wedding planner turns and says “RAIN PLAN”. The look is that moment when you hear those words “your day is going to be beautiful no matter what”. The looks is when a family member says “Don’t they say its GOOD LUCK when it rains on your wedding day?” Of course, a morning shower that leaves behind a magical rainbow can be considered good luck. However, the only time we want to hear the word “hurricane” is when our toes are in the sand and we are drinking it out of a pretty glass with a flamingo umbrella in it.
One thing that many soon-to-be couples don’t always consider after saving the date is making sure that the date really is saved. You’re planning your perfect wedding, and though you have hand selected a lot of the details there are things, such as the weather, that are out of your control.
A theme we really love during the reception of a wedding is the concept of a lounge! These lounges are perfect for cocktail hour or even as a substitute for assigned seatings. They provide a great atmosphere for the guests of your special day while enhancing the already beautiful landscape of the low country.
Below are even more great pictures of lounges that we have loved setting up over the years. Be sure to let us know if these give you any ideas!
