Lounge furniture is great for an array of reasons. For one thing, your guests don't want to spend four hours sitting at their dinner table talking to the same people ... they're at a wedding and want to mingle! It creates another atmosphere that enables them to meet and talk to different groups without standing around the entire time. If your dancing area is in a separate room, it would also provide an area for everyone to take a break and cool off after tearing up the dance floor! You can also play around with different seating options by using couches, benches, or ottomans as alternative ceremony seating.
