Contrary to popular belief (aka public opinion), not every wedding has to be a sit-down dinner with dancing. Many of today’s brides and grooms are choosing a destination wedding abroad followed by a celebratory party upon their return home. But rather than a formal dinner as their wedding reception, we’re seeing more and more couples changes things up with a lounge-style cocktail party format. For instance, for one such couple, we turned the traditional Grand Ballroom at the prestigious Rittenhouse Hotel into a contemporary lounge setting. A lounge that was jammed not with 72″ round tables, but with a cozy mix of high and low cocktail tables and residential-style seating areas.
