Why every wedding should have a chill out zone

Your wedding venue has to deliver on all fronts to ensure the big day you always dreamed of. As well as providing the perfect backdrop for you and your partner to say “I do” and dance the night away with those closest to you, your venue should offer the respite you and your guests need to enjoy and absorb this very special occasion wholeheartedly. That’s where a wedding chill out zone comes in!

Chill out zones have become popular fixtures at weddings of all shapes, styles and sizes, and a regular request amongst the couples marrying here at Bourton Hall. But why should every wedding make room for a chill out zone?

A place for brides, grooms and guests to gather their thoughts

With all the wedding planning stress you’ve had to endure over the weeks, months or even years leading up to your wedding day, every bride and groom will appreciate the welcome retreat of a dedicated chill out space.

Stealing away a few moments alone together is what many already married couples recommend to newlyweds, and your chill out zone will provide the most comfortable surroundings to do just that. Your chill out area will be appreciated by your guests too as Your Fabulous Wedding details:

“Not everyone will want to dance all night.  So providing a comfortable seating area, somewhere a bit quieter, is a nice touch.  Especially if you have older relatives who may want to sit and chat. You can also provide blankets for people to use later on in the evening if it gets a bit chilly.”

Cement your wedding theme – or deviate from it!

Incorporating a chill out zone is a great way to continue and cement your wider wedding theme and colour scheme.

Whether you’re going vintage or rustic (mix and match furniture and hay bales will look great in boho style chill out areas), modern or glamourous, your chill out zone can be decorated and accessorised with your wedding style in mind.

Alternatively, those hosting more classic, formal weddings may want to take their chill out zone décor in the opposite direction. A contrasting theme will showcase another aspect of your unique taste and ensure a wedding that really reflects you as a couple.

Make the most of your surroundings

If the weather behaves itself, the great outdoors offers the perfect setting for your chill out area. Whether partially covered or out in the open, your outdoor chill out zone will provide a magical experience, especially as the evening draws in. There is after all nothing better than snuggling up under the stars.

Make your outdoor chill out space relaxing and comfortable – not actually chilly – by accessorising with outdoor heaters, blankets, cushions, rugs and ambient lighting to bring the indoors out and provide a haven for you and your guests.
