One thing I hate about our venue is the chairs. They’re so plain! We can’t afford Chiavari chairs unfortunately as we’re having about 275 guests.. Do you think these would be a good compromise? I don’t really care for the look of chair covers and our color scheme is mostly purples with some green. Thanks!

@BookwormBride2Be: I actually like the look of wooden folding chairs. I think they’ll look great in that space!

Chiavari chairs are pretty and all, but to me it’s one of those things I’ve personally thought about, then had to ask myself how much it matters and if anyone will actually notice, care, or remember what the chairs looked like. I doubt anyone has ever said either “Those chairs are life changingly delicious” or “Everything is ruined because chairs.”
The one you posted is perfectly suitable and nicer than the provided ones to be sure. I’m just saying don’t break the bank or stress about it. 🙂

Thanks! We can get the chairs for about 1000 or less for 275 chairs, including delivery and etc. It’s only a little more than chair covers would cost, but I love the look so much more, it would keep my family from having to do any additional work, and it would definitely complete the room for me, which is nice considering our venue was not very expensive! Thank you guys for your opinions. 🙂

They look nice but also very uncomfortable to sit in for long >_O Any kind of cushion or anything?

I like the look of those because they are unique! But you can always dress them up with organza chair sashes [which are reletively cheap!] – linentablecloth.com is have a 25% off sale now!
These are our chairs, we’ll be putting fuschia organza sashes on them for the ceremony, and covering them with chair covers for the reception.

@BookwormBride2Be: So I love chivari chairs, but let’s face it, they’re not actually that comfortable. My first choice, believe it or not (which I didn’t do), would be wooden chairs like that! 😀

@BookwormBride2Be: Do the chairs in your venue pic come at no cost?
If so, I would use them. As a pp has said, no one will remember the chairs.
