    I find chair covers awkward to sit on.  Yep, they look cute in pictures, but they are never fun to sit on.  Bows at most.

    I hate chair covers so much. They just look so 80s and always end up sticking to my legs. I’ve also never remembered a chair I’ve ever sat on at a wedding.

    I’ve been struggling with this problem as well (well….as much as you can struggle over a problem about CHAIRS, haha). The chairs at my venue are alright, not horrible but not fancy Chiavari chairs either. They’re those ones with metal legs and cheap wooden seats and back.

    My venue is beautiful and doesn’t need much in the way of decor (log cabin-ish, all wood, exposed beams, stone fireplace and mantle) but I’m worried it will look TOO plain with those chairs. But I HATE those chair covers, and I feel like if I use them, the place will just be a sea of white fabric, which takes away from the “natural” beauty look I’m going for.

    So I’ll definintely be watching this thread, because right now I’m considering just tying a ribbon to the chairs, but that might be worse….like trying to make the ugly chair look nicer will just make it uglier.

    UGH! Never in my life did I think this much about chairs of all things.

    what about just having a burlap or tulle bow without a cover?
