Help! The chairs at our hotel are conference style chairs. Very normal, a tan color, and pretty ugly (in my opinion). I’ve been trying to figure out if I should either rent chiavari chairs or get chair covers. The chair rentals are so expensive! They are $9-$10 each. Chair covers are around $5.75, a little better but not amazing.
How many of you are just using the hotels chairs to save money and what’s your opinion – does this make a big difference? I’m trying to figure out my decor budget and trying to see if I should allocate more to the chairs or the flowers or something else?

I have been to many weddings where there was just the normal hotel provided chairs (no covers or anyhting) and no one cared. We were there to have fun!

I do not like the conference style chairs either (after being in the hotel business for 13 years I was sick of looking at them LOL). Chivari chairs are pretty, but really I do love the look of chair covers. If it’s going to make a difference to you budget-wise, where you can spend that money on something else that’s more important to you (flowers/food/photographer or whatever) then I would do the chair covers instead of chivaris. I just think they make a room look so much more dressed-up and finished then bare chairs.

I think it only makes a difference in the pictures without people in them. In all your pics of your friends and family, the eye is drawn to the people in the chairs, not the chairs themselves. I opted not to cover up the chairs, and I don’t think one person (besides me) will notice!

I agree. Plus I often think that chair covers are just TOO much fabric. The often do not fit well and just make the room look dated and dumpy.
