I second the idea of chair sashes… Much cheaper! You can easily make them yourself or order them online. I would save the money for uplighting which will really help transform the ballroom more than chair covers. Or save it for something your guests will enjoy 🙂

No chair covers! Nobody will notice so save the money! I’d just be glad that they look comfy!

I have a personal bias agaisnt chair covers. I think they can outweigh all your other decor with a sea of white.

If you really want to lessen the amount of the chair color visible, using chair sashes is an option. If you want a bit more fabric, you can use organza table runners as sashes.

Organza chair sashes are 7.5 x 108″

Table runners are 12×108″.

There are many ways to tie a sash that will cover more of the back of the chair.

I don’t think those chairs look too bad at all! I wouldn’t even spend the money on sashes. I think once you put linen on the table, the chairs will look totally fine.

I agree with the sash’s as a good alternative option.  Not only do chair covers cost an arm and a leg, but they only look nice when no one is sitting on them. The moment everyone’s in them, they get all pulled and bunched and messy.

Personally, I think worrying about chairs is one of those things that’s not worth the energy it consumes. The important thing about chairs is the people they hold, not whether or not they are decorated. Let your guests “decorate” the chairs with their presence.
