I love the ruffle ones, but guys may feel a little uncomfortable sitting on them (they almost look like a dress).  I never understood the scuba covers.  I thought the point was to hide the chairs.  The middle picture is basic, but I like those the best.  They’re a great blank slate to personalize with sashes, flowers, etc.

If you are going to do chair covers and they fit with your theme and budget, I would go with the ruffled ones. I don’t think guys would care either way.

I absolutely love the 1st ones with ruffles! I haven’t seen those before!! I love going to weddings and seeing things you haven’t seen before! Go for those! They also don’t make the tables look like cloth overload. sometimes it seems too much having chair covers and full length tablecloths. Those are neat because they are shear and stand out away from the table.

I’ll be honest, I hate chair covers. I think they look so, over powering. They weigh down the feel of a lot of decore. It’s like when a cake has too much thicky icky nasty tasting frosting. However, I will say this. I love the ruffled ones!! So unique and def. not over powering!!

I like the ruffled ones, but it really depends on whether you are trying to conceal ugly chairs or just decorate nice one. The ruffle cover doesn’t hide anything.

I love the first ones, the ruffled type, the best. Those are really nice styles and I really like most all of them actually. Not a fan of the green covers, even if they were a different color. Are you unhappy with the chairs as is?

I personally felt like chair covers were an added expense we could leave out (even thought they are pretty). The venue we picked has beautiful chairs actually and that’s part of the reason I picked it, the other place we were looking at had chairs I did not like but the idea of spending well over $1000 on chair covers just didn’t sit well with me, it’d rather put that money into something else. Had we picked the other venue I would’ve probably gone with them, I just would not have been happy to add that expense.

I’m going to go against the grain here…I hate the ruffled ones. On the same note, I love #2 and #3. #2 is very classic and traditional. #3 is super modern with sleek lines. The last pic you posted in pink looks like a giant ribbon of tulle which maybe scratchy on open back dresses. So my favorite would be #2
