    Now that I’m planning my wedding I keep seeing all these upgraded options for chair covers and table overlays and so on.  I’ve never even noticed these things before!

    I’ve tried explaining this to my FI’s mum, who’s convinced we absolutely need chair covers at our venue.  No, they’re not the chair’s I’d choose, and no they’re not in our colour scheme, but WE are the ones who’ll have to spend an extra £400 on chair covers and I just cannot justify that.  Perhaps once it gets closer to the day and if she’s still bothered by it, she’ll pay out herself!

    I only noticed the chairs if they were terrible… Now I’m so obsessed with details that I’m convinced everyone will notice the chairs and I have to get Chiavaris.

    I only remember if they are uncomfortable. Sure I will notice the general decor and set up of the room but I probably wont remember specific details a day or two later unless it was extremely funny orunique, horribly rude (as in set up or pack down your own table and chairs) or really hideous!

    Ive voted yes but I’ve only noticed them when they were totally uncomfortable (which was more weddings than the ones that were comfortable!) 

    Pas long as they are comfortable however I think any chair would be ok ๐Ÿ™‚

    There are a million things that I never noticed about other ppl’s weddings that I never realized were significant to anyone till I started planning. Chairs were one of them. I remember where my chair was located but I have no idea if it was comfortable given that I only sat at it for a few moments during dinner and I certainly have no clue what it looked like. Save the money if it doesn’t bother you. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The only time I’ve noticed them was when we were at a wedding reception and the chairs were in REALLY bad condition- like rusted, and squeeky.  It doesn’t seem to be the case with the chairs you described.  I wouldn’t worry about it.  I don’t notice if chairs are plainer or fancier (and don’t care), as long as I can sit down without the chair breaking!

    I did notice the chairs before I started wedding planning.  When I look at the wedding I try to take in the whole picture, including the linens, centerpieces, chairs, floor, ceiling structure or decor, etc.  Then I look more closely at the little details.

    Yes, I did but I wouldn’t classify myself as the average wedding guest. I’ve always loved weddings and pay attention to even the smallest detail. The chairs are something that I definitely notice but I don’t think that most people do, unless of course they’re that ugly.

    Actually yes I did. For some reason I take note of chairs at pretty much any event I go to so it’s just one of those things I always noticed. It didn’t really make an impact on my over all feeling for the event though (unless they were super uncomfortable and we had to sit in them for a long time). Although I will say that chiavari chairs are my favorite so anytime I’ve gone to an event in the last few years (before we even got engaged) that had them I immediately got excited (I’m a little weird).

    Nope.  I stressed a bit about not having chair covers at my own wedding, and truthfully, I didn’t even notice the chairs at the reception.  It wasn’t until the next day, when Darling Husband and I were discussing the room, and how gorgeous it looked that I realized that I hadn’t even paid attention to the chairs.  I’m glad I saved myself the money, and didn’t bother renting chair covers, because they wouldn’t have made a difference.
