    I personally think no seat cushions would look best but 4+ hours on a wooden chair sounds painful.  Won’t the chairs be tucked in or covered by butts for pictures?  I think the guests’ comfort is worth using the free cushions.  Nobody is going to look at them and say “it’s a shame they’re not eggplant.”

    If i were you, i would go somewhere and make a place setting. They dont have to know you arent renting from them, that could still be”to be determined” status. Or go to the venue and try it out. I hoenstly think that Black wouldnt be horrible and its kind of a neutral. BUT i am one of those matchy matchy and hate black at weddings, i would just use the wood chairs!

    Since the tablecloths are eggplant, no one is going to notice this. Honestly they only would if your table cloths were white, and even then you probably would only notice them in detail photos such as the one you posted above. I say free cushions.

    Shkragoldfish:  hmm i ssee what you really mean by the cushiions. I personally love the look of a bare chair. But get what you mean with the sore bottom. I think because they are prtty minimal you could get away with the black. They would probably hide nicely against the dark purple table cloth. Go with freee!

    Shkragoldfish:  use the black ones. i had a similar color scheme to you and never considered this, and my photos came out great! (our default seat cushions were white, even though there wasn’t white in the color scheme)

    there are very few pictures of our chairs in our 900 edited images, and if it makes you feel any better, after the fact you so won’t care about this! $3.50 per cushion to rent is outrageous.

    looking at your photo, i don’t think it would be worth it to spend the extra rental money on plum cushions…nor do i think you should force your guests to sit in hard chairs for hours! definitely go black and don’t look back! haha!

    I think you will be fine with dark purple tablecloths, dark wood chairs. I would bet you don’t even notice the black seat cushions, especially when people’s butts are in them. Definitely have cushions though on those.

    Use the black cushions. If you are concerned about the pre- reception table shots, have the photographer remove the seat cushions from one side of the table.

    black… it’s a neutral.. i really don’t think it would stand out that much against eggplant!
