I prefer the last 2 photos… I couldn’t imagine covering the chairs up! These chairs are so beautiful because of the clean lines & I think that the fabric only takes away from the overall look. 🙂

I think it’s a personal choice on what looks best to you. I agree with Recessionista, I would choose the Chiavaris without any covers because I like the look of them in and of itself.

I second…if you are going to pay extra for chivari chairs, why would you cover them up! If you want chair covers I would cut costs by going with the standard ballroom chairs – for chivari I would leave them as they are. At most maybe a simple sash around the back!

I agree, I prefer the uncovered chairs. Especially if you were to have those nipped tablecloths from the second photo – the covered chairs just overwhelm the look. The uncovered chairs provide contrast and nice clean lines to offset the covered tables.

@MsHR….if that’s what "spoke" to you, and you’re okay with any additional cost to do that, then I would say go for it. They’re beautiful no matter what, it really comes down to a matter of what your taste is, and what your vision it for your wedding. Whatever you pick, it’s going to look gorgeus!

why did he chuck a hissy fit over the chair – he sounds a bit precious to me….. maybe we missed a fashion memo about them?

You and your chivari chairs, LOL.

I like them UNCOVERED. To me, covered=busy. Uncovered is very chic and clean. They’re prettier that way, in my opinion…less busy and cluttery almost. I just think they’re so elegant uncovered….

Great minds think alike.

Don’t listen to your planner/other people. I wonder what’s in it for them? After all, it’s YOUR money, not theirs. A friend of mine is getting chair covers at $4/pop b/c her mom has to have them. She doesn’t want to spend the money on them because that $400 can be used elsewhere! And I bet I won’t care that the chair I’m sitting on is now $4 higher, haha. You can have some sweeet centerpieces for that of money! Or buy a nice camera for your honeymoon? Aw yeah
