    So I have this right, the chairs you get are the ones in the picture? Ok…personally I love them. I think they are uber cute and very different. I would think you paid more to have those…maybe thats just me but I think they seem unique and more special.

    Are they plastic or ???  I like the unique shape of them, but if they’re the lightweight plastic chairs (like people use on their patios), then….I don’t like them so much.

    They look like they are plastic… are they? I love the shape of them though, but for a wedding, I don’t know iif I would want them.

    I think they look very unique despite being plastic!

    Is there an in between chair you could rent that would be an upgrade from those but cheaper than the chivari?

    Even though they’re plastic, I like them. That’s a barn right? Or something similar to a rustic feel? I don’t think they’re horrible by any means. You can always attach like a ribbon or something to the backs to spice them up a bit? Maybe?

    I’m with milesbella. I don’t mind the shape of them, color etc. but I’m not sure I could get over the plastic part of it. Is there any flexibility to find a cheaper chair rental from an outside source?

    I think they LOOK really cute. I love the shape. They are so neat. HOWEVER, the fact that they are plastic is a negative, in my opnion..

    Something to think about – when I went to look at my venue before I booked it, the coordinator asked me if I remembered what kind of chair I sat in at the last wedding I attended. For the life of me, I could not remember! I think it is a detail most wedding attendees will forget about or hardly notice. If you love everything else, the chairs are minor!

    Also, after looking at your photo I realized I’d seen a wedding on facebook (wedding creeping…oops) that was at the same venue. They used the plastic chairs with dark purple linens and it really didn’t look that bad.

    @WannabeMrsV: That’s a good point. You just reminded me that the only chairs I remember are from the wedding where they were plastic Embarassed. Some of the bigger people who a little concerned…That changed my opinion a little on the plastic…

    Oh, I like them.  They are way better than the brown metal folding chairs we’ll probably end up with.

    I second messybride- is there no other option than plastic or chivali?  Chivali chairs aren’t worth it in my opinion.  The fact that the existing chairs are plastic is annoying, but not a deal-breaker for me.  Are they grey or cream or white?  I’ll think they’ll provide some nice lines in photos 🙂
