Our reception provides chairs… but they’re definitely showing some wear. They will also rent us chair covers for $.50/ea (basically enough to cover the cost of laundering).
I have to admit I’m not a big fan of the chair covers. We’ll have white linens on the tables (Those are provided by the venue. We’re adding burlap runners), and with white chair covers, it all just starts to look a bit… messy. I’m not sure if a chair sash will help or hurt the issue… But, we’re really like to avoid spending a couple hundred more dollars to rent other chairs and have them brought in.
What are your suggestions for taming the look of chair covers?
Here’s a photo from another wedding at the venue, to give you the gist of what I’m talking about:
Thanks for any creative advice!

You can always purchased differant chair covers, in a differant color. [At linentablecloth.com you can get them for $1.99 – $2.19 each, and they have 20% off sales often, as well as free shipping on orders over $50].
If you don’t want chair covers at all, there are many other options such as chair sleeves, ties, sashes, or bands – but some of them can get costly.

I thought I was the only person who doesn’t like chair covers! I hate them! Especially with the matching white table cloths! I’m not using anything on the chairs for my wedding.
If the chairs themselves don’t look too bad you could try a sash with out the cover like these…

I too am not a fan of chair covers.
Also, it looks like the chairs at your venue have arms (looking at that pic) which makes the chairs look like saggy ghosts. Do you happen to have a pic of the actual chairs?
Here are some other ideas of regular chairs dressed up:

any wooden chair looks beautiful, we used garden chairs and tall wooden chairs for the bridal table and i just put organza sashes to them
