    @HisNightOwl2014:  They aren’t that bad and I ahte chair covers. If it’s important to your FMIL, she can pay the $300.

    I think the color of those chairs would look fine with your color scheme, and the chairs themselves are not really unattractive.  (There definitely are chairs that I would want to cover, but I would not consider yours to be in that category.)

    I think the chairs are fine! They’re definitely not gorgeous, but they’re not bad either.

    agree!! Leave em be.  They aren’t too bad, and they technically go with your colour scheme, plus I’m all about saving for the honeymoon.  Uncovered chairs won’t ruin anyone’s night! I’m doing the same with the ugly chairs at my venue – they are free to show their ugly selves, hahah

    We opted to go without chair covers/bows, too!!   We thought it was silly to waste the money on them.  It was an extra $5 per chair that we saved!

    They’re not the best looking things but I despise chair covers, so I’d leave them as is.

    Personally I think it would look better with chair covers, particularly in photos. But $300 does seem pretty steep for them. If you can source them for cheaper, I would.

    I actually really like those chairs. Of course, my color scheme incorporates mint and gold, so it would look good, but I think it would look great with your blues as well. I would DEFINITELY put that money elsewhere. Chair covers would not be an improvement in this case.

    Nobody gives a crap about how pretty the chair looks! The chairs are not BEAUTIFUL, but are nice for a wedding, not torn, or yellow/orange. They fit with your color scheme, people do not care how fancy the chair looks as long as they have a seat. If the chairs were super outdated, like bright yellow, or all torn, then I said cover them. This is not the case, use that extra money for your honeymoon. If your MIL hates them that much, she can pay to cover them. I’m not covering my chairs, they are nice enough, and do the job intended, for people to sit, and still look nice for photos. Your all good girl. Good luck with your final decison.
