I am working on a red wedding… does anybody have any idea on how to make a red wedding work without chivari chairs?
Every picture I see from red weddings have chivari chairs, which I think softens the look.
However, I already convinced myself that chivari chairs are not in my budget (which was very difficult), so I want to make the red work, but I am not sure how. Can you please give me some ideas, pic, anything…..
I initially thought of something like the attachment with the chair cover, but many of my friends think it looks like you are having dinner on valentines day..the wedding is in may.
The chair cover is ivory as well as the table cover; the reception hall does not have white chair covers…not sure why!

What about the gold chivari chairs? They are more elegant than the others (IMO)

Oh.. I will love to be able to afford chivari chairs, but I cannot.
I need ideas without the chivari chairs

I still suggest that you try to incorporate the gold in the decor to break up the red and ivory by itself. I think it’d take it from V-Day themed to elegant, especially if the red is a little darker.

Thanks for the plug Mermaid!
We will have regular chairs with white chair covers and chair sashes. Most of the red we are doing we are brining in with lighting (red and orange uplighting and red paper lanterns hung over each table).
Lighting can really help to make an impact, and it isnt’ terribly expensive. Bring in red accents with charger plates or napkins, red paper goods or red centerpieces. I wouldn’t do red table linens unless you are doing white (or another accent color) heavily everywhere else to help balance it out.
PM if you need help!
