So here is a picture from my venue’s website. My theme is Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I want a classic elegant look for the reception. So do I cover the chairs? The venue charges $2 a cover and I just can’t see spending that, but will they look awful without? Should I put sashes on them or leave them be? I wlll be doing linens on the table, btw. I just don’t know about chairs. People will put their butt on them! I’d rather splurge on food.

@BreakfastAtHollys: splurge on food! I got chair covers (my mother-in-law surprised me with them) but I couldn’t have cared less. No one will notice the chairs and I think they’re easier to sit on when they don’t have covers! And people will most definitely remember the food.

@BreakfastAtHollys: What are your colors? Unless black is a color you love and want it to be a huge part of your wedding, cover them, they really stand out, and in a graduation party way. Or at least a sash, I’m just not liking those chairs as is in black. Can you DIY and save on the $2? Or have them take off the chair rental and rent your own that are more upscale?

@BreakfastAtHollys: Would the money be spent better elsewhere? Honestly, I wouldnt be too worried about it, theyre basic black from the looks of it and that will go with any color scheme you might have in mind.
if the chairs were a hideous color that would clash with your decor, than I would say cover them, but I dont find them offensive. Once guests are seated you wont even notice! A sash(if cheaper) could be a good compromise =)

The chairs are fine. They are neutral black. It goes with everything.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s decor is traditionally Tiffany Blue, white and BLACK.

Tie Tiffany blue bows to the chairs as they are to spruce them up a bit!

don’t bother! black is neutral and no one really cares about the chairs anyway haha…the money is better spent on something else (food, etc)

@BreakfastAtHollys: Those chairs I would cover. It is usually more financially feasable to actually purchase the covers and then resell them with a small loss (less then $2 a cover). Try ebay.
The only other thing I would do if not covering them is to make the table stand out more, esp if you want the upscale look.

@BreakfastAtHollys: Don’t cover them, black will definitely go with your theme. A tiffany blue sash would be gorgeous, and add to your theme, but youre fine without it. No one notices the chairs.

@BreakfastAtHollys: Since black is one of your colors (some people do the Tiff theme loosely and just do the blue and white or add their own third color), I would say leave the chairs as is. But adding a Tiff blue bow would be cute if you swing it financially!

I think they’re fine–Especially since one of your colors is black!
