    Will the room be darker or well lit? If well lit, the chairs kindof expand your color scheme to buttercup,teal, and red…if that is NOT what you want and can make room in the budget, I’d probably get the covers.

    Ehh…the chairs def. aren’t going to compliment your color scheme, but $750 AHHH! I’ll look past the chairs! Plus people will be sitting in them. So hopefully YOU as a Bride wont notice as much!

    are you renting the chair covers or buying? 750 seems like a lot! I had the same debate in my mind for the longest time and then thankfully my sister in law bought some chair covers for her younger brothers wedding and offered to let me borrow them.  If you can dim the lights I wouldnt worry about the chairs they really arent ugly. My chairs are ulgy brown metal folding chairs with peeling paint!

    We rented chivarri chars for that amount. See if you really want a cover, you sould just see how much it would be to rent some nice chairs.

    Its not worth $750.  Your guests will never remember about the chairs.  They will remember the food and the celebration.  Forego the chairs.

    I opted for chair covers. I think they give s finished look. And yes i think guests will notice the decor.

    i too think guests notice the decor. it doesn’t look right to have a beautiful venue with ugly chairs.

    I voted for the chair covers but think you should only do it if you have the funds for it.  I’m not a supporter of going in debt for a party–but if you can afford it then it definately looks better.

    Howerver–I saw you are Asian and red is good luck so if you can incorporate a bit of red into your color scheme then leave the chairs!

    Someone posted that they got 100+ chair covers from Ebay for less than $200 a few months ago.

    Check around. I know you can definitely buy some for cheaper and regain some of your loss by selling them when you’re done…
