Our colors are navy blue and pink. We will be doing the tall pink rose centerpieces, with navy napkins on an ivory tablecloths. I am anal about every detail of this wedding and these chairs have annoyed me from the beginning. It will cost us roughly $800 to cover 300 chairs. Yikes! Would you bite the bullet?

Is that the price to rent them through your venue or could you buy covers and bring them in? You can sometimes find them for $1 each online.
I think those chairs are actually neutral enough that you’ll be fine, but if you just want chair covers, I totally understand because I did too :).

I personally don’t like chair covers. I think it is too much fabric everywhere! Have you looked into the price of renting chairs? If not i really don’t think it will look bad with the chairs in the pic.

I would not bother. Once your guests are in their seats you will not see the chairs at all.
If you want some pics of your reception decor just pull the chairs away from a few of the tables for the photographer.
To be honest, I also have to say that I think most chair covers and sashes make the situation worse not better.

We have the same colors!! I don’t think the chairs are terrible, although I’m not a fan of chair covers. I thinkyou’re tall centerpieces would also help to hide them in pics. That is alot of money that could be better spent elsewhere. (more flowers?)

I would have to provide the covers myself, I haven’t been able to find anything cheaper than $2. And I agree, I don’t even like chair covers! I’d love some beautiful chiavari (spelling?) chairs, but they just will not be in budget for us due to our large guest list. Thanks for your opinions, most of my family think I’m crazy to even think about paying money to cover them!

I think the chairs are nice, I wouldn’t bother going to all the expense of getting covers from them.

If your reception is at night and the lights are dimmed you wont even be able to see the color. I wouldn’t worry about it.

I think they’re neutral enough to go with them.

Our reception will begin at 6:30 and it will be dark by 8:00. I guess I’m worried about that “first impression” when walking into the room after the ceremony… I’m putting so much work into all the others details, I don’t want anything to ruin it, ya know?

They are pretty chairs, imo. Have you considered incorporating some neutral tones into your wedding theme? That might make the chairs blend in a little better.

I wouldn’t. I think they are fine plus, like others have said, you probably won’t see them once everyone sits down.

No don’t bother! Those chairs look pretty nice and the color is neutral so I think $800 could be spent elsewhere.

Looks like we’re leaning towards no chair covers now! Thanks everyone…
