Do you have a pic? My gut is telling me if its square chairs with round chair covers it would bother me, but it sounds like the only issue is they’re a little short. A pic would be fantastic. I’m also very detailed so I may be a bad person to answer because I would want the square ones.

Well good news is you have several options… 

Option 1: If you want to spend just a little extra love you can take your accent color and have someone (who knows and loves to sew) Sew a band of color around the bottoms. or Have the same taylor/seamstress sew on a new back pannel or pleat. (Depending on difficulty)

Options 2: Lay some cut peices of black cotton fabric on the back of the chair to cover up the space that will be seen and then place the cover over the chair. (or depending on the color of chairs use Gaffers tape on the feet so they blend in. Gaffers tape is a strong cotton tape designed to hold wires and cords to floors and walls without any residue)

Option 3: Add a nice sash and have enough on the table to keep people occupied. or have the tables close enough together they won’t really be able to see them. (Most times people overlook the small things when the main picture is breath taking)

Option 4: See if the company you bought them from will exchange the un-used seat covers, or check with a local event supply company and see if they if they will give you a Trade or discount if you Trade or sell them your seat covers.

Option 5: Lighting, If you can control your lighting, Who doesn’t love a beautifully lit room. Take the lights down a couple notches and create a mood with candles and well positioned spots, strings of globle lights, or laterns.

Just remember, This is your big day, don’t let a 2 inch gap ruin it for you. People are coming to see you, not how long your table or chair covers are. Enjoy this moment and don’t sweat the small stuff. 

Cheers and Congrats!
