My wedding venue requires us to use their chairs. They are light grey, padded metal folding chairs. And they aren’t terrible. White would have been better, but the grey isn’t bad.
My quandry is that I would like to do something to dress them up. However, I don’t want to use chair covers. All of the ideas I have read, involve draping the chair backs with Tulle. Which I really really don’t want to use.
My wedding is a rose and olive affair, with lots of dot swiss, grograin and vintage styling.
Any non tulley suggestions?

you could used satin bows, or tie multicolored ribbon to the back

Why do you not care for chair covers? Personally, if I like super hated the chairs I’d probably do what I could to draw attention away from them. So I wouldn’t put anything on them, but have really pretty linens and centerpieces.

I find that chair covers really overwelm a space with too much fabric. I’ve seen them used to good effect occasionally, but more often than not, I’m not impressed with them.
My centerpieces are groupings of vintage glass bottles in various sizes with spray roses and greenery.

One of the extreme stresses in my wedding planning was my venue also forced us to use their ugly metal blue chairs (my decorations were ivory and purple). I didn’t want to spend $200-300 on chair covers, but seeing those ugly chairs in the undecorated room made me want to cry. About a week before the wedding, I got over it and decided to not waste my money. Fast forward to the wedding and not one person (including myself) noticed those chairs. Once the room is decorated and people are actually sitting, you will not notice them. My advice is to not waste your money if you don’t have to.
