No. I don’t really like chair covers. I think they should only be used if the chairs are really not acceptable.

In a word: No.

A lot of people don’t like chair covers anymore, but I’ve wanted them since I was little. I never dreamed about any other detail, except for chair covers. What can I say, I’m an odd one :).

The chairs used at our reception location don’t even allow for chair covers (wroght iron with arms).  But in all honesty, unless they were plastic folding chairs, I wouldn’t use them.  Just another added expense. (Who’s going to remember chair covers??)

I’m not using them. It’s not worth the cost imho BUT to each his/her own. I think it does bring a level of elegance in restaurant/country clubs though so it depends on your budget and setting too.

Not important to us but probably because we can’t afford them and our chairs match our colors.

I don’t like them. I lucked out with a venue that provided chivari chairs.

nope. at our reception hall, the tablecloths are included, but not the chair covers. The chairs are decent and dark colored, so I think they will look pretty good if we just use black tablecloths (maybe even look a little more formal?) I saw a picture of it set up like that, and it looked pretty good. so no, not using them, and that is half the reason I went with black tablecloths!

Chair covers were the last of our concerns – not a priority for us.

I wanted to do the chair covers because I honestly do like them but with the extra costs I decided on not doing them and just using the sashes bc I’m using good chairs 🙂

I hate chair covers… unless the chairs are really awful.. like really, REALLY awful.. I’d never use them.  Luckily our venue is throwing in chiavari chairs for no extra cost.

As someone who will probably end up with some mismatched folding chairs- yes I want chair covers! I think they will look quite elegant out on the lawn. If I was using different chairs I wouldn’t. I really wish I had a place to store several hundred mismatched vintage chairs but I keep being told building a barn just to store chairs is impractical LOL.

We’re doing them. I love the look of a white chair cover with a covered sash.
