I am not an authority on this subject by any means but now that you say something, it does seem that they are shown less and less.  If you like them and really want them, then I say keep them and enjoy them!  But if they are not a “must have” item for you, then I don’t think not having them would be a big deal, nor do I think your guests would notice that they aren’t there.

So long as there are ugly seats at reception halls, seat covers will be in style.

I never know what’s in style. I do know that the chairs at our venue are kinda crappy and we are getting chair covers for a serious discount… so for my wedding, they are totally in style. 😉

I think it depends on the chairs. If they are not totally hideous, I wouldn’t worry too much about seat covers, after all they’ll be largely covered by people sitting–and they get all messy looking once people stand up.

I’ve never seen them at weddings I’ve attended, but that’s probably because the couple either had a venue with nice chairs, or it was a budget wedding with less than attractive chairs and there was no money for them.

Personally, I think they can be very tastefully done, but I prefer the look of a chair by itself, IMO.

The banquet chairs at my venue are hideous so whether or not they are, I’ll be using them!

This is just my humble opinion, but I want to VOMIT at the sight of chaircovers. I seriously hate them with a passion. And then people add those god-awful bows and such?? Gross. Again, just my opinion =)

We are doing them because the chairs at my venue look like this:

They don’t look too bad in this image, but I think when we have our ivory tablecloths on the table, they will really stand out and look ugly. So we’re covering them up. I wish we could have afforded the chiavari chairs, but they are so expensive.

We are doing chair covers ourself because our chairs are horriable. But there is actually a place in our town where we can by a huge roll of fabric for 150.00 and we will have to put them together ourselves but it is worth it. Our chairs are the metal brown fold up and I just don’t wamt that.

I dont think there’s such a thing as an ugly chair – besides one that is dirty/falling apart/etc….but those chair covers with the huge tulle bows on the back? HURL.

Ha, @katiedee: and @R.Elliott:‘s comments made me laugh. When we were picking out our linens at the catering place, my Fiance looked like he wanted to hurl when looking at the chair ties that were tied in bows. I found an image of a more squared-off, obi-looking knot, and he was much happier about that, lol!
