    We’re not using them. Our chairs are just basic white folding chairs and I’m fine with them. I also think chair covers look a little odd. One of the venues we looked at had these horrible ugly-shade-of-green upholstered chairs, and my aversion to both their chairs and chair covers led to us looking for a different venue 🙂

    We aren’t using them. We’re having a small wedding of 55 people and even with that amount of people, it was already looking like $300. It just seemed like an unnecessary cost and plus, who is going to remember the chairs anyway?

    No, we’re not using them either. If the budget allows, i may be renting the all-mighty-chiavari-chairs. I’m a sucker i know. Embarassed

    If not then we will be using the venue chairs (with no covers)… i can’t even remember what color they are.

    Yes, we rented out chair covers only because the chairs were so beat up that they looked like they were created the same time the building was over 100 years ago. I was hoping to not have had to use them as it was an unneeded expense for our wedding. I am glad I did get them because it brought the decor together.

    I didn’t want to from the start, I don’t like the look of them and it’s just an extra expense.  My Fiance on the other hand kept telling me he really really wanted to use them.  I would have considered it if the chairs were ugly, but the chairs are actually really pretty, so at this point it’s just an extra expense that we’re not going to do.

    We are.  Our venues chairs are a deep maroon.  Wouldn’t really fit with my table settings.  And I don’t think they are too outrageously priced.

    We are using them but only because they’re included in our wedding package.  Otherwise I think they are a little silly and uncomfortable.  I actually would rather have a plain chair!

    we didn’t use them. i’m not a fan of chair covers, plus after doing the math it was cheaper to rent white wood chairs which are pretty on their own rather then to rent chairs and chair covers.

    We are using them for our outdoor ceremony because the venue has the ugly metal folding chairs, but they provide the covers & have lots of different color sashes we can choose from to match our colors.

    I think chair covers transform the overall look of the venue more than anything else…

    We are using chair covers. It’s the one thing my mom insisted on because we didn’t use them for my sisters wedding and she really regreted it. I don’t mind either way, but our wedding will be in a tent so the chair covers will make it look a little more elegant. Also, my table linens are ivory and the chairs are white, so it brought the look together.

    We are using chair covers as well. The only reason is because the reception hall has hideous dark purple chairs and our colors are deep red and pale gold… yeah… they look awful together!

    we are not– we are having a casual beach wedding and don’t feel chair covers are needed.
