    I don’t think it would be tacky but might not fit in with the outdoorsy beach theme as much. If you’re going to spend money on sashes/covers anyway, why not just go with the wooden ones? I think it would look fine to have wooden chairs with nothing on them. The outdoor view is the real draw anyway, right? 🙂

    I agree with the above poster. Save your chair cover/sash money and just get the nicer chairs. THe plastic folding chairs are quite flimsy, too….i’d spring for the better chair and save the setup costs (even if you buy the covers, most places will charge  labor fee to assemble it all!)

    I don’t think it would be tacky either, but if you are on a tight budget, for a beach wedding I would just do the sash, if I were you. For me, I would skip both and put the money elsewhere. White folding chairs look really nice for a beach wedding with nothing on them.

    Personally, I prefer the wooden ones, so that combined with avoiding the hassle of buying/selling/setting up sashes would probably be worth the extra $125 to me. Or I’d just do the plain white folding chairs sans cover and save even more (which is actually what I’m doing).

    ETA: Actually, I probably wouldn’t do any chairs on the beach. The skinny legs of the chairs will just sink into the sand, making the chairs likely to tip over. If the white folding chairs have 2 U shaped pieces instead of 4 legs, that would be better, but I’d still probably skip chairs on sand,

    Our wedding is on the beach and our venue does the chair covers. We really didn’t like how it looked, and are opting to go with the white plastic folding chairs. The full chair covers (we think) look really out of place outside. I dont even know if we’ll do sashes, but it’s a good idea!
