Oh gosh, I so want to help you!  Have you tried posting in the classifieds yet?  Usually there are weddingbee members selling things like that!  Best of luck to you!

Have you checked eBay? You can practically plan an entire wedding from that site for super cheap.

Good luck with your search <3

@cw14383:  Could you try approaching a local convention centre or business and ask for a deal? Or a local college or church to see if they have any you could borrow?

Also I know you want an elegant but cheap wedding but seriously I am sure your guests wouldn’t mind at all if you nixed the chair covers. I am pretty sure that they would be more interested in seeing you and your Fiance get married than if they had a chair cover or not! Just something to think about.

@cw14383:  $2 per chair cover is pretty good from ebay.  is that to buy??  you can turn around and sell them after the wedding.  check with your local rental supply places.

just a thought, if you are on a tight budget why don’t you forgo the chair covers and just go with the essentials.  that would be the smartest thing to do.

@cw14383:  what do they look like?  do you have a pic?  i’m sure they won’t look that bad.

i agree with j_jaye, people are there to see you.  they won’t care about your chairs.

I am very sorry he has cancer. I agree with PPs, I think that you can have a great wedding for cheap, but I think that chair covers are definitely something you can skip- people will not notice chairs. Our chairs were ugly but I really don’t think anyone noticed, since everything else was decorated nicely (and pretty cheaply, also). We got large, cheap rolls of tulle and made bows for all the chairs at the head table and family tables- only cost about $2 for the tulle 🙂 Perhaps something like that could brighten the chairs up with little cost.

@cw14383:  Alternatively can you borrow chairs from somewhere else? Like a school or church etc?

you could buy organza and wrap the chairs rather than covering them
