    people will be in the church max half hour i’m guessing unless it’s Catholic mass etc… And NO one is going to notice your chairs, OR your chair covers, so better to save the money and have no one notice than to spend it and have no one notice 🙂

    I think the chairs are dark enough that it won’t stick out.  I think you should spend that money somewhere else in your wedding!

    I personally hate chair covers – they are rarely ever done properly so that they look great. They tend to take up a lot of space, too.  I just think they look very messy.  I’m much more a fan of chivari chairs.  If this is only for the ceremony though, I wouldn’t waste the money.  Decorate the aisle and get a nice aisle runner and no one’s focus will be on the chairs!

    A lot of places charge you labor for putting the covers on, and that’s on top of the rental fee. A lot of times, it’s cheaper to just rent different chairs! Have you priced that out, too?

    @californiaraisin:  If you’re that worried about it, I got mine on ebay. I got 100 black universal chair covers for about 150. Which I plan on reselling after the wedding.

    I dont think you should get them for the ceremony, but it would look nice during the reception (:

    If the budget allows and you think it’s going to bother you that much, then sure, why not?  But no, I don’t think it’ll look tacky – plus how many pictures are going to be taken from that angle you posted?

    We bought chair covers for our reception… Darling Husband thought I was crazy for spending the money on them, but when he saw how much better the room looked with them, he was glad I spent the money.  So, with that in mind, I don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t get them if you have room in the budget for them. I think they would dress up your venue and make it look completely different from any other wedding that’s held there.

    I wasn’t concerned with chair covers until I started doing some digging and realized how they really add some “class” to a place. We’re not getting married anywhere overly fancy and so I plan to do everything I can to make the wedding as elegant as possible, and adding chair covers will help me achieve that 🙂 

    I vote yes!

    I dont think you need them for the ceremony.  Your mom is right.

    I was not going to get chair covers but fi wants them (plus I think they will spruce up the metal flolding chairs.  I don’t think people care either way but I really like them and fi wants them.
