    Need pictures… I do hate wrinkled chair covers. I feel like if you’re going to the work & expense of chair covers, it really ruins the look to have them be wrinkled.

    But really depends on the fabric, color, and level of wrinkles.

    I am concerned about this, too. I did not need to rent them for my wedding, but my DSD is getting married in 2.5 weeks, and I think we are going to need to iron not only the chair covers and sashes but also the tablecloths.  She is having 150 guests.

    I would suggest to put 10- 15 universal covers in the clothes dryer for approx 15 minutes.. take them out while still hot,,put one at a time completely over a chair ,put the others over each other on the same chair,,they should be wrinkle free..do this with 10-15 more until they are all done..

    @golddie123:  But, how would the OP have access to both a clothes’ dryer and her venue and chairs simultaneously?

    we did them at home a few days before kept them on the chairs until we went to the venue and transported them in totes,, they were perfect,,hang the sashes or runners on hangers the tableclothes may have press lines on them but take an iron and just give them a quick run at the venue..we had no problem,, approx 175 chair covers…

    @Brielle:  she means just to use chairs like kitchen chairs at home, and then stack multiple chair covers on top of each other on the same chair
