It depends on the chair… But generally unneccessary.

I say unecessary. I’m not doing them and we have padded folding chairs. I don’t really like the look of covers anyway on folding chairs, and I don’t think it is worth the $200-$300 we have been quoted. I mean…ugly padded chair, or ugly padded chair covered with a cover? I’d rather just not pay the money. 

I may order chair sashes though and put them on the chairs.

I agree it depends on the chair, but in my opinion unnecessary 9 times out of 10.

I would say it depends on the chairs…our venue has very ugly red padded banquet chairs…there is no way I was going to be looking at that all night..so for me, chair covers are an inexpensive fix…renting different chairs would have cost me more

They do make a nice difference, especially with the bow tied around it.

Personally, I don’t like the look, and they’re totally unnecessary unless you have truly hideous chairs. There are threads on here asking brides what they remembered/ loved most about their wedding- I don’t remember a single one raving about the chair covers. There are similar posts asking what we noticed/ remembered/ liked most about weddings we’ve attended. Again, chair covers (even decor in general) don’t make that much of an impression on most guests.

I do not like the look of chair covers however my wedding is red/black/white and the chairs provided were a pale pink which would’ve looked awful with all the red and black. I almost considered changing my whole color scheme to ivory/pinks so I wouldn’t have to use chair covers because I don’t like chair covers. Oh well.

Personally, I think the covers/bows are awful looking, but I understand if the venue has ugly chairs… I don’t plan on having them at all! :]

I think it really depends. If the chairs are ugly or clash with the rest of the decor, you kind of have to cover that.

It really depends.  We used a nontraditional wedding venue (private club) in which the chairs were not only beat up but mismatching (some banquet, some folding).  So the chair covers gave it a more cohesive look.  However, 90% of the time I’d consider it unnecessary.

It depends on the chairs. I personally hate the way chair covers look, but I’d take a chair cover over an ugly chair. We actually rented chairs for our reception because the chairs were ugly.

I agree that it depends on the chairs, but unless the chairs are REALLY ugly, then I think you can get away with nothing or with just bows (or some other decoration.) We’ll be going with bows, now just trying to figure out how to tie them best on the chairs lol. I should also mention, I got 199 navy blue chair bows for only $75 from a friends’ sister’s wedding. If I had to buy my own chair bows for more expensive, I would just be going without!!

Agree with the others. It depends on the chair. My problem is that my venue’s chairs are gold and green, and my colour scheme is white and blue. So they will simply have to be covered. Also, if the chairs are completely disgusting, then it’s probably worth it.
