Okay, My Fi and I both agreed we want chair covers for the chairs at our wedding. Can anyone tell me if it would be cheaper to make them or buy them?
If its cheaper to make them, does anyone know how?
And if its cheaper to buy them does anyone know where to get a good deal?

@busybride215: Chair covers for the wedding ? If for the wedding… the cheapest is to rent them Some places rent them at $1.00 per piece.

Im buying mine from http://www.linentablecloth.com
im getting the satin universal ones, they cost $2.19 each.. which is ALOT cheaper than rental places around here wanted.. $4 per chair!
I will most likely buy tablecloths from there as well.

I would think renting would be less – but depending on how the chairs look, the cheaper alternative would be to dress them up with a chair sash/bow & make those.

It depends on your area. In my area. it would’ve been cheaper to purchase chaircovers than to rent. Companies charge $3-4 per cover there. I think the cheapest I saw was $2.50. The problem with DIY is that you would need someone to setup and then remove them. If they’re wrinkled, then you would need to iron them yourselves. If you rent, the linen company should take care of all that for you. If you have a small wedding, it won’t be a problem to DIY.
A lot of people have used linentablecloth.com as PP mentioned. You can also try cvlinens.com. They have the slip on chaircovers for $1.95 and self-tie for $2.19.

@AnnieAAA: We definately want chair covers! The chairs our reception hall has (which will be the same chairs used for our ceremony) are purple and pink! The cheapest ones i’ve seen to buy were around 1.75/cover. I guess I wasn’t sure what a reasonable price was, but i guess that’s a pretty good deal considering what some of you gals are paying!

i was looking at everything I needed yesterday.
For 4 96″ round ivory table covers, 3 8 foot banquet table covers, 32 black chair covers, 14 ivory chair covers, 40 ivory chairbows & 20 black chair blows, and 60 fuscia napkins, the total was just over $200, that was a pretty good deal I think [to purchase]. At most of the local rent places they wanted double that.
