Do you have a photo of your venue without chair covers? If you tried to post it- it didn’t show up.

Chair covers! It makes a big difference. What time is the reception and what’s the lighting like? If it’s more day time like first pick then covers..if it’s later in the day then you want covers.

Personally, I would get the chair covers for those chairs. My venue has nicer chairs, so I am only getting sashes for the chairs. If those chairs go with your overall look, then maybe just a sash.

The room is great, but covers would look nice on those chairs. Personally, I hate covers it makes it hard to move the chair back when you want to get up and if there isn’t space that’s a problem lol

I don’t really care for covers either, but with your more formal reception, I would get the covers or check into some different chairs; whichever would cost less.

Hmmm that’s a tough call. We’re doing the garden chairs at $2/per (chiavari or whatever is fancy these days) because it’s waaay cheaper than covers. I think I would look into that, but the black chairs are no fun. :o( I hate to be a downer.

I would abe highly upset if someone covered the cover ha With your venue moving chairs back to get up doesn’t look like a problem. The chairs look like they would slide across the floor easily, but I definitely would be sliding in the chair ha I’m uncoordinated 🙁

IMO, they’re totally fine. I have been going through this same dilmma myself. But really, do you think anyone is going to look back at your wedding and think it wasn’t nice because of the chairs?  The only reason I even notice it is because I am wedding concious because I am PLANNING my wedding. Don’t let it eat at you, put your money towards something more substantial!

@youreastonefoxx has a very good point, it’s likely that only you and wedding-stalker people will notice. No one else reads nearly the amount of blogs about wedding trends and all whatnot. So nothing to get worked up about.

I wouldn’t get chair covers.  To me, it’s an unnecessary expense and a pain in the butt.
