Ditto, I’m not a fan of chair covers. People will be sitting in the chairs for most of the evening anyway. And the covers always remind me of those dustcloths you see over furniture in old, abandoned houses. They draw the eye, rather than let the eye skim over the chairs, which they’d do if the chairs are burgundy or some other dark color.

I’m looking into Chair Covers for my wedding.  I really dislike the chairs that my venue uses but it’s still a toss up on if I should spend the money on them or not?

Kristin25 – Did you end up using Chair Covers?

What is a good price and what is over priced when it comes to chair covers? 

Anyone else have anything to say about Chair and Table linens?

Chair covers at the beginning were something that we were thinking of but figured we couldnt afford. So I started bargin hunting and didnt find anything good. So I checked out the chairs at the reception site and they reminded me of a business conference so I had to bite the bullet and get chair covers. To be honest I am so excited to see the room. I think that chair covers change the whole feel of a room.

I’m all about the covers. I think they can change the entire feel of a room. I can easily see how it might seem like a waste of money to many people though…

I’m personally not a fan of them.  Aside from making the majority of the area white (if you have white tablecloths especially) I think they’re a pain to sit it because of the way the fabric can move seperately from the chair.  I can see how they work well for some situations, but it’s pretty unlikely I would go for them.

I cant believe a vendor or rental company would make you put them on and take them off yourself. My person delivered set up and took down!

I can’t decide on getting chair covers, I like the chairs at the venue (ivory) but I still can’t decide if I want to use chair covers just so I can use the sashes I have and match my colors (ivory, guava and apple green). I was also thinking of not getting chari covers and use my guava satin napkins. Here is a pic of the venue with the chairs. What do you think?

I wasn’t too thrilled with the idea of chair covers initially, either. Then we started actually venue shopping. The standard chairs are comfortable, but ugly. We can either upgrade to Chavari chairs (which are crazy uncomfortable, IMO) or chair covers of whatever color we want, for the same price. I think we’re going to go with chair covers 🙂

Do you think these chairs look good? I don’t want to spend on chair covers as my budget is limited. I actually like the color of their chairs but just thought maybe with chair covers and sash it will look more elegant. But not sure

vanyrose:  I see your wedding was four years ago, but I have to say if my venue’s chairs were as nice as these, I would have skipped covers! I regret not considering the stupid cost of chair covers when booking my venue because I could have booked a different venue with nicer chairs, even if it had been more expensive because then I’d feel like it was a better value. Mine are comfortable but the legs especially are ugly. They are new, however, and I hear comfortable.

I am having chair covers. The chairs at our venue are super ugly. They are this light pink. Our colors are purple, black and white. Chair covers, set up and take down is costing up about $500.

Buttercup014:  Doesn’t sound bad- the places I’ve gotten gotten quotes charge $150 minimum labor to setup/tear down, plus delivery and pickup. If weekend or night pickup is needed, then it costs extra. Poly chair covers in a bag style with sash attached cost about $4 a chair; satin in the same design cost $6 a chair. It is a lot of money- there are less expensive places to hire, but they also have lower reviews. One day i’m willing to pay for covers and the next day I find myself nixing that in favor of spending on something else.

mtyf:  This comment helped me a lot! Our chairs are burgundy too. I love your comment about the little ghosts lol 🙂 It made me feel more confident in my decision not to do chair covers.. I’ve been really torn between what to do, since our color scheme is purple with lots of fall colors. Then again I guess burgundy is a fall color! I just hope it dosn’t clash with the dark purple tablecloths :/
