I am trying to decide what to do with our wedding reception room in terms of decoration – and whenever or not we need to have chair covers!
The room looked like the first pic when we viewed it, and I stupidly took this to mean that it would include the chair covers (daft mistake). Our wedding colours are yellowy gold and dark purple, so the yellow gold sashes on here was perfect! However, the hotel has now told me that chair covers are £5 per chair (UK wedding) and we have 130 guests! So no chair covers at that price.
The carpet is a blue/yellow colour and they have just sent me a pic of the chairs without a cover. The red chair!
I am stuck what to do for decoration now – we don’t have a big budget for this at all, and our centrepiece plan is to go for sunflowers in a tall vase with lavender or some other purple flower. I haven’t thought much beyond that! White table linen is included, but nothing else.
Any ideas on what I can do with this? Thanks ladies!

Sorry to hear that you weren’t aware of the price for the chair covers. Does your venue allow other vendors to come in? Maybe you could find a vendor that would do it for cheaper. My vendor wanted $5 per cover/sash and I found an outside vendor that would do it for $3. Saved me about $400!

Agree with the PP. Shop for chair covers! I’m not sure what prices are like in the UK, but even here in San Francisco I was able to find them for as low as $2. It just really takes some digging and negotiation!

i have the same problem but have found that in the US, you can rent nice fancy chairs for $2.00 each! Cheaper than getting the chair covers. If you need to keep chair covers, do look at all your UK wedding sites because there are so many vendors you may find them cheap / and don’t forget the wedding classifieds here. Lots of brides purchase and will sell cheap after their wedding.

Hi there! As crazy as this sounds, consider buying the chair covers. My mother shopped around for linens, chair covers, and sashes and found that vendors were charging more than what you can actually purchase them for! I’ll post the site that she actually ordered from. We are very pleased with with quality of the products. The chair covers are $2.38 and sashes start at .99! Even better, we plan to resell them on ebay when we’re done so in the end, we won’t have spent much at all. Hope this helps:
