    The chair looks perfectly fine to me. I don’t think the covers add anything special at all, quite the opposite. I’m not sure why your photog has such an issue with them; they’re pretty nice chairs for something that comes with the venue. Unless you think the pattern on the back is going to detract from your overall look, I’d leave them as-is.

    Personally I really dislike chair covers. I think the chairs themselves are nice and I think they would be perfect with a sash.

    Plus saving that $$ for something else would be great too.

    @Nicoley1985: I don’t think the chairs are bad at all!  Why not just work on your table setting and see if it would work on its own, with the chairs as they are?  You can always decide about them later.

    I would leave the chairs as is. I think they are gorgeous.

    I agree with the other ladies, the chairs look good alone.

    I like the chairs as-is. I am not a fan of the silk covers, at all.

    I voted for just add the sash, but I think I would even consider just leaving them alone. Those are really nice chairs!

    I think you need another option in the poll – I think the chairs look great as they are, I wouldn’t add a sash, to be honest I think a sash on a bare chair would look a bit odd. I say get your pops of colors from the napkins and centerpieces. They’re pretty chairs, leave them be!

    As a guest, I’m not a fan of covers and sashes, I would much prefer a chair without a slippery cover or a sash that is going to fall off. I’m with the other ladies – save your money and use the chair on its own!

    i would just leave the chairs.  honestly when the room is filled no one will notice the chairs.  and plus they are perfectly fine.  i vote no cover or sash.  if i were you, i wouldn’t even waste money on renting chivaris.

    Don’t add a sash or a chair cover. Save the money and leave the chairs the way they are. Use the money on something else other than the chairs.

    i think the chair covers look weird – plus once people are seated and they start putting their jackets/purses over them i dont think it really matters to be honest

    of the two chairs shown, i prefer the uncovered chair

    I can’t stand my venue’s chairs, so I have to choose whether to upgrade to chavari chairs, or cover+sash. It’s the same price either way, and I personally think chavari chairs are SO uncomfortable, so we’ll be going the cover+sash route.

    I completely understand how some wouldn’t like the look of the cover though, but think the sash along might look odd. You’re totally fine with your chairs being nekkid if you want to save some moolah, they look good alone 😀

    Im in the same situation only difference the chiars they provide are so ugly that I either have to use chair covers, which I hate or rent chavari chairs which are $11.  But I think your chairs are fine without the chair covers and you said the gold would match your color scheme so I say go for it.
