I think they actually make bench covers – so you could try and find some of those.  If not, I would cut up outdoor table clothes and staple/tape/clip them to the underside of the bench.

maybe rent some bench cushions?

like these:

I’ve never been a fan of wooden benches… my ass gets too numb too quickly Embarassed… So this would get my vote purely from a comfort perspective 🙂

id cover them in long sheets of tulle and then tied on the corners … so that way you cant see the ickyness and the tulle flowing in the wind will look romantic

sort of like the wood seats here :

You can buy inexpensive sheets at K Mart etc . Depending on the size of the sheet you may be able to split them down the middle . Even a twin sheet split lengthwise will cover the top and hang 7″ down each side on 2 benches. A Queen size sheet can be cut crosswise to cover 3 benches, so it depends on the price which will end up to tbe the best buy. Length is not a problem- all of them will be long enough

Tie a rock in each corner to keep them from blowing in the breeze.

To increase the comfort factor, you can lay down a sheet of foam before you add the sheet. This saves && time, not having to sew the seat pads.

You can either make white long fabric covered seat pads. Or, add individual seat pillows/pads (like below) or cover the whole top of the bench in fabric (below.)

This has so much potential!  I was going to suggest seat covers like others have above!

Table runners would work as well and can be found in every shade under the sun–and can be rented for a pretty reasonable price.  Lace would look pretty, but not necessarily be cost effective.  I’m in the minority, because I think tulle could look tacky…

It’s hard to mentally picture the icky green, but tempering it with one of yur colors and maybe making sure there is some green (not necessarily the same shade) incorporated into the indoor decor–even if it is just the leaves or stems of the florals.

Good luck!

I would avoid plastic disposable table cloths.  They may make some noises while people are sitting.  And tulle may not be comfortable to sit on.  also if you go with the sheet idea which sounds great you may want to put rubber shelf liner down first it will soften the bench and it will also prevent the sheet from sliding .
