    I say leave them.  AT the end of the day no one will care what the chairs look like.  If you really want, you can dress them up with colorful ribbons that you can tie around the top.  But I wouldnt cover them completly with chair covers as that might be too formal a look from what you want.

    And btw, the chairs look really nice.

    Do you sew? You can make little slipcovers or cases for just the top part of the back of the chair.

    You can pick out a fabric pattern that will work with your decor.

    You will see the same chairs in this carnival themed wedding. With the bright colored linens, the chairs are hardly noticeable.

    Are you using any specific colors or just a bunch of them to go with the theme?

    If using a variety, why not wrap sashes around each chair back to break up all the brown? They are cheap to buy and would really brighten things up.

    This is the way we did them for a beach wedding, and used large white starfish in the centers. In your case, I’m sure you could come up with a little something to embellish them.

    I would either leave them or tie some ribbons on them either vertically or horizontally. But honestly, they wouldn’t be bad as is for what you’re going for. I definitely wouldn’t go with tradtional chair covers.

    If you do go with chair covers, I would do the spandex ones. They’re a little more fun and interesting and sort of remind me of a carnival tent? 🙂 Here’s one on a folding chair.
