Is there a way you could buy wholesale, or even makeyour own seat pads. Or you could simply decorat them by tying a starfish on the back, or something beachy. I will look for some pictures for you!!

Get ribbon in the color(s) theme of your wedding. I would do an “over, under, over, under” effect through the back of the chairs so it becomes a basket weave effect. I think that would look lovely. You could even alternate colors and then finish with a bow at the bottom of the back of the chair. So that way the chair looks colorful and different from the back and the front with a interesting pattern. Hope that helps!

I agree with the basket weave effect, which can give you an “anchor”  to hold the flower cone.

@bride17458: No way! Go for beachy if that is what you want. You only get married in the Keys once!

I think you should go with beachy if you want to be beachy. 🙂 You could be beachy in the mountains if you wanted to be!

I love the basket weave idea.

Certainly you can do only the aisle chairs. That would speed up the time needed to tidy up after the ceremony.

You could also do shepherd’s hooks with flowers, mason jars etc to line the aisle.The advantage to this is that they could be taken to the reception venue and also used there.


Or flowers on the aisle chairs:

 or lanterns:

or nothing!

I’m not sure if I’d bother worrying about or doing anything with the plain chairs. It takes time to set them up plus de-decorate them,so it’s just one more thing to do. You could decorate just the very last row straight across and leave the rest simple. That’s what we did for my daughter’s beach wedding. Not sure if it would work on those chairs,tho. I’ll find a picture so you can see. What we did was use turquoise organza chair ties doubled over and tied in the center with large white starfish with large rhinestones in the center. Easy and looked great. I think we had 10 chairs across with a center aisle.
