i’m leaving them as is. i don’t really like the look of chair covers and don’t want to spend the extra money on them, and i think just having a sash draws even more attention to the ugly banquet chair.

I’m going to because our venue provides you with white or black ones for free. I would have attempted to fit them into the budget if they weren’t included, though. What color are your chairs? Ours are an ugly maroon color 😛

We did.

We did as there wasn’t much choice. They were a hideous blue shade and the linens were turquoise. No sashes…just plain and they looked much better.

@ItWasntMe: I love your turquoise linens!  I am thinking of using that same color but can’t decide if I want to use only white tablecloth with white chair covers and turquoise sashes, or how you did it.  By The Way, did you make those seashell table numbers?  They are gorgeous!

I would cover up the chairs, unless the chairs match your color scheme.  I am planning on using chair covers as well.

Mine were a forest green color.  Definitely covered them.  I used a white chair cover like the first pic above with a royal blue sash.  I think it can make a huge difference!

Cover them for sure!  Uncovered banquet chairs are ugly.  Chair covers steps it up a notch instantly.

If you can afford it, then I’d cover them.  It just looks more complete and matching when you do.  To me, the whole feel of the venue in the before and afters of @SapphireSun:‘s venue changed with the matching linens.

However, it’s not such a big deal if you don’t cover them.  We just couldn’t afford it, so we left our chairs alone.  Oh, and I agree that the sash without the cover looks a little funny.

We are covering our chairs. The chairs are a terrible dusty rose color and not in the best shape. But I think even if they were nice chairs I would put covers on them. I love the look I find it just finishes everything off !

I REALLY want to cover our chairs.  They’re this horrible shade of green and gold.  Yuck!  my Dad and I are going back and forth about it, though.  He said “Who the hell is going to pay attention to the chairs?” and sort of flipped when I told him chair covers are $3.50 apiece.  Ugh!  So frustrating.

I really want to, but not sure if I can afford it. When we were just browsing our venue, one of the wait staff came up to my family and recommended it, saying it really dresses up the space. I’ve seen plenty of weddings without and would never criticize them for their decision to not have them.

I just had to cover ours because I really loved the finished appearance.  Of course, I hadn’t originally budgeted for them, but I decided to make a couple of “sacrifices” to save about $600 for 175 chairs.  I cut out Starbucks stops and also picked up an extra student to tutor over the summer prior to the wedding.  It was well worth it!

We didnt and I think it looked fine – I dont like the look of chair covers though. If I could have afforded chivari then I would have gone that route
