If they were very bad or very nice, or clashed with the rest of the look, yes I’ve noticed them, but I’m naturally detail oriented. I think that you may not SPECIFICALLY notice the chairs, but you do notice that everything looks “nicer” and “more pulled together” when you have nice chairs, even if you aren’t aware that the chairs are what’s doing it. I went to two weddings in a row that looked ALMOST identical…except one had folding chairs and one had chiavari. The one with chiavari chairs looked SO much better. It just FIT with the formality of it all. If it was an informal wedding I’d just care about comfort, but yes, I do notice if everything else is formal and matching and the chairs stick out like sore thumbs…but that may just be me 🙂

P.s. I don’t know about where you live/your vendors/your venue, but my venue told us (they could have been lying, but we wouldn’t be renting the stuff through them, so it wouldn’t matter to them either way) that chair covers would come out to almost as much/the same as just getting the chiavari chairs

Yes. I have ALWAYS hated banquet chairs with fabric covers, so I’ve noticed everything else: garden chairs, chiavari, just pretty normal chairs, etc.

I think black is a good color…Its the color chairs I will be renting for my wedding. But everyone is diff. To each is own.

Nope, never noticed chairs. And I noticed a centerpiece all of ONCE (when I admired how small and sophisticated it was, rather than a floral monstrosity). This is a good lesson for us. We don’t need to sweat about things NO ONE will notice. And on our wedding day, we will be too busy with our new HUSBANDs, family, and friends, to notice either.

I have noticed a lot at weddings before I was engaged – but im a freak!! haha. I have been in the restaurant indusrty and the front of the house for a long time and I notice details. Its just a pain in the ass bc now im worse!! haha.
But i say that 90% of people wont notice. and if they do — pretty much 99% of THOSE people wont remember them!

Did you personaly experience a wedding where you had to set up and pack down your own table and
I think I would notice rusted breaking chairs too! haha
That last line with the exact price made me giggle.
I love your profile photo! Belle is my favorite!
I must admit though, I do have a tendency to notice those horrible out of date carpets some hotels, banquet halls, movie theatres, etc. have. I can’t stand how ugly and mismatched they look, as if there is nothing in the world that would coordinate with them.
I also forgot to mention that my wedding colors are blue, turquoise, black and white. Fiance and I grew up listening to punk, rock, and metal,a so I couldn’t resist having black in our colors, not that it has that theme or anything. I just like the color.

Nope, I never notice them. I think there are a lot of ways to save money on a wedding, and the chair covers is a good example.

I never noticed them before my own wedding. Every other wedding I had been to had old metal folding chairs and was in a big Catholic church gymnasium. 🙂 I think it is a great way to save money (not getting covers or chair updgrades), however. There are so many other things you can spend that extra money on instead!!

I always notice the chairs. Part of the reason we chose our venue was the chairs are nice. Not chivari. 🙁 But not banquet chairs and not chair covers. But modern clean.
I am abnormal though and obsess over details, as most brides on the Bee seem to do! Don’t give it another thought. No one will pay attention!

Yes, I noticed but I’m an interior designer so I notice everything like that.

I only noticed chairs when they were really ugly (e.g., bad condition) or really pretty (e.g., ghost chairs, chivari chairs). I am sure yours will be fine!

I don’t notice the chairs, per se, but I do think they add to the overall mood that the decor sets. Same thing with centerpieces – I don’t really notice them, but they add to the overall look, which I do notice and remember.

I notice because I’m a design student but do I really care? Not really unless they’re uncomfortable. It’s not going in my home or one of my projects. I don’t think about where I park my butt for a few hours unless they will make said butt (or back) hurt. Nice looking chairs add to the overall look but it’s not priority #1 budget wise.

I rarely noticed them unless they were some funky color. Like the goldish brown pews in our church before its remodel. Althought they didn’t look bad in Aisle shots during the wedding, they did look bad – or some old chairs – or if you ask me worst I ever saw were red banquet chairs when the colors were nothing close to that and once the outdated Orange covered Pews with Orange Carpet.. eek.. and the Bridesmaids were wearing Peach.. it was awful – even the icky Orange carpet and fluffy Long Peach dresses, it was a beautiful day because too people said I do and allowed me to share that special day..
