I absolutely love my reception venue, but the chairs they have are the crappy metal folding chairs…you know…the ones that you used in your church basement with all of the paint chipping off. I would really like to rent chairs, but that’s pretty pricey. I also thought about using chair covers, but I don’t think we can afford that either. My Fiance and I are on a really tight budget (under $7,000). Any suggestions?

How many guests are having? and is 7,000 for decor? or just over all?

It wouldn’t be that expensive to rent chair covers. Why don’t you do some research online at linens vendors? Or maybe you could ask the venue for suggestions. Are you renting table linens? Maybe they can cut you a deal since you’re already using them. Don’t fret, just do some research!

It’s $7000 TOTAL…we’re on an extremely tight budget. 3,000 is going to food, 600 to the reception venue, 600 to DJ, 500 to photographer, Ceremony site is free (my father works for the church), 300 for the cakes, 500 for decorations, flowers are free (FI step-aunt is a florist), 500 for the musicians…so far, that leaves 1000 for all rentals (including all table settings, linens, etc…) It’s tight, but we can do it. It’s nice knowing so many people in the business. We’re friends with our caterer, photographer, DJ, musicians, florist, and we even have a local artist helping design the space…but I just can’t seem to figure out what to do with those chairs. I have looked into renting, but it’s still pretty expensive…and after all is said and done…my stubborn Fiance hates the look of chair covers. GRrrr
