    @TaurianDoll:  Ask yourself this – why would you upgrade the chairs. Deep-down – do you need these special chairs (at extra cost)?

    The other chairs look great. Your ceremony sounds beautiful 🙂

    Chuppahs are expensive. If you’re not Jewish, don’t waste your money. Just do a simple arch with some flowers. Also, you’ve got a lot going on with the aisle decor, just pick one idea and stick to it. I would upgrade the chairs.

    I would go with just a really nice aisle runner instead of petals, the carpet in the room is pretty busy and the just plain aisle runner would make more of a statement IMO

    I wouldn’t upgrade the chairs, those are really nice. And I’m a chair snob. I spent 15 minutes this morning looking up photos from my venue and worrying about how the chairs will look COVERED (because of their shape). Those are great chairs though.

    I would upgrade the chairs. It really dies make an aesthetic difference. The ones in your picture are old, dated, and just blah. I also really like the petals on the edges of the aisle. A subtle pop of color and it brings your eye to the center.

    I would personally upgrade if it is in your budget.

    @TaurianDoll:  I’d either upgrade the chairs, or add some decorations on the edges of the aisle. Your ideas look very pretty, though! If you wanted to hang pomianders, it’s going to be hard with the chairs you have currently, since they have a curved top. 

    How long is your ceremony? How much is the chair rental. Part of me is overly-practical and says why spend $7+ per chair for a 15-20 minute ceremony?

    @TaurianDoll:  so I say upgrade the chairs, and then add some decor that makes it feel wedding-y. I love the petal idea you had above, but I think you should add something with a little more height down the aisle, like pomianders hanging from chairs, and maybe alternating them with tall vases (like 3′ high) with floating candles, or perhaps tall candle holders, in a style that fits with your theme.

    What are your wedding colors?  Do they blend with the colors in the room or not. 

    If the colors blend then I would leave the chairs and concentrate on flowers and such.

    I think an isle runner (plain) and then maybe some sort of hanging decoration, you may need to figure out how to do that would be lovely.


    If your colors don’t blend with the space, then I would upgrade the chairs, get an isle runner and do the petals, and bring your colors more into the space.  But not worry as much about the hanging stuff, you don’t want it to be busy, but the reason for the changes is to make the room more neutral and bring the attention to your colors, thus chairs that don’t blend in but go with your color scheme would help the carpet disappear more.
