Hi Bees! This has been on my nerves. What do I do with the chairs pictured below? They have arms, they’re all different colors… GOOD LORD.
Several things: This IS our ceremony site- it’s my SO’s religious site- I love the architecture, but i’m not big on the mismatched chairs with arms… with padded and full backs. Looked at all the “ugly” chair boards and couldn’t find a situation like THIS!!!! Also, I’m on a tiny budget and inviting ~150-200 guests.
My idea: Use the mint-ish ones for the aisle seats since that will be closest to our color scheme (also, make the aisle huge so there’s less of them in photographs). Then maybe arrage the remaining colors in a stripe or chevron pattern?
What do you think? How would you deal with these seats- cover, decorate, arrange, cry, have everyone stand? ;]

OH AND PS. Our colors will be along the lines of mint + lavender or lilac + gold accents, but we both want the ceremony to be plain white/cream decor.

Once people are sitting in them, it won’t be so obvious. Can you attend during a full service and maybe see what it looks like? I don’t think its as bad as you imagine.

@joonbug: I think you have already come up with the best solution.
Anything else is going to cost money, whether it’s other chairs, chair covers (which i hate), slipcovers for just the backs( that you make yourself) etc.
I wouldn’t do a chevron pattern though. I would line the aisle with the mint ones then use the gold, orange and pink in that order.

I agree with PP…put the mint chairs closest to the aisle because they will be the only ones in your photos. It sounds like too much time and effort to cover chairs that will be only be used for the ceremony.

Yea I would just try and use the mint ones on the outside edges and aisle 😉

Looking at the far left, am I seeing cream chairs? If so, I would put those and the mint in the middle and along the back row, and just use the colored chairs where they won’t show in pics.
