are you having programs? you could put a sea shell on the program on each seat. Or just a flower.

We got married a few months ago, honestly, no one will notice if the chairs are decorated of not.

Or decorate fans with your programs, and either place them on eac seat or hang them from the seats! 

I also agree with TallBride — it’s such a minor detail!  Good luck, though, with your decision!

Chair sashes are a great option.  Or some sort of idea using ribbon/organza.  save-on-crafts.com has some options!

Put the programs in the seats, and don’t worry about decorating the chairs, they’ll be fine. Just make the aisle pretty with some tule and petals!

I agree, white folding chairs look pretty nice.  Use a sea shell or a fan program.  along the aisle use torches, or flowers to decorate.

I second what others have said, white wooden chairs are pretty & don’t really need decoration, you could add pomanders having from the chairs. Or….and I can’t find the picture…. but a bride that had a beach wedding lined the isle with tall square vases that were each filled with sand and then put a tall white candle inside each one, it was SO BEAUTIFUL!!

I’m in the same situation – white metal chairs where the top of the back is rounded on the edges so…you can’t really hang anything from them at all

You could get some inexpensive shepherd’s hooks, and hang some flowers along the aisle.  Or, use ribbon and/or flowers to dress the first chair in from the aisle, every few chairs of so.

But really, I wouldn’t worry too much about it. Once people are sitting in them, all chairs look mostly the same…
