I am in the same predicament. I Think chair covers look like someone threw a sheet over a chair and tied a big gaudy bow around it to dress it up. Our venue is a country club and the cost includes the chairs that are a bit dated( same as picture below but with gold frame, no dot pattern) Althought I would prefer the more delicate Chiavari Chairs or just a simple wooden framed chair, I can’t justify spending an additional $1600+ for them. Put that monet towards amazing centerpeices or great favors!


My wedding is an outdoosy theme, so I can put up with the chairs provided and work with them. In reality, the only time people really see all the chairs is when they first enter the room. Once they are at the table, people are just sitting in them and will be looking at whats in front of them-Centerpeices, other guests, bride and groom, the food, not the chairs peoples butts are in.


You want the “wow” factor when they enter your reception room, but really, its just that first minute when they walk in to find their table they will see the chairs and even then, they are focusing on the table number/name rather then the chair. Best of luck with whatever you choose to do. Perhaps instead of renting a bunch more chairs, you can hang a cute sign on the backs of the chairs with the table name or something. Use twine or a thin ribbon that goes with your theme?
