I think you need to think about exactly how you feel about them.

Really, when it comes down to it, once everyone is sitting down, they really won’t notice : HOWEVER – if you are wanting pictures of the setup before guests arrive.. it would really help bring everything together.

I personally DO notice chairs & prefer chair covers on ugly chairs .

I’m guessing you’re having around 90 guests since it would cost $200+ for chair covers?

I am replacing similar chairs at my venue with chiavari chairs (only because my rental vendor is giving me an awesome deal!!!)

If I wasnt going to be able to replace the actual chairs, then I was just going to get a chair sash and tie a bow at the top of the chair in the “loop” at top.  That would dress the chair up a little bit and you dont have to mess with those pesky chair covers!!!

I dont know if youve ever assisted with putting chair covers on… but they are a PAIN!

Personally, I’d rather have ugly chairs than chair covers; I think chair covers look like giant pillow cases throw over chairs.

I have the same exact chairs in my venue and I am using plum/eggplant as my wedding color. Those chairs will not work against eggplant table linens. I have no choice but to cover them. if your colors will work with the chairs and not clash, its probably not a big deal.

You have a couple options, really.

You could rent differant chairs completely, which will cost a little bit more than chair covers.

Chair covers.

Chair sleeves – there are ENDLESS possibilities with this, you could even find your own fabric and make them or get them made.


or something decorative like this :

I do think with your brown and ivory the red will def clash with it….thats jmo.

My vote would be to cover them! I love some of the options pp has listed. Those are gorgeous covers but will prob be pretty pricey!
