Hi ladies! I am really hoping someone can give me an idea on how to make folding chairs look nice without having to rent slip-covers for them.
We are renting a small clubhouse on the beach for our ceremony and reception. The tables and chairs are included in the reception hall but they are basic, cream colored folding chairs with a padded seat. I can rent slip-covers to go over them but that is a cost I would like to avoid. Soooo…I am hoping someone has already come across this issue or something similar and managed to come up with an inexpensive and creative way to dress things up a little.
btw..my colors are yellow and burgandy with a beach theme. Thanks!

@helenc32: I think they sound lovely as-is. You are really lucky that your venue supplies neutral, wedding-appropriate colored folding chairs. I think that anything you would add (sash etc.) would just make them look tacky. I’ve never personally seen “Dressed-up folding chairs” that looked classy, to tell you the truth. I would just leave them as-is and focus your decorating elsewhere. Simple is best when it comes to chairs. And that is great that they’re padded!

I kind of agree with bride123, I would just focus on a nicer aisle set up. I think the chairs are neutral enough (especially with people in them) that you can draw the attention to the aisle and the front where you will be.
