    I like the simplicity of the first one. I have never been a big fan of chair covers and don’t see the point in the extra expense.

    @kfricke89: but its the same price either way? She’s either paying 2.50 for the black chair or 2.50 for the chair covers.

    That being said. I would definitely go with the chair covers. The little black folding chairs just look …. kind of, well, lost? plain? I guess. It’s hard to find the right word so I’m just going to go with it kind of looks like its unfinished somehow. Or missing something.

    And to me – and I’m probably in the minority & stuck back to something like the 80’s with this thought – BUT to me, chair covers & sashes are pretty much the only decor splurge worth going for, if you can. It just adds so much to the overall look and feel of the event; it automatically ups the “luxury/lush” factor and adds dimension & texture to the room. So yes. I say go with the chair covers & sashes! and btw, I really like your colour scheme for the tables. Very chic!

    I would definitely prefer the black resin chairs.  I think it looks more tasteful and plus, polyester satin tends to slip around a lot–I don’t find it fun to sit on!

    I think the black chairs will look better than chair covers and sashes- I’m not a fan, obviously.

    see? I knew I would be in the minority 🙂

    @veganglam makes a really good point about the fabric; something I forgot to consider.

    Would it be an option to put the silver sashes with the black chairs? Would that even work? :s

    I like covers more, but it depends on the whole style of wedding

    i like the black resin chairs.. You can put a bow or a sash on them to dress them up if they seem too plain..

    I actually like the covers more. I think the chairs the covers would be put on would probably be more comfortable (padded) and I think it looks like there was a lot of thought put into the deecor. Plus if it’s the exact same price then I would do it!

    I’m a big fan of chair covers, too :). I love that they make everything match and tie everything in.

    Typically I don’t like chair covers but in this case I prefer them to the resin chair. I think its because I typically see that style chair outdoors and I think it might look out of place.

    I don’t like chair covers. I like the simple clean lines of the black chair.

    I also debated this issueb back and forth and decided to just go ahead with chair covers, even though i originally said I hated chair covers. I got a great deal on self tie covers and its much less hassle for me to just put chair covers on than have all those chairs delivered. I chose self-tie covers because I’m not crazy about the regular chair cover and sash combo
