Our venue wanted to charge us $6.50/chair for chivari and there was no way in hell I could justify over $1K for chairs that would be covered in jackets and people’s butts all night. πŸ™‚ These “garden” chairs were only $2/chair to rent and honestly I don’t think I even realized there WERE chairs at the wedding on the day of!

We are using the amazing chairs at the venue without any covers. Here is a photo of their website with the chairs.

Ours are ugly. I don’t have any pics yet, but I just couldn’t justify spending money on something I consider trivial that no one will really notice or remember. I can’t tell you how much I DON’T notice chairs at a wedding. πŸ™‚

My venue has restaurant-like chairs. I love chiavari but these work just fine for me!

@Keltaena:  What is your color scheme/theme? Do those chairs work at all? I don’t think they are that terrible to be honest.

@eagle:  My bad. They are what came with the venue and they do offer chiavari chairs to rent instead. πŸ™

all i can tell you about chivari chairs is that i find them incredibly uncomfortable, and i know that i’m not the only one, as there have been several threads on this topic and others agree!

No pro pics of it yet. but we had folding metal chairs at our reception and not a soul said a thing about it and I don’t remember even seeing them the day of, people are in them, people walk around, they put jackets on them, ect.

While the fancy chairs look nice, they will be in all of one picture maybe from the day, and honestly, as long as the other chairs are not awfully uncomfortable, no one is going to care.

@Keltaena:  Our chairs are like that too! Our colors are purple and green, lol. What we did was add teeeeensy bits of burgundy to the other things – like a burgundy ribbon on part of the centerpieces. It was thin and smaller than the purple and green ones. Just enough to be like, “We know there are burgundy chairs here, guys.” Lol. I’ll have to show you when we do our recaps next month! (Holy crap!)

But again, I think chairs are kind of whatever. Plus, people will be sitting in them most of the time, not staring at them. πŸ˜‰
