…or is going to look like!
Also is it worth upgrading general chairs (with white covers) to chiavari chairs? In my area it’s around a 60% price increase..I love the look, but I don’t want to feel like it didn’t make much difference in the end.

Here are the pics of our wedding. At the beginning I really wanted to have tiffany chairs but then I realized that it would be too much. So we just got golden tiffany chairs for the bride and groom table. I hope this helps.

I’m not married yet so I don’t have any photos but I wouldn’t worry about upgrading to chiavari chairs unless your budget definitely has the room to. I also wouldn’t sacrifice anything else to make room for chair upgrades. Have you thought about white garden chairs instead? They run close to standard folding chairs in my area and were originally what we planned to go with. We are having gold chiavari chairs for our wedding but ONLY because our venue offers them at $3 a chair.

We just went with the chairs they provided because upgrading would have been way too pricey for the amount of people we had. I don’t even think anyone noticed or thought about them in the long run.

If it’s going to make your budget tight, I would hands down not do it. I don’t think guests care one bit whether the chairs are covered or not. But if you love them and have the budget for it, go for it!

Not from my wedding, I’m getting married in May. But these are some pics from the venues website.

I’m going to be the voice of dissent and say it’s worth it. I just really don’t care for the look of the white covered chairs, and while the chiavari chairs are 60% more, it’s not that big of an expense overall. That said, I don’t think it will make one ounce of difference in terms of your guests’ enjoyment.

Chiavari chairs were worth it to me…

Chiavari chairs were worth it to me. I am someone who notices these things and sometimes it can make a mediocre room look amazing.

I’m not married yet but we did decide to go for the chair upgrade. I actually think it makes a huge difference to the space – the chairs actually make up a lot of it!
On the other hand, I do agree that it probably makes very little difference to your guests experience. But for me the aesthetics of the day are one of the things I’m really excited about!

We decided to do the chairs! It will be about $1k which I didn’t think was too bad but personally it is worth it to me. We were going to do garden chairs if we went with the other venue but this venue didn’t charge for a room rental like a lot of others did so I just pretended that was my “rental fee”. Our wedding hasn’t happened yet but here is the room with and without chiavari chairs.

I’m really crazy about chairs, and they were really important to me because they are pretty much a HUGE part of what you see for the reception… Fortunately I was able to afford nice chairs (my venue did not come with chairs either, so we were going to have to rent something no matter what). Here are some pictures of what our reception was like. To me, it was 100% worth it. I HATE chair covers…
But, if they don’t bother you then my advice would be to not worry about it. You have to prioritize in your budget what works for you best, and if chairs aren’t important, then I say put the money elsewhere.
