(Closed) Talk me out of Chivari Chairs!

When we were looking at venues, I too was hung up on chivaris and all ready to plunk down the (outrageous) cash for them. It was all about the looks, because when I finally sat on one I couldn’t deny (as much as I wanted to) that it was actually pretty uncomfortable! The backs are really upright and the chairs themselves are really hard.

However … the venue we decided to use has two sets of chairs, white plastic stacking ones for the outdoor (ceremony) area that actually look modern and not tacky, as well as some padded ones for the indoor (dinner/reception) area that I am going to cover. (On their own, they’re not terrible, but I still think they’re a little ugly.)

I agree with the others, put that $$ toward something else, and just go with cheaper chairs — covers aren’t that outrageous to rent. I can’t tell you one thing about the chairs at any wedding I’ve ever been to, so I don’t think it’s something that people really notice!

Ours are $4. If I were having a larger wedding I probably still wouldn’t get them, but with 50 guests it’s something I’ll swallow. I *know* hardly anyone will notice, but I will!

I don’t think they’re a big deal at all.

Nobody cares what they’re sitting on. I bet they prefer to be served premium liquor though
