They look fine to me in the second picture, but the pattern is a little jarring in the first. If it’s really going to bother you and you’ve got the $600 in your budget, I’d do covers. But I will admit, nobody will probably notice except for you.

I think the chairs look fine.  I think chair covers can be worse.  No one is going to notice plain chairs, but I have taken note of ugly sloppy chair covers before.

I don’t think they look bad at all!

But if they are going to bother you, can you find $600 in your budget for chair covers?

I don’t think they look bad. Kind of like them, actually, though I can see what you mean about them not really working into your color scheme. Is it any help to consider that people will be sitting in them most of the time, so they won’t be all that visible?

Chair covers make chairs uncomfotable to me and honestly I have never given second thought to what the chairs at a site look like. Unless it is going to drive you totally insane, I would save the $600.

We covered similar chairs at our venue.  I wish that chavari chair rentals or other cool chair rentals were available here in the sticks, but they aren’t, so chair covers it was.

We ordered ours online and had them shipped to a US post-office box for free.  Total cost for 140 covers was around $300.  We borrowed a steamer and installed them ourselves.  I am planning to rent them out myself as a little side business, but a local wedding planner already offered to buy them all for what I paid for them.

I would say it’s worth it to do covers if you can swing it.  I think it’s true that nobody will really care much but you, but that’s kind of the case for most decor at a wedding!

I think they are fine!

I would personally hate chair covers more.

$600 is extremely worth it.

I wouldn’t pay $600 to cover those chairs. Once people are sitting, you will hardly see them. If you really can’t tolerate them, a Bee made a suggestion in anther post on the same topic yesterday. Purchase black sashes and tie them vertically over the back of the chair. You can sell them after the wedding.

Seriously… people should be remembering your ceremony, the food, the music, whatever. Just think about how you could use that $600 to make the things people actually notice that much more awesome.

@Miss_Itzy:   I actually like them! They’re kind of funky and they’ll match almost anything! 🙂

Once everyone sits, you won’t be able to see them.
