    I’m not a fan. Just find nicer chairs.

    I chose other because I love them! I can afford them! (even though our coordinator insisted it was a waste of money) I just don’t have enough time for them. With our wedding being at a zoo we have a very limited amount of time to actually decorate our venue space. We have to wait until the zoo closes at 6 to start doing anything and then our ceremony starts at 7:30 So I just decided that the last thing I needed to worry about was whether 100 chairs were perfectly covered. I wish I could have them, but I’m sure it won’t be something I look back on and regret.

    If you decide to use them please post photos!

    He wanted them, I didn’t. I was the one handling the budget and money, so we skipped them. Honestly, they can be awesome, but they can also drag down some decor and make it look too heavy. No one will remember whether you had chair covers or not, so I didn’t think it was worth the money.

    I do not like chair covers however I hate ugly chairs at weddings more, so if you can’t upgrade your chairs and they are heinous, I’d go with chair covers.  

    It also depends on your personality – some brides could care less about ugly chairs, I’m just the type of person that would NOT be able to see past the ugly chairs in pictures…but that’s just me.

    We had them, but only because they were relatively cheap. They did make our chairs looks amazing, though.

    That’s very, very steep for chair covers. For me, it was a must-have. We had a small floral budget and couldn’t really decorate the reception with the most grand centerpieces. For me, having the chair covers added a really elegant touch, made the room look more fancy and decorated and took the smaller centerpieces up a notch. It also made a big difference in the ceremony. The ceremony had a white chuppah with candles lining the aisle, and the whole room was tied together with the white chair covers (no bows on them during the ceremony, gold bows during the reception). Especially since it was an indoor wedding and there were a lot of chairs.

    They were a must have for me! I loved how they pulled the room together:

    I generally hate them and find them a bit ugly. Every once in a while they look decent, but it’s rare that I am a fan!

    I voted for option one but really meant to vote for option 3. For us, since we are having only 75 people, I would go find nicer chairs before I used a chair cover. But, thats just my style.

    i don’t really care for them. plus our venue said we couldn’t bring in covers either and for 150 people it was going to be about $450 so it was a definite no for us.

    I hate to be rude, but I am definitely NOT a fan of chair covers. What do the chairs look like?

    Honestly I don’t love them and I think they distract from a room. A lot of times it’s just becomes a sea of fabric that is too busy and overwhelming to look at.

    I hate them…I think they attract too much attention and look clunky.  I really like chiavarri (sp?) chairs but they are going to cost us an arm and a leg.  Hopefully, the chairs at the reception venue (will see in person in December) won’t look bad and we can have them as-is.

    i don’t think they’re really necessary unless your chairs are really ugly. we had bistro chairs (i think that’s what they’re called?) and they were pretty, so we didn’t do covers. i don’t think guests care one way or another.
