If possible, can the cocktail hour be just a little bit away from the ceremony site?  even 10 feet, and maybe put up a screen or something inbetween to block the work scene.

As far as decorating the chairs, truthfully, I call it a waste of money.  The chairs are normally a great statement by themselves, and don’t need extra decoration.  The only exception I would give would be to tie flowers or something on the chairs facing the aisle.  But sashes, etc, really aren’t necessary.  Sorry 🙁

Where are you going to be taking your pictures?  Is there anywhere the guests could be invited to go so they won’t see all the movement?  But…you know, if you aren’t looking for a super, super formal wedding, I don’t think it matters.  


As for decoration…here is a link to a gigantic picture: http://www.homahku.com/wedding-chair-decorations/wedding-tag-chair-decorations-wedding-by-color/  The decoration looks pretty easy, and it wouldn’t get destroyed in transit.

There is this, but it looks soooooo time-consuming:


The other idea I was thinking of doing at my own wedding was having something ON each seat that was pretty yet practical, such as a flower with a program.

You certainly could do ribbon on only the back row and perhaps the asile chairs for the ceremony.

For the reception you could make cute slipcovers for just the top of the back of the chair.

These can be made ahead of time and are just slipped over the back- no arranging, fluffing or buffing needed.

We’re using the white folding chairs from the ceremony for ourreception, we actually don’t like the upgraded chairs provided by the venue.  We also don’t really like the covers.

ok went a wedding where the chairs were removed right after the ceremony. I don’t think anyone cared. Only you think this much detail of perfect because well you are a bride and it’s what we do. people will be more worried about talking with each other and having a good time versus the disappearing chairs
