Question:

Should we have chair covers?

We are having our wedding at a museum that doesn't do a lot of weddings, just 1 or 2 a year. They do other events like conferences and dinners though and they have chairs that we can use. The problem is, as far as I know they are just basic black metal folding chairs. In the pictures that I've seen of events held there, there wasn't any chair coverings at all. Do you think that it would be tacky to leave them as is? Is it the type of thing that a guest would notice or frown upon at all? I know little details like this don't really concern most guests, I'm just not sure how little this is. We're not looking to spend a crazy amount of money on this, but any cheaper DIY chair cover ideas would be welcome as well! I've been googling this but haven't found any great solutions and was considering just leaving them as-is.

Answer:

While the first few guests that arrive at your wedding will see the chairs and the chair covers, do you know what the vast majority of your guests will see? Other people and some open seating. They are not going to get the oomph factor that you see in photographs for chair cover vendors. And do you know what your guests will be looking at during your vows? Besides looking at the woman in the big white dress (you), they will be staring at the back of the head of the person in front of them. They will not be looking at the chair covers. I would save my money and bypass this needless expense. I can guarantee you that none of your guests will be thinking...gee this would have been a nice wedding except that the chairs weren't covered at the museum.

I don't know how many people will be at your wedding but I don't see how you could cover a large amount of chairs or even a few for $50 to look nice. And a year from the wedding or even a month after you won't be thinking/remember chair covers. People are so focused on glamorized weddings. Just focus on enjoying your day and spend that money on a date with your fiancé.

I have seen uglier chairs at profesional banquet halls... Anyway they usually charge per cover and a quick google search showed me the cheapest is $1.49 per chair cover. I don't know how many people you have but for 50 thats like 70 something bucks. They are not terrible looking chairs and chair covers will not make them anymore comfortable to sit in. No one will notice if i were you i would skip the chair covers

is that this for ceremony chairs or eating chairs on the reception? each and every 365 days a company i'm in touch in places on an fairly elegant dinner for human beings being initiated to our team. We set a table with vast white tablecloths and then have dozens of white pillowcases for the chair backs. it incredibly is white cotton, no longer satin or something yet under the glowy lighting fixtures all of it seems incredibly staggering. have confidence me -- the room seems magnificent and white and no person even notices the seats incredibly. If it incredibly is for ceremony chairs of course you may't do this. i'd perform a little greater looking. i replaced into looking the sashes for $a million.00 or so, yet it fairly is devoid of the covers. according to probability purchase a bolt of white fabric and a bolt of tulle ribbon and shrink your guy or woman?

Truly if it were my wedding I would do the chair covers. It's just a nice detail. There's other ways to save money, like not going all that big on your center pieces?
