An easy way to tie in your wedding decorations to your theme or wedding style, regardless of the event space’s style – is to include wedding chair decorations. Often you can rent them from the same company that provides linens and other small party rental equipment. You can also buy them online for great prices, especially in bulk, as well as rent from a different company that provides wedding rentals – or you can even make your own!
Before deciding on how you would like to decorate the chairs at your wedding ceremony or reception, consider what the chairs will be used for. If they’re just decorated for the ceremony and won’t be used for the reception, the look can be vastly different. A row of chairs for the reception could have only the aisle chair decorated, which can save a lot of money. The aisle chair could be wrapped with a swath of fabric and secured with a bow or flowers for a beautifully decorated aisle to walk down that is easy to put together and easy to clean up.
It would be a great idea to ensure that there is plenty of room between rows if you have every chair decorated for the ceremony, as people entering the rows may be more prone to tripping over any loose fabric or dangling ribbons.
For the reception, though, the possibilities are endless! There are so many clever and lovely ideas for decorating the chairs at your wedding reception! The chivari chairs lend themselves quite well to being decorated with tulle or ribbon, which you can weave through the bars of the chair back.
But that’s not all; there are plenty of other great options out there as well! Here are a few more ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
- Consider placing a little bucket on each chair and putting a flower or some cheap wedding sparklers in there for your guests to enjoy after the ceremony.
- Some other lovely looks for wedding receptions include using a side-swept bow.
- Simple and easy decorations for a rustic wedding could include burlap and lace – always a favorite look and very easy to achieve beautiful results.
- Back of chair signage and ribbon swags are always charming, and the looks can be so versatile that they fit any wedding theme or style!
Whatever kind of look you’re going for on your wedding chairs, they’ll look absolutely beautiful if you blend the design with your wedding theme and colors. Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box and add components that you normally wouldn’t consider to create a functional and beautiful design for your guests to enjoy.
