When planning a wedding, attention is in every detail. When you’re thinking about the food, the DJ, the booze – who has time to think about chair décor? This is why it’s one of the most overlooked parts of the wedding. But the way you dress up your seating can make a huge difference on your big day. Here are 5 ways to dress up even the plainest chair for your wedding so you and the guests can make it an event to remember.
1. Sashes and such
Chair ties are a great way to incorporate your wedding colors into the smallest of details. There are tons of different variations of bows and brooches, so you can dress your chairs up or go for a more subtle elegance.
2. Burlap fabric and rosettes
For the couples that want a more vintage and earthly feel, burlap is a great alternative to satin or even organza. Paired with a blush rosette, these chairs are sure to add that certain “wow” factor to a down-home country wedding. It goes great with that reclaimed wood in your barn wedding!
3. To the left, to the left (or right!)
When thinking about aisle decorations, think no further than chair ties. Since they’re so versatile, you can pull them to the side and all of the guest’s vision will be pulled towards the most important part of the wedding – the wedding party and (we all know it’s true) the bride!
If you’re not willing to decorate every single chair, just think about the back row – it’s just as effective.
4. Throw a broach on that bow!
What is more elegant than a perfectly tied bow? When added to a garden chair, the whole look of the wedding seating changes. You can leave it plain, or add a sparkling brooch to take the wedding look to another level. It’s all up to you!
5. Fresh flowers and organza
This one is our favorite! Adding different textures and fabrics can really make a difference in the way your seating looks. Fresh flowers and organza transform the wedding space into a whimsical setting- the perfect place to get married. Think about adding in flowers – it makes a difference.
