Chair covers can hide a multitude of stains, scrapes and unsightly patterns… but let’s be honest, those white polyester covers are pretty hideous! I’ve never been a fan – I cannot understand why some venues still provide grotty chairs which need to be hidden, while others simply buy beautiful Chiavari or elegant wooden chairs for their weddings! Luckily lovely Hollie from Daisy Says I Do has shared her simple solutions with us today.

Chairs – how a modern bride makes wedding chairs beautiful
“Many venues now have simple and stylish furniture, however some venues’ chairs may still be in need of a little update. If your budget allows I would recommend hiring something different whether it be a simple Chiavari chair, a wooden or white fold up chair or a mix and match vintage collection in rich dark wood for a relaxed, rustic style.
Once you have a good chair as a base you can then avoid chair covers and go for a more contemporary dressing of which there are many options depending on your style.
Threading bright ribbons works beautifully with a colourful scheme, or the same approach with strands of lace can create a modern yet nostalgic feel.
If your style is contemporary and luxurious consider draped lace or fabric tied with a simple ribbon in a colour from your scheme.
For the modern bride who loves detail the bride and groom’s chairs offer the perfect opportunity to get creative.
This extra layer of detail looks beautiful in photographs, I always love an excuse for more flowers, especially when they are as beautiful as this!” ~ Hollie, Daisy Says I Do
