Decorating Wedding Chair Covers
Decorating Wedding Chair Covers
If wedding chair covers are used, trimmings are added, or the two are combined, the results when you decorate your venue chairs will be fantastic. While wedding chair covers instantly and easily do up venue chairs, other decorations can work wonders too. Plain white or ivory covers work as a ready canvas for your wedding colours. Decorative accents may include greenery, flowers, or seasonal ornaments. With so many options, one thing is certain – no wedding venue has to be spoilt by horrid, unattractive chairs.
Ribbons and Bows
Ribbons are a great way to accessorise your wedding chair covers. A single band of ribbon may be used for a modern and clean effect, while several bands of ribbons can give a more dreamy appearance to your wedding chair covers. Simple bows can have an extremely eye catching effect when placed as an accessory for wedding chair covers. Huge bows can be used to signify the important tables, or can just be placed on every chair. Available in every shade you can imagine, ribbons, bows and sashes are a simple, effective way to introduce colour and add interest, particularly if the rest of your wedding linen is white.
Fabric strips and sashes can be used much like bows can. Having a belt of draped fabric on the back of a chair in a different colour can add a classy look to a wedding chair cover. Cut a wide length of fabric in a colour or pattern that suits your theme and drape it gently from the chair back or tie it in a snug band in a ruffled or pleated effect. Alternatively, 2 toned material could be pulled in a diagonal sweep across the chair.
Use decorative throw pillows, or small pillows that you can cover with fabrics to match your theme or wedding colours. This suggestion offers comfort as well as style, though it is perhaps only appropriate for less formal weddings.
Flowers could be used on the backs of your wedding chair covers, adding a splash of colour. Flowers that compliment the centre pieces could be slipped into chair bows or sashes. Otherwise, ask your florist about creating flower chair backs to co-ordinate with your floral table centres. If your budget doesn’t stretch to a flower garland for each guest, then just trim the chairs at your top table. Otherwise, you might want to contemplate using artificial flowers. Instead of garlands you could use little posies and hang them from the chairs with ribbons. Attaching a single flower to the side of the chair with a pretty ribbon is a very understated way to style an informal wedding.
Draw attention to the bride and grooms chairs by adding their names to the covers or sashes in embroidery. Personalise each chair with the name of the guest assigned to that seat. This will create a more contemporary reception look as your tables can be less cluttered; just attach your place name tags to the backs of chairs. Be sure that you use a bold colour and clear writing so that guests can find their place setting effortlessly.
If you have a theme, rather than a simple colour scheme for your wedding décor, the possibilities are endless when it comes to your chairs. Snow flakes are great for winter theme weddings while spring flowers can be used for a fresh look in March. Bright, vivid colours work well in summer for wedding chair covers and autumn foliage can be used to add warmth to your wedding venue.
