You are the bride and groom, so you should have the seats to show it!
Although it’s a detail that’s often overlooked during the busy planning process, planning some cute details for your chairs makes for some great photos and most definitely adds a new element of charm to your big day. You can just do your own chairs, the ceremony chairs, or even all the chairs if you’re daring and have the time!
Whether used as a focal point at your wedding or as a little addition to your wedding decor, it’s fun to dress up your chairs with something that uniquely represents you and matches up with your wedding style, theme, and budget.
You could adorn the chairs with simple hand painted Mr. & Mrs. signs to showcase your new married status – this is always cute!
Most brides are choosing to leave the full chair covers behind and are opting for mismatched ribbons, draped fabric, ruffles, lace or sheer sashes… find a few fabrics that match your colour scheme and get creative. Burlap is a great neutral colour that works perfectly with a rustic theme! Or, use a sash to tie a small bunch of fragrant flowers to the back of the chairs!
Another great idea is to choose a set of brightly coloured chairs for warm and quirky feel. You can easily find some old chairs at the thrift store and do them up yourself to make them extra special. We recommend using the easiest distressing tool ever – Annie Sloan Chalk Paint – which you can learn how to do at our special class with The Passionate Home on March 24th.
