Sequin Chair Covers

I love anything sparkly so top of my list for chair decorations has to be sequin chair covers. Add some shimmer and sparkle to your wedding day by choosing silver, gold or rose gold sequins – if you want to keep this glittering look a little more muted then opt for matte rather than shiny.

Lace Chair Covers

Add a vintage finishing touch to your wedding day by topping your chairs with sheer lace. If you have gorgeous chairs at your wedding and you don’t want to hide them then this is a great way to give some personality without hiding the gorgeous design.

Hearts And Flowers

A wicker heart with flowers is the most beautiful finishing touch for your wedding chairs. If you love this idea but you’re planning a wedding on a budget then you could use these cute details to mark the happy couple’s chairs.

Burlap Chair Sashes

Forget traditional (and sometimes garish!) chair sashes and replace vibrant satin with rustic burlap. This is a simple and inexpensive idea to give your wedding chairs a rustic makeover – perfect for a woodland wedding or a barn venue.

Satin and Chiffon

Don’t be afraid to mix your fabrics – satin and chiffon work beautifully together and we love this grey and coral colour scheme.

A Touch of Tulle

Add some sheer and pretty detail to your wedding chairs by adding a length of tulle around each chair – bonus points if this matches the fabric of your wedding dress!

Ruffled Chair Sashes

Try ruffled chair sashes to add something a little bit different to your wedding reception – it’s a subtle way to add some style to your day.

Chalk Board Chair Signs

Chalk board signs not only give your chairs a unique finishing touch, they can also double up as place cards.
