Wedding Reception Ideas: Chiavari Chairs as Decor

Any girl who has helped plan a wedding knows how tough wedding planning can be. It’s tough because there are so many choices, so many themes, so many colors…and everything looks so pretty! However there is one thing that all brides can agree on: chiavari chairs for the wedding reception! Prior to helping my girlfriends plan their weddings, I had no idea what chiavari chairs were, or how they were able to elevate the look of any wedding. Here are some reasons why other brides and bridesmaids have loved using chiavari chairs:

1. The Perfect Wedding Chair: Modern, Elegant, & Simple
Though the chiavari chair rental may cost a bit more than your average wood or wood chair, it is definitely worth the investment. The main appeal of the chiavari chair is its sheer simplicity. When it comes to decorating, often times than most, less is more! Less is more. The chiavari chair may not be all jazzed up with intricate designs, glitter, flowers, and other décor, but boy does it deliver elegance and sophistication.

2. Lightweight and Sturdy
Chiavari Chairs are known to be very portable because they don’t weigh much at all. Wooden Chiavari chairs only weigh around 10 lbs. This makes the chairs very easy to transport, very easy to arrange, easy to stack, and easy to store. However, keep in mind that not all Chiavari chairs are made equally. Some manufacturers have higher grade chairs while others have less quality grade resulting in less durable chairs. To ensure the safety of your guests, you don’t want to save a couple bucks by renting out cheap Chiavari chairs.

3. Highly Customizable
Chiavari chairs are customizable. They come in a variety of different colors such as silver, gold, deep reds, black, white, natural and so forth. Two of the most popular choices for weddings are gold and silver. However you can mix and match or just pick out chairs of the same color that match up with your décor. Another option is to customize the color and fabric of the cushions. Depending on where you order your Chiavari chair rentals, you might have the freedom to change as you please.

4.. As Seen on TV
If you’re not too creative and need inspiration when it comes to planning out your wedding, luckily for you, Chiavari chairs are frequently portrayed in movies, important events, hotels, museums functions, and wedding magazines all over the world! Just by Googling Chiavari chairs, you have more than enough inspirational ideas for how to incorporate these chairs during your wedding ceremony.

5. Looks Great on Their Own
Often people who rent out chairs have to rent out chair accessories. Often times, generic chair rentals are plain and boring. Brides often feel the need to spruce it up by adding additional decoration. Adding additional décor to your chairs plus the cost for the chairs usually end up costing around the same as simply renting out Chiavari chairs. So if you’re looking for a beautiful and easy solution, invest in Chiavari chairs-they are perfect as is.

    the same opinion these chairs are simple, elegant and modern.  They look stylish and attractive as per the
    theme.   Covers are very basic and look
    bland without additional decoration. Others are stylish, shiny and are very
    formal and classy by themselves.
