45 Awesome Ideas to Decorate Your Wedding Chairs

There are so many ways to decorate your wedding chairs! To highlight the vintage look you may use lace; to add a rustic feel take burlap and add some flowers; to have a glamorous look you can use ruffled covers, or long fabric interwoven into the backs, to meet the garden theme you take greenery and flowers with the addition of fabric. Whatever you choose, here are some ideas to inspire!

1.Simple Greenery
A little or a lot. A swag, a stem, or a wreath…there is no wrong way to use greenery on your wedding chairs. Another perk of using greenery is that it won’t wilt, and that is so important because people will be taking pics of you in these chairs over and over and a limp flower won’t kill the vibe!

2. Fabric and flowers
If you want a romantic touch, fresh flowers added to your chairs will give you that exact feel. Flowers are special and when you use them to mark your special seats, it’s an automatic win that those seats are special. Adding fabric helps support the flowers and hide any water treatment tubes the florist may need to use to keep your posies perky all night long.

3. Woven Fabric
Chiavari chairs are gorgeous on their own, but when you braid fabric through the intricate backs, you really have something special. Another perk of a woven fabric is that it stays put and doesn’t slide around while you are up and down all night. It’s literally set it and forget it!

5. Vintage Lace
If lace is your “thang” then you need to add it to a chair! Bow it, drape it, sash it, or weave it and it’s always going to look great! Another perk is that it doesn’t wrinkle, so to make it look flawless requires zero effort and who wouldn’t like a little less work on the big day?

6. Boho theme
If you are going Boho, then macramé is probably going to be used in your wedding, and why not on the back of your chairs? It’s comfy AND it can be used as a wall hanging in your home after the big day, so you just have something that got reused and what Boho bride doesn’t love that idea?
