I thought the same thing. I decided to buy my own chair bows and table runners.....they were much cheaper! Plus another bride on the forum with the same color scheme offered to go half on them. I just love these ladies!!! Anyway they were $0.69 ea the table runners $3 somthing which is very cheap and they are nice. I did check with the resort about set-up and they said they wouldn't charge me for it but i needed enough for ceremony location and private reception which was still cheaper than thier $4 chairbows. We saw pics of the chairs without covers and just the bows and loved it. So checkout the link they were very nice, speedy delivery and good quality!
Quick question for everyone....does anyone have any pictures of just plain old chairs for the ceremony? Is everyone choosing chair covers and bows? I want them...but $9 per chair just seems crazy and like the hugest waste of almost $1000.
Does anyone think the absence of chair covers and bows will take anything away awy or am I being stupid for choosing this to obsess about today???
