    Does anyone know if the resort will charge me to put on chair covers and sashes if I bring my own?
    My guest list has increased from 60 to 103 and my budget is getting blown out of the water!!!! I can no longer afford the 12US per chair cost from the resort....
    Thanks!!!

      I'm not clear as to whether or not they charge extra for such things. I know I gave some items to Chandlyn for the dinner table and she never said anything.

      Is there someone that could assist you with it? Maybe designate someone to help out? Perhaps Chandlyn would be willing to do it for nothing...good luck!

        Thanks!!! So I found some local places I can bring my own. NOW I notice in pictures that the chairs have arms!!! AHHHH - I see some reception settings are a more narrow back armless chair and some are the wider back wooden with wicker chair. I even saw some plastic ones. Do you get a choice? If I bring my own covers I sure better make sure it fits!!

          At the ROR they use wooden chairs with arms. What about just doing a sash of some sort and not the actual cover? I say this only because you have alot of guests coming and yes it's nice to have covers but is it really worth the cost, labour etc?!?! OR You can always bring some flowers to put on the chairs..similar to putting them at the end of pews at a church?!?!

          Just some ideas! There were only 6 of us and sure I alot of stuff to bring but you would have TONS ;-)

            Your not kidding!!! I have about 300lbs worth of stuff so far! Doesn't help that my charter only allows 1 piece of luggage at 44lbs AND I have a 6 month old who needs to eat his food every day, and bring diapers, clothes for him AND they don't allow a piece of luggage for him!!!! Needless to say I am shipping all of his stuff, OOT bags, give away mugs, candles, candleholders for the OOT bags, centerpieces for 11 tables + head table...ugg....thank god for air canada cargo they are great prices!!

            So, your ideas I've thought of too, do you think the sashes would look funny on the wood chairs by themselves though Gosh, I've just never seen it.
            I do agree the flowers would be nice on the isle ends of the chairs, I may just have to do that and pay to just do the head table chair covers at the reception. I don't know. I'm so stressed!!!

              Perhaps where you should start is by emailing Chandlyn and see what she says about the chair covers/sashes. Maybe she is willing to do it for nothing and maybe you could slip her a bit of a tip

              That is where I would start. Yes, it's your big day and it's important for you to have what you want the way you want it..but..if you are super stressed maybe this is one detail you can skip..is anyone going to really notice the chairs when the beautiful bride walks down the aisle?

              That's just me though..nice & easy..simple simple...less stress Let me know what you decide and I'll definetly be watching for your review when you return!
