Anti-Chair Sash - Ideas?

Recommended Posts

We're probably going to use pomanders on the chairs against the aisle. I'm thinking one every other aisle and alternate on the other side, if that makes any sense. We're getting white wooden garden chairs and I like them without many things on them.

I really like the raffia sashes with starfish or shells. Very beachy! And raffia comes in different colours so you can match your theme.

I'm paying $9 per chair to swap the ugly covered/sashed chairs for white "versailles" chairs, which are just wood and simple. :)

I hate bows as well! I'm thinking of having the sash tied on the side with a starfish pinned. I've found some cute ideas online! post-278186-140497968501_thumb.jpgpost-278186-140497969564_thumb.jpgpost-278186-140497970546_thumb.jpgpost-278186-140497972102_thumb.jpg

Here are two more ideas to consider. I am going to do the second one in our wedding colors. It's soft, flowly, and easy DIY.

 

Happy planning,

Kristen.

I didn't think there were so many of us bow haters out there. I like the starfish idea

At our resort you can also add color by changing gazebo (name for it?) colors or adding an isle runner. Just a couple ideas.

Not a huge fan of the chair sashes either. We're upgrading to the gold Tiffany/Chiavari chairs. Luckily our resort is actually reasonably priced for it - $6/chair and only a $50 move fee to use them at the reception as well. I'm still figuring out what I want, but I think we're going to add flowers like this to the back row for the ceremony or every other row of aisle seats:

And I love this for the bride/groom chairs during the reception, but I have to price it out first. We're thinking about maybe bringing silk flowers and do it ourselves, but not sure about the greenery

So we might do something simpler like this, and maybe still hang some type of Bride/Groom sign on it:

Sooooo jealous!

 

Mine are $14 each and according to my offsite WC, another $14 to use them at reception. Needless to say I am ordering them once, and then begging the onsite team to move them for me to the ceremony space. (It's down 4 flights of stairs so I'm not optimistic but worth trying.) worse case? We use them only at reception and plain folding white chairs at the ceremony but it's definitely not my vision.

@@kmk2016 - I was so pleasantly shocked at the price! It comes out to like $7/chair... not bad at all. My mom HATED the white chairs and insisted we upgrade... I wanted to anyway, so I was like sure! Haha

 

Definitely beg them... another $14 is nuts. I'd even maybe rope in the groomsmen to move them if you wouldn't think they'd mind!
