Gone are the days of the ugly ballroom chair disguised head to toe, draped in cloth and tied up pretty with a bow. Here are beautiful wedding chairs done up with simple, chic and decidedly vintage inspired decor. Crisp white folding chairs are given a breath of fresh air with colorful sheer organza bows, or prettied up at the reception with “Bride” and “Groom” blackboard signs. In fact, making the bride and groom chairs stand out, whether at the sweetheart table or mixed in with the entire wedding party, is all the rage, allowing for couples to add some romantic or whimsical decor elements to their chairs while letting the others stand alone. More often than not we’re seeing Chiavari chairs as the seating of choice, as they can be found in any color and are quite pretty and elegant all by their lonesome. I love the looks of the asymmetrical ribbon, a splash of unexpected color, or the lovely sheer ribbon streamers romantically waving in the breeze. Rustic weddings are adding surprise chair decor elements like wheat or straw tied up all pretty, or burlap banners with lace trims. But my fave has to be the look of simple flowers tied up with a beautiful ribbon on the back of a chair. Gorgeous, chic, organic and an elegant new way to use real flowers in your wedding decor.
