So you have chosen the venue for your big event and are totally happy with your choice. Then you go back to wrap up the details and wait….what? Those chairs are a hideous shade of blue that will totally clash with your décor. Now what?! So the first and most obvious answer is, “I know I will get some chair covers and hide them!” you think triumphantly! A good idea and sometimes is the only choice. There are however, some inherent problems with the chair cover solution. chair-cover-solutionThere is an endless selection of chair designs and finding a cover to fit your chair properly can prove to be very difficult and I can tell you from experience an ill-fitting chair cover is just plain “sloppy looking”. A chair cover produces a very formal look and can change the entire feel of your event. Be sure to take a look at some pictures and be sure this is really the look you are trying to achieve. It can be a very costly, time sucking solution. Not to mention that bow tying is not everyone’s “unique ability”. So by now you are undoubtedly wondering, “What are my options?” Firstly, there is a beautiful, self-tying, universal alternative called a chair sack but it is definitely formal looking and can get expensive and time-consuming if you are talking about covering a lot of chairs. There are times when it makes sense to simply replace the chair with one you prefer. This solution can be about half the cost of a chair cover and may possibly allow you the ability to stay true to your original vision of the overall décor.
