How to Choose Wedding Chair Covers

What’s the easiest way to change a room’s appearance? That’s right, chair covers. And if the chairs at your wedding venue don’t quite match the rest of the decor, well who cares? Just pop on a chair cover and you’ve got a blank canvas to work with. Easy.

But wait. It’s actually not quite that easy. When it comes to wedding chair covers, there’s a good bit of variety. And you want to make sure you get the right ones, don’t you? Here’s a few things to consider when choosing your chair covers:


Colour is the primary consideration, and you’ve got 2 main choices: white or not white.


White polyester chair covers are the norm, and very popular for weddings. If you want a clean, elegant look, white chair covers are an excellent choice.

Not White

If you’re going for a more upscale look, you’ll want something a little different than the standard white. Green, black and purple are popular shades, which retain a classy feel while adding a touch of character. And if you’re feeling really adventurous, why not opt for a pattern?


There are 2 main styles to choose from: standard or wrap.


Standard chair covers are simple yet elegant. Nothing too fancy, just a cover which fits snugly around the chair.


Wrap chair covers have become more popular of late. Essentially, there is a lot of extra material which is gathered up and tied around the back of the chair.

Sash or No Sash

Sashes come in a variety of styles and colours and are useful way to add a splash of colour to your chair covers. But if you prefer a simple, one colour look, you can always go without.

Type of Chair

It’s important to choose the right kind of chair when it comes to wedding chair covers. The most popular and easiest to decorate are Chiavari Chairs, popular for their simplicity and elegance which in turn makes for a chair that is easy to decorate and style for your individual taste.
