Classic Finds: Fancy + Frilly Chairs

Sarah from Classic Bride is back with us every Friday to share a few of her favorite finds, inspiration and ideas for chic, classic weddings. Here’s this week’s find:

If you’re like me and don’t really favor the standard wedding/ballroom/event chairs that most venues and rental companies have to choose from, don’t feel forced to ‘make it work’ by gussying chiavaris with chair covers. Think outside the box.

There are some amazing options out there and if you’re having an intimate-sized wedding, you could even start a small collection of mis-matched antique and modern chairs to create an updated-Alice-in-Wonderland look … how amazing would ornately-carved French antique chairs look alongside some stark lucite Louis chairs? I love the idea of having the mis-matched chairs line the aisle for a small, at-home wedding and then during the cocktail hour, move the chairs over to a long farmhouse table for the reception.

The best part is you’d be making a great investment for your newlywed nest … chairs a plenty!

And if the idea of buying 40+ chairs scares you …  make them an accent … buy 5-10 and have them line the front row of the ceremony for guests of honor … then use them at the reception table for the same guests of honor. ;o)

    I love these charming little finds. I think it would be great to use them for reasons other than their intended purpose – a plant holder, a place to display wedding favors, etc. These are all so cute!

    Chairs are so important at a wedding ~ in a perfect world venues would offer more options than chiavaris and chair covers! Btw I love the “glam girls night out” template that was featured on Ruffled!
