The Big Debate – Chair Covers: Cover or Not to Cover?

After seeing a debate on Facebook over chair covers, I felt the urge to rush to their defence (understandably so!). The debate started when we were featured in the latest issue of a wedding magazine with the opening line “There is absolutely no excuse for boring reception chairs!”  One lady took offence to this and decided to write to this effect on the said Facebook wall how she thought chair covers were a waste of money and the biggest con in the wedding industry!  She was quickly put down with comments on how chair covers can not only transform a room and create a theme but they also cover up ugly chairs.

So here’s my reasoning on why I think chair covers are necessary. 

-In a dark room white chair covers are fantastic for brightening up a room. Just look at these pictures for proof.

They can be used to incorporate your theme, such as these vintage options.

Or they can add a gorgeous splash of colour to your wedding.

Many Brides base their theme around their chair covers.  When they see the gorgeous two tone crystal organza colours we have to offer, many brides fall in love with a specific colour and then their theme follows.

It’s not just plain white covers that we have to offer either.  Alternatives can be provided in black, butter or these gorgeous flock organza chair veil below.  Bespoke covers can also be provided.

Chair covers are not only pretty but useful too as most wedding venues have one set of, which tend to be, hideously coloured chairs and chair covers can hide these.

So if you’re with me on this, here’s a few reasons why you should book Simply Bows and Chair Covers for your wedding:

  • We visit the venue to make sure our chair covers fit the venues chairs.  And we prefer it if you’re there too so that you know what to expect on your big day.

  • All our chair covers are hand pressed and laundered before an event.
  • We personally deliver and fit the chair covers ourselves, so you don’t have to do it on your big day.  It’s our job to make sure they look perfect.
  • After the event, we will collect all the linen, meaning there is no extra hassle for you.
