Help (PIP)

Hey Ladies,

I'm on a serious budget. Having issues deciding wether to use the hotel chairs or rent chair covers and sashes. My colors are teal,chocolate with a hint of kiwi green. Please help! I'm stuck!

These are the hotel chairs.

    I say just go with the hotel chair if you are on a serious budget. The money you need to use to rent chair covers and sashes can be better used in another area.

    Thanks ladies! Maybe it won't look too bad if I use  a chocolate overlay. Hopefully it will kinda blend in. LAWD knows I don't want it to look a mess!

    Since the chairs are brown & one of your colors is chocolate, the chairs can blend in.

    if you're on a serious budget, just keep the hotel chairs.  i wouldn't worry about the covers and sashes either.  once people are seated, no one will care what color the chairs are.  they will only care that they have a seat.

    <div>This exactly! When I look at wedding pics, the chairs are usually the last thing I notice. I was stuck on getting chiavari chairs for our wedding for a while, but after making a list of what's really important, I decided that would really be a waste of $$</div>

    I agree with the other ladies.  Also Ive seen pics of weddings with those chairs used and it was just as beautiful.

    I voted for the chair covers and sashes.  Since you are on a budget, go with the hotel chairs.  No one is really going to be paying attention to the chairs.  Some hotels provide the chair covers. If you really want the covers, check around your town and do some price comparsions. I am all about the budget, so do what works for your pocketbook.

    The hotel chairs don't look bad here and they will blend with your scheme. I think the tables will be the focus anyway...not the chairs.

    Your chairs look better than mines. Stick with the banquet chairs. Once you add decor.....people will not be paying any attention.

    I'm in Orlando too and depending on what hotel you are using and how many people  you are having you may want to check if they will include the chair covers in your contract.  My hotel is including the chair covers and sashes in my color. So you may want to check to see. 

    If they don't those chairs will be fine you may want to see if you could find something to do just the sashes around the chairs but even if you can't they will be fine.

    Although I am voting for the hotel chairs, I ran across a new feature on the BBlinen website where they opened an online "gently used" linens section.  If you don't mind  this option, then you could look there.  And by used I mean in really good shape.

    I actually think you are in a very good situation - looking at the carpet in that pic, it looks like it has all of your wedding colors in it!  (teal, chocolate, green)

    I think the chairs are fine - honestly if you try to cover those type of chairs with sashes, etc. it might look strange anyway.  They will be fine with your color scheme.  Use your money elsewhere!

    Thanks ladies! I think if I go with chocolate linens then I will be fine. I hope I'll be fine. LOL...
