Beautiful Ideas For Wedding Chair Decorations
Wedding chair decorations can enhance an outdoor or indoor ceremony and reception venue. It doesn't matter where the ceremony is held whether it is in a tree lined park with green rolling hills, the backyard of the family home, on the beach, in a church or hall.
Once the chairs are arranged, there are a few things that you can do to create a sense of intimacy.
Tulle can be used to make cheap wedding chair covers and pew decorations.
It is inexpensive and adds an instant beauty when wrapped or tied to the backs or sides of chairs in a swag fashion. Instead of a wedding chair cover, cut a 2 meter (6’) length of tulle and tie it around the chair back finishing it off as a big bow. Dress up the bows with cones of fresh flowers, silk flowers or greenery.
It can become quite expensive to have a florist do the flowers for the chairs. To save on cost ask family and friends if they can supply you with flowers from their garden.
Another cost saving tip is to decorate every second or third chair or just run the flowers down the outside chairs of the center aisle.
You can hire wedding chair covers and wedding chair decorations from specialist hire stores.
5 Wedding Chair Decoration Ideas
- Wide satin ribbons can also be used to make chair bows and finished with flowers.
- Lengths of satin ribbon can be used as a swag down the center aisle and use a single flower at the points where the swag meets the top of the chair.
- Decorate the back of chairs with a length of tulle. Start from the bottom of the chair legs and criss-cross the tulle until you reach the top of the chair (just like a ballerina would do to lace up her shoes). Secure the tulle by wrapping it around the top bar in the center and knot if off at the back. Finish off with a ribbon bow or flowers.
- Use a wide satin ribbon. Make a large bow with five or six loops have the tails of the bows almost reach the floor. Cut the tails so that they are all at various lengths. Then pin on flower heads to the bow tails. Secure to the outside edge of the chair.
- Paper cones filled with flowers or rose petals make a lovely decoration on the back of the chair or at the end of the row.
