Wedding chair decorations ideas - Pink wedding sashes on white chairs.

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 centre aisle. You can hire wedding chair covers and wedding chair decorations from specialist hire stores.
