While we love a crop top wedding dress, one-tiered cake, and man bun as much as the next wedding bloggers, we’re not really ones for dictating when a trend is over, and ready to hit the nuptial scrap heap.

Except for one. Those fancy, fussy, traditional chair covers with the fancy, fussy bows.

We know some people love them, but for us, they’ve had their day in the sun.

We reckon it’s time for something altogether more creative, fun, and bespoke. And we’ve rounded up some gorgeous ideas (32 of them in fact!) just to prove it to you.

Creative Ways To Decorate Chairs

Whether you simply adorn the back row of your ceremony or the seats along the aisle, go all out decorating your reception chairs or make a statement for the happy couple, the options are endless for creating something special to sit your tush on, on your big day.

Chairs might not seem like the most important detail, but individual chair decor is such a nice touch for a small wedding, and for bigger bashes, little accents on chosen seats will look beautiful in a sea of chiavaris, banquet chairs, or fold-out seats.

With foliage, flowers, signage, ribbons, and fabric to choose from, it can be hard to decide what kind of chairs will work for your wedding, so to help you on your way, scroll down through our picks for inspiration.

And don’t forget to pin your favourites!

Some really gorgeous ideas, right? I love the idea of having signage or special seats for a few VIP guests, it’s a perfect substitute for a head table.
