How do you decorate and dress up your wedding chairs? We hear you asking and we’re here to answer. You won’t find any wedding chair covers here. Not that we’re against them! By all means, have Your Day, Your Way! But whether it’s for your ceremony or your reception, getting the wedding chair decor to suit the vibe of your wedding day is another step to getting that perfect ambience. So here are some of our tried and true fave wedding chair decor ideas!

Wedding chair decor ideas for every kind of wedding!

Wedding Chair Sashes

Sashes are great for any kind of wedding. These images are taken from luxury country house weddings, autumnal barn weddings, and marquee and hotel weddings. So, it's safe to say no matter your wedding style, these would work for you. This is why we put them first in the roundup! They're simple and not time-consuming to do if you need to decorate the venue yourself. They also add the right level of elegance and make the chairs look more 'wedding-ready'.

Wedding Chair Ribbons

Ribbons or streamers are perfect for a non-traditional wedding. Are you looking to add some colour? Some fun? And a whimsical vibe? Then ribbons or streamers are absolutely a no-brainer. You could choose the colours of the ribbons or streamers to match the colour palette of your wedding and strengthen your overall vision of the day. Similarly, do the opposite! If you're going for an all-white wedding add some pretty pastels or neon brights for some fun pops of colour.

Wedding Chair Flowers

These wedding chair flowers are an excellent choice for the end chairs on the aisle at your ceremony. Whether you do or don't have flowers lining the aisles, adding some small floral arrangements to the chairs at the end is such a nice subtle touch. Have them match the wedding bouquets for some extra coordination! It'll look amazing in your wedding photos!

Simple Wedding Chair Decorations

Not into all the extra stuff? No problem! Stick to name tags and signs for your wedding chair decor. You can do this at the reception or at your ceremony. We're big fans of this as it's also a great way of subtly reserving seats for your close family and wedding party so you don't have to worry about them not finding seats at the front/close to you and your partner!

Wedding Chair Bows

There's something so bridal about bows and we love them at weddings and particularly on wedding dresses! But having them on your wedding chairs is also a great idea. You don't have to go over the top though. If you don't want to decorate every single chair in your reception, just decorate the ones on the top table. Likewise, for your ceremony, you could just do them on the first and last rows or just on the ones you'd like to reserve for immediate family and your wedding party.

Rustic Wedding Chairs

Rustic weddings are one of the most popular styles of weddings, so naturally, we had to include a category just for rustic wedding chair decor! These ideas would be great to DIY if you fancy a bit of macrame yourself! Instead of flowers, add some foliage and keep things more neutral and earthy to match the rustic vibe. This is great if you're having an outdoor ceremony, a barn wedding or are marrying in the autumn months.

Styling your chairs adds so much to the ambience of your wedding ceremony or reception. The little details add up!

Hopefully, now you have an idea of how you'd like your wedding chair decor to look for both your ceremony and reception. Don't forget to consider your wedding signage! Here are the five signs you need for your wedding day. Also, it's always nice to give a little something to your guests, so take a look at our unique wedding favour ideas.
