Like most people, you want to make your wedding day memorable. You have probably spent hours thinking about the perfect color palette to use, the perfect linens, the perfect gowns, the perfect flowers, and even the perfect menu to be served on the big day. One of the details that you should also consider, however, are the chairs. No matter how beautiful the reception setting is, mismatched chairs will stand out like a sore thumb if you do not use the proper chairs that match the theme for your wedding. Here’s how you can rent the best chairs for your wedding.
Color and style. Begin by identifying the theme of the wedding. The wedding theme will usually influence the color palette. If you want to have a classy and elegant wedding theme with cream and royal purple as the primary colors, for example, you should look for high- backed fancy dining chairs with purple details and whose primary color is white. If you want to go for a simpler wedding, on the other hand, you can choose simpler wedding chairs. The point is that the chairs should match the rest of the wedding theme. The chair may seem insignificant for you, but once you factor in the fact that hundreds of these chairs will be scattered all over the venue, you will realize just how important it is to coordinate the chairs.
Local rentals. As much as possible, you should rent the chairs from local rental agencies. When dealing with local agencies, you will have to pay a smaller transportation and delivery fee since the chairs will only have to travel form the warehouse to your reception hall, instead of crossing states and borders. When you rent chairs locally, you also get to check out the chairs in person. Sit on the chair, look at whether the chairs are in good condition or if they are already stained or rickety. Chairs that are rented out from internet rentals will only give you pictures, and not the chance to actually hold and inspect the chairs yourself.
Event length. Also consider how long the wedding reception itself will last. For example, if you plan on an all night wedding reception, you should make sure that you have chairs which are excellently padded and which are wide enough to be comfortable to sit on even after several long hours. Of course, these chairs will likely be more expensive, but a few more dollars for better seating on one of the most important days of your life is usually worth it for most people.
Coverings. Finally, ask the rental agency whether they provide coverings for the chairs. Covers are the easiest way to change the color and appearance of chairs. They also make it easier to decorate the chairs and make it match the rest of the theme. For example, a few ribbons or sashes around the chair can instantly make it look like the perfect dining chair to the ribbon and organza decorated table arrangement.
With these steps, you should be able to select the best dining chairs for your wedding reception.
