We at Suffolk Chair Covers have put some ideas together to ensure you achieve your vision for your wedding day.
Colour Matching.- Starting with the Chair covers themselves what colour will best compliment your venue. Do you have a blank canvas like a country chic traditional or lined marquee possibly a beautiful hotel with soft muted colours or maybe a venue with a colour theme already in the room.
Your Venue – Does your marquee have an ivory lining or does you venue have ivory linen. If so ivory chair covers are required. If you venue is full of natural light and has white linen, white chair cover will be needed. Whatever you choose make sure you have a look at the cover on a chair prior to booking not only can you ensure the quality you can ensure you are happy with the colour. Avoid looking at a swatch it is always better to see the cover and sash together to get the full picture.
Chair Cover Style and Quality – Do look at the various styles of chair covers that are available. Do you like the sleek look of a lycra stretch cover or does a loose fit chair cover suits your theme. Maybe something a bit different like our new Kylie would suit your venue. Whatever you choose ensure they are the best quality. Simply they need to look fabulous when fitted, a good feel to the material and a lovely thick fabric not transparent. This is particularly important if you are considering a ‘Do it yourself’ solution or ordering on line always request a sample well in advance of your big day. If you want to be really different, chair covers can come in all sorts of patterns from animal print to black and white striped.
Sashes.- Now this is where you can have some fun. Experiment within you colour pallet it does not always have to be identical to you brides maids dresses for example. In fact it does not have to be the same colour on every chair or table.
Sash Materials – There are some fabulous sash materials to choose from it does not always have to be a standard sheer organza sash. Satin sashes give fantastic depth of colour taffeta is rich and very opulent. A well pressed satin or taffeta sash when tied into a bow will give far more definition and look spectacular. As with the chair covers always ensure you see your sashes fully dressed on your covers at your consultation with your chosen supplier prior to booking. As we always say don’t colour match your sashes from a small material sample or swatch. Look at your sash tied in your chosen style dressed on the chair. This is particularly true with organza which looks totally different on the chair. It is a very transparent material so the colour does change completely, it is so much lighter when not folded as it is in many sample books.
Sash Tying styles – Ask your supplier to tie the sash in a variety of styles, bows are lovely but there are so many other options to consider, it could be a simple contemporary style or something more ornate.
Hope that has given you some ideas enjoy your preparation and good luck for your bid day.
