Love itself is something worthy of celebration, which is why, when it comes to weddings, people spend extra time and care in deciding every detail. The objective is to make the day as special as the couple celebrating their nuptials, but one item that’s sometimes overlooked is the seating at the wedding events.

At every event, it’s always important to have a place for your guests to sit, and this is especially true for weddings. There is no event in your life that will be as photographed as your wedding. Decorated wedding chairs make wedding photos shine and sparkle and add unity and beauty to the event. If you’re creative, it can only take a few small touches to make your guest seating sparkle. Rows of chairs can become a part of the theme and décor.

Here are a few ideas for creative ways to decorate chairs for weddings.

Use fabric to complement the wedding colors

Consider lining chairs with lace or fabric that emulates the aesthetic of the event. This can be done by taking a yard of fabric (such as satin, tulle, or lace), looping it around the back of the chair, and tying it off with a large, colored bow or clip in the wedding colors. Add more fabric for a luxurious, indoor venue and less fabric for a more rustic outdoor wedding. For a simpler look, use just a ribbon in one of the wedding colors and tie a bow on the back of each chair.

Add flower arrangements

Flowers add timeless beauty to wedding seating—at the ceremony, dinner, reception, and other events. You can create bundles of flowers that match the wedding colors and secure them to the backs of each chair with ribbons or pins. You can add flowers to the chairs that line the aisle or on all the chairs. Another option is to create chains of roses or other flowers and drape them between chair rows. Add lights or ribbons to the chain for extra flair. You can also place flower baskets at the end of each row.

Get creative with chair cushions

Look for chair cushions for Chiavari chairs that complement the wedding theme. Many wedding venues offer a variety of decorations as part of the event package, so check to see if they offer chair cushions in specific colors. This increases the comfort of the guests during the ceremony while adding a unique touch. Another option is creating chair cushions that include the wedding couple’s initials, which can be stunning for a head table.

Enhance chairs with beads

Beads are a fun way to add some small subtle décor. Take a string of faux pearls or colored glass beads and string them along the back of the chair from one end to the other. This is a simple way to add the wedding colors and complement the wedding theme.

Create a romantic glow

Whether your wedding will be indoors or outdoors, nothing says romance like the right lighting. Consider lining the aisle of the church with battery-operated candlesticks tied with colored ribbon or old-fashioned lanterns hanging from hooks. Strands of sparkle lights can be used to line the aisles or define the seating area at an outdoor wedding.

Fashion a paper chain

For something more memorable and completely personable, try an interactive paper chain. Give each guest a slip of paper and a pen when they arrive and have them write an encouraging note, prayer, or wishes for the bride and groom. Before the service begins, collect all notes and interlink them to create a paper chain to line the aisle. Not only will this be a wonderful decoration for the aisle, but a fond keepsake the couple can take home.
