When it comes to cheap wedding chair covers, many of you may already be of the opinion that they don't exist. However I’m here to tell you they do, if you know where to look.
Chair covers do look fantastic and really can finish the reception room decorations. That said they are not an essential item and you do not have to use them. Brides tend to either regard them as an essential or not. Personally I thought I wanted them but in the end I opted to save some money and do without them. Guess what? I didn't miss them on the day.
They can also serve an alternate use which is to hide unattractive chairs. So assuming you have booked a venue that doesn't normally cater weddings (and saved yourself a fortune) but their chairs are not great. You may want to spend a little extra to get chair covers to hide the chairs.
There are three options when it comes to cheap wedding chair covers:
Of the two options, buying and then reselling them is probably the least hassle option, although renting them out to local brides means you can rent them several times increasing your return. Yes, this is more hassle as you will have to arrange to deliver them to the various wedding locations, then collect and clean them after each event.
While this method will ultimately be more expensive than buying and then reselling (or renting them on to others) you will avoid the hassle of having to fit, collect, clean the chair covers.
I found DIY chair covers online from £0.90 per chair (DIY rental) or £5.50 to buy.
If you were to buy them and then rent them out you would need to rent them at least 5 times to cover your cost but after that you would be in profit. Or you could sell them and try to recoup your costs straight away.
Regardless of whether you want to buy your cheap wedding chair covers or rent them you should find that online will be your cheapest option. But a word of warning, read the terms and conditions carefully before agreeing anything and get a picture of the covers. Also make sure you know exactly what style of chairs your venue has before ordering or you may order the wrong covers.
Finally don't forget the sashes are
normally extra (typically 30-80 pence to rent) but they are a great way
of tying in your theme colour.
Ultimately when it comes to the hiring or purchase of cheap wedding chair covers the choice is yours, and yours alone. Outdoor wedding locations such as beach weddings can look particularly good when finished with chair covers that tie in with your other outdoor decorations.
If you have decided you do need chair covers you shouldn't be afraid to point this out to the venue and ask them if there is anything they can do to improve their chairs. They may have access to chair covers or offer to get some at a reduced rate. After all the venue will have much better leverage over suppliers to get better discounts that you or I could ever achieve. If not there are loads of suppliers online.
Whatever you decide regarding your cheap wedding chair covers, take your time, check out all the options and make the decision after consulting your budget.
