We all know how obsessed some brides are when it comes to wedding decor so let us not forget about details such as the important chairs that guests sit on. Often, the ones found in Hong Kong venues are covered with gaudy material that makes me want to scream. You don’t need to be a DIY queen or spend hours trawling through Etsy to find the perfect chair back sign or garland; it’s as simple as buying some fabric to tie into a bow (avoid organza on top of an existing fabric chair cover because that just cheapens the look) for an elegant touch or decorate with ribbons to add a bit of whimsy to your big day. And if you’re the lucky few to get some interesting chairs such as the chiavari, then you’ve got even more room to play with. Having an outdoor wedding? Drape a pashmina over the chair to dress it up and double up as a wedding favour for the ladies. Too many guests? Then just decorate the Mr. & Mrs.’ chairs.
p.s. If you’re having a wedding banquet style reception where there’s a lot of manoeuvring, make sure the fabric doesn’t touch the floor. You don’t want the guests or yourselves to trip!
