What do you think about using pinwheels at a wedding? Whimsical and fun or cheesy?
I truly believe when it comes to weddings, it’s the small details that make a wedding stand out from the rest! Many brides decide to decorate the reception chairs with covers and sashes but have you thought about a unique way to set the bride and grooms chairs apart from the rest? Or maybe forgo the traditional chair covers and sashes and decorate them with something unique? Here are some of my favorite ideas to decorate your reception or ceremony chairs.
Ribbon or pieces of fabric tied to the backs of the chairs make the perfect chair decor. Choosing colorful fabric or ribbon can be a great way to add some color to a simple chair!
For a rustic or vintage wedding try doilies!
Of course signs are a great way to distinguish the bride and grooms chairs!
Or instead of a sign make a clever banner!!
My favorite new way to decorate chairs (among other things) is pinwheels!
Even use one with a sash to totally change up the look!
