Decorate Your Chairs Using These Lovely Ideas

The best weddings are born out of beautiful details.

You can have the most amazing venue and the most designer-esque wedding dress in the world – but if your wedding day details aren’t aligned with your vision and theme, you will fall short of that “special vibe” all weddings should have.

That isn’t to say you should obsess over everything – but a couple of well-placed details can go a long way when it comes to creating the right atmosphere.

Take chairs, for example. Have you considered decorating them?


If yes, you should definitely steal some inspiration from the following 2019 wedding chair ideas – they are lovely!

  • Wooden “Mr. and Mrs.” signs. This one’s already a classic among rustic chic wedding planners and decorators – but it’s so pretty we can’t let it go! For a touch of uniqueness, add a long drape of tulle to the “Mrs.” chair (to resemble a wedding veil). It will look fun, playful, and romantic at the same time – exactly what you are looking for!

  • Flower garlands. This is such a superb idea, especially with spring and summer weddings right around the corner! Coordinate your chair garlands with the wedding flowers included in the centerpieces and bouquets to create a cohesive and elegant atmosphere.

  • Macramé. Some say macramé is the new chalkboard-and-cute-message in terms of garden wedding décor. Truth be told, macramé can look absolutely dreamy when used in the right places – and your sweetheart chairs are definitely among the best spots for this kind of décor. Even the simplest wooden chairs will be upgraded with a delicate and personal touch by the simplest macramé hanging on their backs!

  • Say it your own way. Cute wedding signs are always adorable – but when they reveal part of the love story behind the wedding, they are even better! Hang small framed messages in your native language to celebrate your ancestry, to make your moms cry, and to make for excellent wedding photos that will complement the visual story of your Big Day. It’s an easy way to create something really special for your bride and groom chairs.

Remember: no matter what trends might say, your wedding is yours. So if you want balloons, twinkly little stars, or paper flowers to decorate your wedding chairs because they feel closer to who you are, then go for it. This is how original weddings happen!
