How to Hire Wedding Chairs

White Tiffany chairs may seem like a minor detail, but they can have a big impact on the vibe of your event. So if you’re planning to go beyond your venue’s basic folding chairs, it’s worth getting familiar with the different styles available and their associated costs before contacting local rental companies.

The most popular seating options include folding chairs, which can be as plain or fancy as you like (and range from around $1 to $3 each) and ghost chairs, a modern option with rounded backs that blend in with many decor themes. They’re typically seen in clear, but you can find lucite versions in opaque black, translucent gray, pink, and blue for more of a statement look.

You may also want to consider wooden slotted chairs, which are often found on cafe sidewalks and offer a sleek, European aesthetic. These are perfect for a rustic or garden wedding, and can be styled with seat cushions in your wedding colors. Cross-back chairs are another option for a rustic-themed wedding and can be decorated with the telltale ‘X’ that identifies them.

For a more traditional look, you can also try bamboo chairs or wrought iron chairs that are often seen at garden weddings. Both options are less expensive than ghost chairs, and you can find them with a wide array of back shapes and colors to match your wedding colors. However, be warned that these chairs are not as comfortable as banquet-style seats and you may wish to use them only for the ceremony or cocktail hour.
