Wedding planning is an enjoyable process, or at least should be! It usually takes months – and sometimes years – to plan the special day, and there’s always lots of excitement around choosing a wedding venue, cars, flowers, the wedding dress, wedding cake, the bridesmaids and so on….and that’s just a few of them!
It goes without saying, therefore, that hiring wedding furniture will not be at the top of your priority list when it comes to your wedding planning. That said, it certainly needs to be, especially if your wedding venue isn’t supplying tables and chairs as part of your wedding package. Whilst ‘blank canvas’ wedding venues offer you more scope to personalise your wedding, they also need and deserve more thought about the finer details, in order to create the magical day you want.
If you’ve been planning your wedding for a long time, the chances are that you’ll have been getting some inspiration from wedding blogs, Pinterest, Instagram and glossy bridal magazines, for instance. Bear in mind, of course, that not everyone has, what seems like, an unlimited budget when it comes to their wedding, so take inspiration, don’t just try to replicate! What you WILL have seen time and time again are Chiavari wedding chairs in these glossy pictures. The world over, wedding chairs = Chiavari chairs. This is the classic, timeless wedding chair used for traditional weddings (of course, if this isn’t the wedding look you’re going for, then there are other chair options available!)
Due to the fact that you’ll only need Chiavari chairs for one day, the best idea is to hire them, and pretty much each and every chair hire company in the land will carry Chiavari chairs as part of their product range.
So, let’s look in more detail at this phenomenon of Chiavari chair popular for wedding days – why is it so? Well, it’s because of their classic styling, which originated back in the 1900s from a small town in rural Italy, hence the name. These chairs are charactered by their mix of vertical and horizontal spindles on the back of the chair, and many companies will offer you the ability to choose your seat pad colour from their range, meaning that you can tie in your wedding chairs with your wedding decor.
If it’s a summer wedding, many will choose white or ivory seat pads. Likewise, if it’s an Autumn wedding, why not choose burgundy, or even gold if it’s a Christmas wedding! At the same time, the design of the Chiavari chair facilitates the ability to add organza ties, bows and sashes, and even fresh flowers if you wish – the choice is yours!
Better still, Chiavari chairs are often available in different colours and finishes. Limewash Chiavari chairs are by far the most popular, with their neutral colour. At the same time, however, you can also choose from gold, black, natural wood, transparent and even antique-finished Chiavari chairs which provide something unique at your wedding, if this is the route you want to go down.
If you are decided that Chiavari chair hire is for you, then fortunately here in the UK, when the time comes, you have a large choice of companies. A word of advice, though – don’t be seduced by cheap Chiavari chair hire. Ultimately, like anything else, you get what you pay for, and they will be cheap for a reason. Work with a company local to you, which offers a competitive price for a good quality product and service. This way, you won’t be disappointed when your chairs arrive in the lead up to your wedding. You don’t need any more added stress!
Whether you need Chiavari chair hire Manchester, London, Birmingham or indeed anywhere across the UK, choose wisely and work with a company you have faith in – they will make your life much easier!
And all that is left to say is CONGRATULATIONS!
