Wedding Chair Decoration with Flowers

Flowers often play a huge part in weddings, why not in wedding chair decoration as well? If you are having a garden themed wedding, you can consider draping the backs of your chairs in green garlands. For pops of color you can add seasonal blossoms to create more elaborate and sweet smelling garlands your guests will enjoy. If you’d rather not drape the chairs with flowers, you could consider elaborate flower arrangements to sit behind the chairs. A large and attractive flower decoration behind the seats of the couple especially, will create a lavish decorated seating. Elevating the flowers will lend to the beauty of the arrangement. Either way you are sure to end up with a pretty and inviting garden party wedding scene.


Wedding Chair Decorations Ideas with Ribbons and Tulle

For a more unconventional and luxurious look, you could consider draping your chairs in flowy tulle. Hold together seductively with silky ribbons for a fancy design. The chairs for the couple can also hold little signs featuring hand painted detailing. Signs can bear sentimental phrases like ‘together forever’, or the simple ‘Mr and Mrs’. Complete your wedding reception chair decorations with bouquets of pretty pink roses and lush greenery tied in with the silky ribbons for a most adorable finish. Your wedding colors or chosen color palette can determine your choice of flowers for the wedding reception chair décor.



Outdoor Wedding Chair Decorations  

Outdoor wedding chairs decoration ideas can be just as pretty and elaborate as those for indoors, if not more. An outdoor wedding provides more options and variety of chair decoration for weddings.

Simple Chair Decor

The beauty in simplicity and minimalism can be seen in certain wedding ceremony chair decorations. A simple wreath can completely change the look of a wedding ceremony chair. String a single ribbon through a needle wreath and hang behind the chairs of the newlyweds for a simple and elegant look. This wreath design can be replicated a bit more elaborately when you’re considering wedding reception chair decoration ideas. For something a bit more different, you could alternate between wreaths of white and green blossoms for every chair.

Another option for elegant and simple chair decorations for a wedding is transparent chairs, also known as ghost chairs for the couple. These chairs can be personalized with their initials monogrammed into the backs of the chairs. This is not only a sleek and unique design; it will also make for some of the most beautiful and memorable wedding photo props.
