If you’re trying to choose the perfect dining chairs to suit your wedding style or didn’t even know you had options, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve put together a guide to the most popular dining chair styles for weddings which is just want you need if you’re considering swapping out your venue’s banquet chairs and renting your own chairs. Beautiful seating can really complete your tablescape and add to the overall wow factor in a room.
All you have to do is choose a style you love. But who knew there were so many? The good news is that all of the below styles are available to rent, so take a seat and get ready to feel inspired!
The most popular wedding style is certainly the Chiavari chair. This wooden style is favoured for being simple yet elegant. Usually available in a variety of colors, it’s an incredibly versatile choice. The faux bamboo style comes in light and dark wood shades as well as white and gold. These work perfectly for the ceremony and reception, and are quite easy to transfer. They’re also so easy to decorate and can be dressed beautifully in voile, signage or floral arrangements.
For the modern, minimalist look – transparent ghost chairs make for a sleek seating addition. Made of acrylic, the most popular choice is clear, but black opaque and grey are also seen. They are difficult to dress, but perfect if you’re seeking a subtle but stylish chair that lets everything else pop.
For garden and outdoor weddings, the folding chair is the perfect informal choice! Easily transferable from ceremony to reception, these are ideal for a more relaxed vibe. Again, these are super easy to accessorise with foliage, flowers and signage.
Thinking of a ristic theme with a sophisticated touch? We love the cross-back chair! This style can suit any venue or location – from an outdoor wedding ceremony to a marquee, conservatory or barn. With the addition of a cushion, the cross backs add country character and simplicity.
Cane Back Chairs
Creating a luxurious look, we recommend the cane back chair for a vintage or old world weddings. We love it for settings like outdoor upscale chic.
Keeping with the luxurious theme, let us introduce you to the Bella Chair, an opulent choice for a lavish wedding theme. With a soft white velvet seat and gold-rimmed back, it pairs immaculately with gold accents such as utensils, chargers and tall floral centrepieces. It also comes in black velvet.
