Top 3 chairs for weddings

Top 3 chairs for weddings

Whilst we understand that choosing your wedding chairs will not be right at the top of your priority list when you are planning your wedding, they still need some thought!  Don't leave things until the last minute, especially during busy summer wedding seasons, as you'll be running the gauntlet of disappointment.  And, after all, you'll have enough things to worry about other than your wedding chairs arriving.

OK, so suffice to say that you need to order early.  But in this article today, we're taking a look at the most popular 3 chairs for weddings, and why this is.

Chiavari wedding chairs

You're probably already aware of Chiavari chairs.  Whilst we regularly see some dubious spelling of this product name, such as 'chivari chair', 'chivalry chair' or 'chevari chair', there's no doubt that this style of wedding chair is by far the most popular in the country (and probably the world!).  Open any bridal magazine or go onto Pinterest or Instagram bridal pages and this is the chair that you'll see.  It's classically styled and has the added benefit of being able to be accessorised with flowers or ties and bows, for example, so that your wedding chairs complement your wedding decor.

Within the Chiavari chair sector, the limewash Chiavari is the most popular of all, and you'll find that this particular wedding chair is a mainstay of the events industry, with almost every chair hire company in the UK holding stocks of these.  The Chiavari chair has a wooden frame and is stackable, making it both easy to store and then transport to your wedding venue.

And, better still, because competition to hire  Chiavari chairs to you is so high, typically you will find that the hire prices for these chairs are very competitive and affordable - yet another reason for their popularity!

Light oak cross back chairs

Of course, it's not the case that one style of wedding chair fits all weddings - we do live in 2021 after all!  And that's why the best wedding chair rental companies will offer you alternatives to Chiavari chairs, with one example of this being cross back chairs.

Again, these are wooden framed wedding chairs but - as their name would suggest - they have cross back styling on the rear of the chair, providing both a simple and elegant wedding chair.  You won't find these at every chair hire company, but there's certainly a demand for this chair for weddings and other hospitality occasions.

And, don't forget, in the same way as the Chiavari chair, these chairs use a cushioned seat pad which can be interchanged according to your requirements.  This seat pad is attached to the chair using velcro and the best chair rental suppliers will offer you a choice of colours, as we do here at Event Hire UK.  As you might have guessed, the most popular seat pad colour for weddings is ivory, though come the Autumn, our burgundy seat pads come into their own, as do gold seat pads for Christmas weddings, to give you just a flavour of what we can provide.

Banquo chairs

And in at #3 is the banquo chair - perhaps one that you haven't even considered.  This is a transparent chair, made in polycarbonate and is stackable.  It's not the chair for you if you're going down the route of a classic English wedding, but perhaps might well be if you are holding your wedding in a swanky city centre hotel, and going for the modern and contemporary look.  Who is to say that you have to hold your wedding in a country house, when you've got a whole host of different wedding venues up and down the country to choose from!

OK, so these will cost you a little more than the Chiavari chairs, but the finish that you can achieve is out of this world.  You certainly won't find these ghost chairs at every chair hire supply company in the UK - only a select few will be able to offer these, but once you track them down, you'll never go back!

So, there you have it, the top 3 wedding chairs - hopefully this will help you make your decision when it comes to hiring wedding chairs for your venue when the time comes.  It's worth noting at this point that we could have also included Tolix chairs as an option if you're really looking to go different!

Of course, it might be that your wedding venue is supplying the tables and chairs as part of your wedding package.  If this is the case, then fine - as long as you like them!  And, if you don't, remember that you can easily dress up old, scratched or worn banqueting chairs by hiring stretch lycra chair covers which really do look the part and provide you with a cost-effective way of dressing up chairs to help you achieve the look you want.

And, when the time comes, don't forget that the team here at Event Hire UK is on hand to provide you with the very best in range, service and price when it comes to chairs and other wedding furniture hire.  We have an unrivalled wealth of experience in the hire industry and work with our clients to help them create unforgettable moments.  Don't hesitate to browse and place your secure order 24/7 on our website today and work with the experts - you won't be disappointed!
