The Finishing Touches: Wedding Chair Back Ideas

Chair backs are a wedding decor item not to be overlooked when planning your reception.  Chair backs can be simple or elaborate, designed just for the bridal party tables or the entire reception seating.

When you are subject to the mercy of what is available at your venue or rental chairs, a little dress up provided by a chair back idea can go a long way.  Trendy right now are Mr. & Mrs. chair back banners.  A fun photo op at the reception for the couple who recently traded “I dos”.

Ellinee.com blog posted a fabulously, fun and glittery DIY chair back banner wedding project idea.  Cash in on this trend at a great value using ribbon, foam board, glue and glitter. Lia from Ellinee.com shares, “what a perfect way to decorate the bride and groom chair with this DIY glitter Mr. & Mrs. chair banner. For these banners I used a very thin foam core so that I could easily glitter both sides of the letters. Just print out the template below onto an 11X17 paper and follow the tutorial below. Glitter on!”

Looking for more wedding chair back inspiration?  Here you go.   Go all out with beautifully, handcrafted individual chairs backs or you can utilize pre-made items into decor.  Picture frames with childhood photos are another take on the popular Mr. & Mrs. banners for the bride and groom’s seats.  Pre-made bouquets, kissing balls or wreathes are affordable items you can purchase in bulk along with silk wedding flowers for table centerpieces.

In the neighborhood for something even easier?  Ribbon is a versatile material, available in a variety of styles, colors and widths.  Ribbon DIY chair backs can be put together on the spot while setting up the reception area earlier in the day or the day before the wedding.  Tips: wrap thicker ribbon around the width of the chair back or hang thinner strands the length of the chair back. For more time savings pre-measure and cut ribbon for easy assembly at the venue.

Chair backs are the final touches that can bring your reception decor all together.  Tie in the colors schemes and styles found throughout your decor and centerpieces to make everything cohesive.  Who knew there were so many options for dressing up a reception chair?  With a little planning no one or no chair will be under dressed for your special day!
