The look and feel of your wedding reception can be drastically altered with one décor element: seating. Though wedding events with traditional event chairs can be absolutely beautiful, a wedding event becomes extraordinary with the addition of gorgeous and unique chairs.

Event rental companies, such as Chameleon Chair Collection, Luxe LinenNüage Designs, and Revelry Event Designers, provide a variety of beautiful linens and/or furniture ideal for weddings, including dining chairs, settees, benches, and more. For a spring or summer outdoor celebration, try seating guests around long family-style tables with a mix of chairs and benches. Complement a black-and-white wedding theme with chic, mismatched chairs with various chair back designs in ebony hues. Love gold? Choose a gilded wedding color palette with seating featuring blush or ivory cushions with bullion chair backs.
