Different Types of Wedding Chair Covers

Wedding Chair Covers

Wedding chair covers are a great addition to a party rental business or an event venue. Not only does it help increase your average invoice size but also increase your existing event chair investment. There are many different types of wedding chair covers that exist on the market – so understanding the difference between them is important for best meeting your needs. Check out the differences below:

Polyester Banquet Chair Covers

Generally made of a 180 gsm polyester fabric, polyester banquet chair covers offer a casual look to round or square backed banquet chairs. The most popular polyester banquet chair cover is for the tear drop backed banquet chair. The chair features a round back and looks great with a chair cover on it – to dress up the event.

Spandex Banquet Chair Covers

Spandex banquet chair covers are generally made of 190 gsm spandex fabric. They offer a more sleek, contemporary look for event chairs. The most popular spandex banquet chair covers is for the tear drop backed banquet chair. The chair has a round back and can easily be laundered. They’re a breeze to put on and need no ironing to attain that picture-perfect look.

Satin Banquet Chair Covers

Satin banquet chair covers are made of satin fabric. They often are available in a number of colours and give a flowing, elegant look to a banquet chair. They tend to have a shine to them and reflect light well.

Spandex Folding Chair Covers

Spandex folding chair covers are similar to the spandex banquet chair covers in that they are also made of 190 gsm spandex fabric. They tend to fit a standard Samsonite style plastic folding chair – however there are also others that fit the more industrial style metal folding chairs. The spandex folding chair covers are great for dressing up a standard folding chair.

Universal Chair Covers

Universal chair covers work with any chair as they can be tied at the back to make the fit a more slimming line. Because of its universal fit, it is a very easy to use chair cover. Simply place over the chair, tie and go.

Chiavari Chair Covers

Chiavari Chair Covers tend to be sheer in design to allow the elegance and luxury that chiavari chairs are synonymous with shine through. They’re often embroidered, ruffled, or feature a sash to add a bit of extra pizazz to the event without allowing the Chiavari Chair to be seen.

Alternatives to Table Skirts

Table Skirting

Table Skirts used for events, buffets and registration tables are a great way to provide a clean look while allowing hidden storage for staff members. And while they are often fantastic at ensuring extra dishes and cutlery can be hidden for buffets, their ease of use is not always a walk in the park. Most hotels, banquet halls and golf courses that I know of tend to put their table skirts on and leave them on for prolonged periods of time. This is because if they’re ironing them in-house they are not the easiest linens to iron. They also have to be put on with table skirting clips which is another added expense – and not always easy to find. Because of this, I thought it makes sense to point out other options that can be used instead of table skirts. Check them out below:

Fitted Tablecloths

Fitted Tablecloth

Available in Black or White in both 6ft x 30” and 8ft x 30”, fitted tablecloths are a great alternative to table skirts. Available in 180 gsm polyester, 8ft fitted tablecloths are idea for buffet or display tables and catering companies. They’re stain resistant and flame retardant with a hemmed edge and seamed design along the tabletop. They’re 100% machine washable and iron-able.

Polyester Tablecloths:

Available in 60” x 102”, 60” x 126”, 90” x 132” and 90” x 156”, polyester tablecloths can also be used to give storage space while presenting a streamlined tablecover. Available in 180 gsm polyester, they’re stain resistant and flame retardant with a hemmed edge. They’re 100% machine washable and iron-able. Polyester tablecloths can be pinned at the corners or “boxed” to look similar to a fitted tablecloth. For directions how to box a tablecloth, check out this post and video.

Do Spandex Banquet Chair Covers Fit Bistro Chairs?

While I would love to have a spandex chair cover that is a one size fits all solution, the fact of the matter is it isn’t a one size fits all solution. Spandex folding chair covers don’t fit banquet chairs and spandex banquet chair covers don’t fit folding chairs. This is because the chairs themselves don’t have a similar shape and the spandex can only stretch so far.

But what about Bistro Chairs? They have a very similar shape to teardrop backed banquet chairs – so it only makes sense we’d be getting questions regarding the spandex banquet chair cover’s versatility. I thought I’d test it out so not only could blog readers could see, but we’d have a reference point to answer potential customers’ questions.

Below is what a spandex banquet chair cover looks like on a banquet chair:

They definitely do not fit perfectly. The back is where the fit is most apparent. The fabric is too loose and gapes while in the front it fits relatively well but the seat is too large. Most discerning brides wouldn’t be happy with this look but if you need to figure out something in a pinch, the chair covers would fit.
