Sitting Pretty {Part 2}

So yesterday I shared my views on wedding chairs, and more importantly the trend that has developed in covering up wedding chairs with chair covers and chair sashes.

It’s fair to day I’m not a fan – of the sashes in particular –  I think a good chair should be shown off and used wisely as part of the overall look of a room.

I also shared {Part 1} of my ideas on how to style wedding chairs, including hiring in your own chairs or collecting mismatched vintage ones. Now for {Part 2} and we’re talking garlands and ribbons.

? Hang homemade chair garlands

You can get really creative with your wedding chair garlands to hang across the backs of each chair, using anything from paper signs to printed programes, doily garlands, old lace or try making your own series of pinwheels in bright colours. Check out Etsy for a great selection of ready-made ones, or try vintage style bunting hanging across the back of each chair.

? Decorate chairs with ribbon, feathers or burlap

Bunches of co-ordinating ribbons flowing from the back of each chair look super-cute, as do ribbons mixed with dried flowers like lavender, and just think how fabulous the room will smell too.

Burlap and feathers make a much more stylish alternative to the organza sash, I just love this image on the bottom right. Makes me think of beautiful ballerinas.

There are still more ideas to come as I share with you a little more inspiration and advice on how you can creatively and stylishly decorate your wedding chairs in {Part 3} tomorrow.

Do you have a strong view on the wedding chair, or are you happy with whatever your venue provides?. I’d love to hear your views.

So this is the #wedding show that gets everyone talking, I'm hoping to make the trip to #london for it next weekend. Anyone going who fancies meeting up for coffee/cocktails and a natter, hit up my inbox, let's chat. #weddingplanner #weddingplanning #weddingstyling #mostcurious
It's Friday whoop whoop! Balloon arches are cool again thanks to @houselarsbuilt #wedding #weddingplanner
Loving all the pastel popping up on the runways. It doesn't have to be sugary sweet it's all in the application. #wedding
Sometimes we just need a little reminder. We're definitely dreamers and proud of being so, constantly thinking up new and better ways of doing things, thinking about how we can improve & what we want to achieve. Tag a friend who needs reminding of this. 👇
Oh @Dior how we love thee. Industrial scaffolding contrasted with delicate pastel pink & shimmering mirrored walls. So inspiring
Working on something a little different in the studio currently. Incorporating the family tartan of one of our #wedding grooms and the brides love of fresh green.
Gamechanger! @hemsleyhemsley #healthyliving #hemsleyhemsley #spiralizer
So I'm honoured to have been nominated for the #20BeautifulWomen challenge, but being the inquisitive creature I am I wanted to understand what it was for & how it started but it seems it's a bit of a mystery. Maybe something to do with the book by Saba Tekle via @huffingtonpost or simply to celebrate women who are beautiful inside and out: visionary, kind, inspiring and empowering women. So yeah I'm all up for that. Author of said book defines a beautiful woman as this: "A beautiful woman shares her story so other women won't feel alone. A beautiful woman is peaceful: she has made peace with her past. A beautiful woman is passionate: she is on fire with a strong desire to change the world. A beautiful woman is purposeful: she knows why she was born and does what she was created here to do. Be beautiful." My 20 beautiful & inspirational ladies are all tagged in - I tried to cheat and add more but it won't let me!
Could not be more excited for my gorgeous client #augustbride #Repost @object_style with @repostapp.
