How important are chairs? Venue I love only has folding grey chairs...would these work if decorated with a sash or better to hire in banqueting chairs??

They should be fine. Youre probably the only one that will remember the chairs anyway. I dont think people will take much notice xx

I hired chairs, they didn’t work out very expensive. I didn’t want chair covers and our venues chairs weren’t the best

Hire chair covers instead as cheaper than chairs or use sashes .....avoid money going up ! Xx

Personally I'm not a fan of chair covers as some people are suggesting. I'm not a big fan of how they look (but understand it if they look nicer than and old stained chair) and I like to sit with my feet under the chair which chair covers don't allow you to do. If your chairs suit the venue then they would probably look fine with a sash on them as a bit of decoration and would look more unique. It all comes down to whether you like them and think they would suit your wedding. Chairs don't need to look a specific way just because it's a wedding.

If budget allows hire chairs

Our venue had basic chairs but we weren't going to spend anything that was unnecessary. No one will remember the chairs. No one is looking at the chairs.

Trying to find photos from our wedding that had chairs in them is actually really challenging! They're chairs. Can you remember all the chairs you sat on at various weddings? It's just something else to spent money on

I personally was really fussy with chairs. I hate chair covers so I made sure I had nice wooden chairs. X
