Rustic Chairs for Your Wedding

Chairs are an important fabric for your décor to set the tone and character that you intend in the wedding. Overlooking the essential role that chairs and tables play in setting the character is a common mistake by brides and grooms. The chairs should be one of the first pieces of décor to take into consideration when planning the wedding as they tie in the overall wedding theme. The right choice of chairs anchors the other key elements of the wedding theme and offers the opportunity to fine tune the other fine details of the décor.

Let’s take a look at some of the most popular chairs for your rustic or vintage themed wedding that we think will give your wedding the best possible vintage look.

White Wooden Folding Chairs

Also known as Wimbledon chairs, the white wooden folding chairs are a classic essential for an outdoor vintage themed wedding. Not only are these chairs perfect for your outdoor wedding ceremony, they are also one of the best fits for the wedding reception.

Your guests will have a comfortable and stylish seating, whether the wedding will take place outdoors or indoors. In addition to their impressive ability to capture the rustic wedding theme, the white wooden folding chairs are very versatile. They can be folded after your ceremony and the area can be easily cleared out for the reception and other activities. This is particularly helpful if your wedding area is in multiple areas and if you need to remove chairs for the evening reception.

For extra comfort, our white wooden folding chairs are fitted with a faux-leather seat pad for a comfort.

These chairs are a classic option that will beautifully complement a wide variety of our round tables, particularly our limewash dressed trestle tables and rustic trestle tables. Limewash is a vintage European style finish that is characterised by striking hues and earth tones.

The Chiavari chair is arguably the most widely popular chair for wedding ceremonies. This is basically why Chiavari chairs are commonly referred to as the classic wedding chairs and the Tiffany chairs. It is the preferred choice for chairs in traditional weddings since they work perfectly for that rustic and vintage style wedding.

For the perfect match, choose the right colour and style of our limewash Chiavari chairs and other interesting pieces that complement the style for an assorted feel.
