Mr. Caro and I will be celebrating our wedding in a converted church. It took us a while to find the right ceremony venue but we are very happy about our final choice: we think this church has a great intimate vibe and it fits our style perfectly.
The only thing I do not like about it is”¦ the transparent chairs”¦
Don’t get me wrong: I think transparent chairs look really chic and cool in the right ambiance! I just don’t think the intimate and historic atmosphere of the church fits well with those stylish contemporary chairs for our wedding”¦
Renting new chairs or chair covers is out of the question. I don’t dislike those chairs so much to be able to justify spending money on them. However if I could find an easy and cheap way to make them look just a bit nicer, that would be great!! Do you have any ideas on how those chairs could be decorated to help them fit better in the church for a more rustic wedding vibe? Or do you think they look nice, and I’m over-thinking it?
And as quid pro quo, here is a selection of my personal favorites when it comes to chair decor. Unfortunately none of these ideas fit the form of the chairs above, but I hope you can find them useful!

- IÃ¢Â€Â™m an American-Italian girl living in Germany with my Belgian fiancÃƒÂ©, planning a wedding in Italy. I canÃ¢Â€Â™t wait to show our guests the wonderful Lake Garda, Verona, and want our wedding to be a fun filled, charming, day in the life of Ã¢Â€ÂœLa dolce vita.Ã¢Â€Â Mr. C and I love spending time together, and have added wedding related activities to our cooking nights, dance lessons, and road trips. We love sampling restaurants, could listen to Sinatra all day, and are just a tad geeky and into technology. As we want all of our passions to be part of our marriage, what better way to start than by incorporating them in our wedding day?
