We tossed around the idea of chair covers… the GTB was hesistant ($1,000 for something people won’t even remember?!) but I went ahead and decided that we need to have them… the chairs at the reception hall we’ve chosen is too ugly. So I started searching… and came up frustrated, wanting so much to avoid ridiculous charges and fees.
There’s Festivities, which doesn’t list any prices online — blah.
Lasting Impressions has limited colors, though they say they can special order any color and their prices are decent, $1.95 for cover, sashes are $.95-$1.35)… so the prices aren’t too shabby.
Apres has a mind-boggling selection of linens, but the prices far exceed the meager amount I would spend. I guess I could beautifully cover the head table chairs, or maybe one chair at each table
So… I decided to give the interwebs a shot and found Urquid Linens. If you keep thinking Urquel, like Steve Urquel, you’re not alone.
Anyway, they had a special going on — each chair cover with sash was $2. Wow. So I ordered 200 (naturally) with shipping both ways, it was around $550, which is pretty spectacular.
Their customer service is pretty excellent (Tiffany responded to all emails in no time) and they sent me samples of their available fabric, which I could keep (in case we need a spare sash, I suppose).
