There are numerous options available in various colors, but the most common styles include the Chiavari chair, the X Back, the Avant Garden folding chair, the Bentwood chair, and the Luxury Stainless Steel chair. Each chair is popular and suits unique venues and different decors.

1. Chiavari Chairs

Chiavari chairs, also known as Tiffany chairs, are the most common chairs in the wedding industry. This style originated in a small town called Chiavari, Italy in 1807, since then it has been an icon in weddings to this day.

Available in various materials such as wood, resin, steel, and aluminum, and colors including gold, silver, champagne, white, black, ivory, mahogany, mocha and other wooden colors, you can choose the one that better fits your venue’s ambiance.

Consider adding Chiavari chair cushions for extra guest comfort.

2. X Back Chairs

X Back chairs have gained a lot of popularity in recent years, especially for barn or rustic weddings. They’re available in a wide variety of colors, from wooden colors to white, black or even metallic colors. For barn style venues, white black and wooden colors are the most common options. And for vineyards choose the mahogany X Back chair.

This design was originally made from hardwood but since their appearance in the event industry, in order to maintain good prices and be able to do mass production, they had to lower the quality of the wood. This decrease in quality led to the need to replicate the design in other, more durable materials such as steel, aluminum and resin.

Each material has its own set of advantages and disadvantages so be sure you understand these and well as your needs before purchasing X Back chairs.

3. Avant Garden Folding Chair

The Avant Garden folding chair is also a very popular chair for outdoor weddings and also for venues with a tight budget. It’s the perfect chair in terms of quality-price ratio. 

You can find them in wood and also in resin but make sure you choose the resin version. They look practically the same but resin ones will last much longer. Available in white, black, mahogany and other wood colors, they are a great choice for ceremonies and outdoor events. They complement great with the nature and are very easy to move around.

4. Bentwood Chair

Bentwood chairs are favorites for outdoor events. Made from wood or steel, they are both available in wooden colors and black. You can also find the steel version in white, ivory, mocha, mahogany and metallic colors.

They blend great with green, brown, and white decorations and enhance outdoor venues beautifully.

5. Luxury Stainless Steel Round Back Chairs

Luxury Stainless Steel Round Back chairs are an excellent choice for modern venues. You can find them with silver or gold finish and diverse colors for the cushions. They are considerably more expensive than the other options above but they are good quality, they will stand up for many years and are very elegant.

The chairs you choose are crucial for setting the tone of your wedding venue, each available in different materials that impact their look and durability. Remember, not all chairs are created equal, so it’s crucial to consider the specifics of each material. Always request a sample before making a purchase to ensure it meets your expectations.
