What are Banquet Chair Covers

When you rent chairs you may decide to dress them up a bit with fabric or skirting. This does more than act as seat covers for chairs at your reception. It can be fully fitted to cover the top back and front down to the legs.

Chair covers are an EZ rental item. Since they are not plastic, the fabric is machine washable & foldable. They are easy to drape over chairs & take seconds. People use chair covers for weddings, birthday parties, and all different types of events.

We recommend getting a universal chair cover meaning it fits more than one style of chair. Universal chair cover slips are removable and stretch over your chair. It doesn’t matter if the chair has a round top or a square top, universal covers fit.

(3) different types of chair covers:

  • chair linen covers

  • spandex chair covers

  • spandex chair cap covers

The chair cap is not as common. It only covers the top & back of the chair. A lot of vendors do not stock any chair caps. It’s less requested so local inventory with vendors may be limited.

Chair Linen Covers 101

Think of this as an oversized pillowcase chair cover. It drapes over your chairs. These do not stretch so the fabric is intentionally made big. These large chair covers come in a few fabric variations.

Type of cloth for linen chair covers:

  • satin chair covers

  • silk chair covers

  • cotton chair cover

cloth chair covers require ironing & folding which takes time

We have also seen couples use chiffon chair covers at weddings. We don’t recommend chiffon or tulle chair covers because the fabric tends to wrinkle more, isn’t flame retardant, & is mostly see-through.

📦 Our most commonly requested style is stretchy lycra chair covers. Let’s talk about the (2) types of covers for chairs that our rentals can fit.

Spandex Banquet Chair Covers

Stretch chair covers are way better than linen because they require less setup & maintenance. You don’t need to know how to fold the chair covers because they are wrinkle-free.

What are banqueting chair covers called:

  • elastic chair covers

  • stretchable chair covers

  • bungee chair covers

  • stretchy chair covers

  • scuba chair covers

  • pop-up chair cover

Universal spandex chair covers fit many chair types. The chair covers stretch over the banquet chairs so they are versatile. Use them as conference & ballroom chair covers. They are sewn to fit tight on almost every chair as long as it doesn’t have arms.

Spandex Folding Chair Covers

How do you decorate metal folding chairs for weddings? It is as simple as renting chair covers for folding chairs. Fold-up chair covers are commonly used for rustic backyard weddings & elegant outdoor ceremonies.

Go from bland to glam with folding chair slip covers. Metal chair covers are the cheapest way to accent your chairs. Slipcovers used for folding chairs install in seconds and our collection comes in a variety of colors.
