It can be a little overwhelming when it comes to choosing chair hire for your wedding day, especially if you are looking to hire several for different uses throughout the day. This article summarises the most popular chair hire options for specific uses on your wedding day. Keep in mind that most chairs can be used for multiple purposes, this is just highlighting the most popular.

Wedding ceremony chair hire

For most wedding receptions Tiffany Chairs, Bentwood Chair and Folding Chairs are hired. These are the most picturesque chairs for your ceremony and look beautiful on their own, or with some floral arrangements down the aisle.

White Plastic Function Chairs are also a popular choice for hire, especially if your ceremony is outdoors and you don’t plan on it taking too long. These are a sturdy option, being able to carry up to 150kg.

Cocktail hour wedding hire

Whilst most of your pre-reception cocktail hour in Brisbane will likely be spent standing and mingling, it’s always advisable to provide some seating for your guests. Having mixed seating during cocktails generally sets the best ambience, and is a sure way to cater for all of your guests. Most cocktail hours will have some basic high tables and chairs and some lower options too such as benches and couches, or a few round tables and folded chairs.

Reception chair wedding hire

It’s hard to go wrong with hiring any of our available chairs for your wedding reception. When the whole room comes together, and you have a suite of chairs arranged throughout, it looks better than you could have imagined in all your planning. Tiffany Chairs look the most classic when together in a room, the Folding Chair has a more classic modern feel and the Bentwood Chair is a more sturdy structure, being the widest of chairs available. For a modern and more sophisticated look, we love the range of Victorian Chairs.

Similar to cocktail hour chair hire, it’s a nice touch to have some other chairs available throughout the space for once everyone has finished eating and will be dancing and mingling. A few high tables and bar stools are easy to place around, and if you have the space, an area with some ottomans or couches is great to offer for guests to relax.
