Sash most popular colours

By anne | No Comments

When wedding chair covers first came onto the market, brides were keen to use ribbons that matched the colours of the bridesmaids dresses. That trend has changed somewhat. At the chair cover hire specialists in Leitrim, Wedding Chair Covers, we find that brides are now going for a more neutral look, using the softer shades such as white, pale gold and ivory. We have a bride getting maried next week in the Slieve Russell Hotel. Her bridesmaid dresses are a burnt orange. Because this is quite a strong colour and 280chairs covered with orange ties will be quite overpowering. So we have decided to go with a soft sandy gold colour.

When we look at the sash colours that are hired out for weddings, white , ivory and pale gold are by far the most popular ribbon colours used. Due to the demand in the rent of these sash colours we at Wedding Chair Covers carry a large stock of these at our base in Drumkeeran, County Leitrim.

How to make my wedding look different!!

By anne | No Comments

The introduction of dressing seat covers for weddings within the last few years allowed brides the opportunity to make the wedding reception room really stand out and create that “wow” as the guests walked into the room. Four years on, most people have been at a wedding or several weddings where chair covers have been used and that impressive impact has somewhat diminished over time.

However there is another way to make the hotel function room look dramatic and that is by being creative with the table linen. We at Wedding Chair Covers based in Leitrim and covering weddings in the North West area have seen an increase in the interest brides are putting on the table linen in conjunction with the wedding chair covers.

The Leitrim based company who specialize in hiring chair covers for weddings, Wedding Chair Covers can offer a full range of colourful linens for your wedding from various sizes in table cloths, table overlays and table runners. Examples of recent weddings where coloured linen was used included ivory table cloths that fall to the floor, ivory napkins, black overlays for the black/white themed wedding and the same for the chocolate brown themed wedding. Cloths come in a full range of colours from black, grey, burgundy, purple,duck egg, mocha, kiwi, sandalwood, wild raspberry and ivory. Our aim is to provide a style that suits your special occasion.

So if you are plannig your wedding and are looking for that something special we at Wedding Chair Covers based in Leitrim are happy to discuss with you the new ideas that are always coming onto the market. Anne can be contact on 0719648888 or email

Kilronan Castle weddings

By anne | No Comments

Brides, due to the large numbers that attended the Kilronan Castle wedding fair on Easter Sunday, there may be some of you that attended that we did not get the opportunity to speak to, or due to the volume of traffic there on the day, we were only able to hand out a leaflet to. Many mothers attended on behalf of the future bride, many who were away on holiday this Easter Sunday past.

If you are one of the many people who went home with an armful of wedding promotional literature, then we hope you have the little pink leaflet from Wedding Chair Covers. We are located just 15minutes from Kilronan Castle. We have chair covers in white, ivory and black that fit the chairs there very well and over fifty different colours in the ribbons that are tied around the seat covers. We work very closely with the wedding banquetting staff at Kilronan Castle who know the quality of service we provide. Due to the rich wall and carpet colouring in the wedding function room we find that neutral colours are more popular with Kilronan Castle brides. White, ivory and pale gold ribbons are the most popular colours that brides go with, though having said that we have also used chocolate brown and cerish pink. It is all really down to a matter of personal preference.

Wedding Chair Covers are based in Drumkeeran in County Leitrim. We are happy to meet with you at Kilronan Castle to discuss your wedding seat covers or if more convenient for you we can send you samples in the post. We have a special price with Kilronan Castle of 4euro for cover and sash inclusive of setup and collection costs. For weddings with over 200guests we can offer a discount on this price.

So if you have booked your wedding in Kilronan Castle in 2009 or 2010 and would like to discuss wedding chair covers for your forthcoming wedding please contact or telephone 0872402782. We are at the castle on a regular basis so we are happy to meet with you when we are there setting up the chair covers so that you can see for yourself what the room looks like when dressed for a wedding.

Wedding Seat Covers

By anne | No Comments

Brides as you Google the Internet doing your research on suppliers and items for your forthcoming wedding, can we make a recommendation. When it comes to sourcing suppliers and prices for the seat covers you may wish to hire for your wedding we at Wedding Chair Covers have a little advice for you.

Firstly there is a wide variance in the quality of seat covers out there for hire. So be warned, ask to see a sample so you see the quality and also try the cover on the chairs in the reception venue to make sure they fit properly as there is no such thing as a standard hotel banquet chair, believe me!!

My advice to you is to take 10 minutes to read the blogs I have written over the last 12 months, go through the archived months. There is a wealth of advice there for you. This advice is from Wedding Chair Covers the chair cover specialist in County Leitrim. We have been renting seat covers to brides for 4 years so we know the business of chair cover hire well. We would like to share our experiences with you so that you don’t make any mistakes and are better informed when you rent the seat covers for your wedding.

Please read the blogs, it will be 10 minutes well worth it. For further information on hiring seat covers for your wedding please contact or telephone 0719648888. We are based in Leitrim and service the North West counties of Leitrim, Sligo, Mayo, Longford, Donegal and Roscommon.

Hiring seat covers for weddings

By anne | No Comments

The process in hiring seat covers for your wedding is very easy. We at the chair cover hire company based in Leitrim work along with you as your wedding plans evolve in the months running up to yout wedding.

For example the following scenario is typical of what usually happens. The bride would like to have chair covers for her wedding and has made a provision for them in the wedding budget. She hasn’t an idea of what colours to go with as she will not be looking for her wedding dress or bridesmaids dresses until the winter stock arrives in the shops. We at Wedding Chair Covers based in Leitrim recommend she books the seat covers for her wedding date now rather than leave until the dress colours are sorted. The bride pays a 100euro booking deposit to secure her wedding date in the diary. The bride doesn’t pay anything else until the week of her wedding once she knows her final numbers less the booking deposit.

Wedding Chair Covers based in Leitrim has a large stock in chair covers in white, ivory and black. To compliment the chair covers there are an extensive range in organza sash colours. So when the bride has decided on the bridemaids dress colours and her own wedding dress, usually six to three months before the wedding date, we then start to discuss with the bride seat cover colours and bow colours.

So brides you don’t have to leave booking the seat covers for your wedding until after you get the dresses sorted. We recommend if you have allocated a budget for seat covers for your wedding, then book them now, it only costs 100euro to get the date in the diary, you know you have that box ticked. We can get down to the finer detail once you know what colour scheme you really want in the function room.

Ivory Weddings

By anne | No Comments

We are frequently asked by brides whose wedding dress is ivory and want to carry this colour theme for their wedding, if we supply ivory table cloths and napkins. The answer is YES we do.

Due to the demand in the number of brides getting married in off white and ivory dresses they want to carry this colour theme right through to the hotel table linen. Rather that clashing with the traditional white table linen used in most hotels we at Wedding Chair Covers can supply ivory table cloths, ivory overlays and ivory napkins. We also have a range of ivory chair covers from a pale plain ivory to a deeper patterned ivory damask cover. We also have a deep ivory, almost a cream colour chair cover as another option. To compliment this we have an ivory sash as well as over fifty other colours in organza sashes as well.

So if ivory is your colour theme, please give Anne Hurrell at Wedding Chair Covers a call on 0872402782 or email We are based in Leitrim and cover the north west counties of Leitrim, Sligo, Mayo, Longford, Donegal and Roscommon.
