A Guide to Choosing Tables and Chairs for Your Event

One of the most difficult things that you may find about having a party is choosing the right tables and chairs. Whether you’re having a graduation, wedding, barbecue, or another type of party, you want to make sure that you’re having the right tables and chairs for the event. This will help you make sure that everyone is comfortable and that you have enough for everyone. Making your event a success! Below are some tips that you can use for deciding the types of chairs and tables you need and the amount.


When you have an event, you want to make sure that you are getting the chairs that are best for your event. The last thing you want is for your guests to be standing, so you want to make sure that the amount you have is correct. You also want to make sure that you have chairs that are the right style and that will match your tables.

A good choice when it comes to chairs are brown or white folding chairs made of plastic when you have a really big event with hundreds of people. If you’re hosting something like a wedding, this is a good choice.

But if the gathering is going to be more intimate, like a small wedding, a tea party, a baby or bridal shower, a Chiavari chair is a good choice. These chairs are classic chairs for weddings, and they often come with a pad or without one.

Another choice could be loveseats, wooden benches, pallet benches, or leather furniture for renting your chairs. These will be great options when you want to provide a lounging area or you are having a more upscale event.

A third choice could be folding chairs made of resin or wood, since they often will go very nicely when you are having an outdoor event. You can also decorate the chairs, or the rental company can often do that for you.


It’s often hard to decide what you want to do when it comes to tables. There are so many different styles of tables that you can choose from and they also can be covered in lots of cloths so that they can be made more elegant.

If you’re having a family style or more informal event like a reunion or a barbecue, a good choice is rectangle tables usually in lengths of 6 or 8 feet.

With an event that is more formal like a wedding, round tables are a better choice because everyone will be able to see one another a lot better, and they’ll be able to talk to each other. There are smaller or bigger round tables, and you often have options for a table that fits anywhere from 4 to 10 people. You can often find tables that are made just for kids, too. If you’re concerned about sun exposure, some of the bigger tables may come with the option of an umbrella if your event is outside.

The next time that you are having an event, think about how many people are going to be there and what type of event you’re having. Then choose the right chairs and tables for your event.
