Product Guide: How to Choose the Right Rental Chair for Your Special Event

By: Marquee Event Rentals

How do you choose the right rental chair or seating for your event? It starts with knowing what your choices are! Marquee’s product guide will provide you with the information you need to make the right decision. From weddings and festivals to sports and corporate events, we have the perfect solution.

Rental Chairs for Indoor & Outdoor Events

Seating is one of the most important and most overlooked aspects of a successful event. When selecting a chair for your event, imagine you are a guest and ask yourself whether you’d be comfortable sitting in that chair for the duration of the wedding, corporate event, or another occasion. Here are a few other important considerations:

  • Will the event be indoors or in a covered area?
  • If the event is outdoors, will the chairs be on an even or uneven surface? Consider renting a floor. Marquee has quite a variety.
  • How long will guests be sitting? Consider padded chairs for seated events longer than one hour.
  • Chairs often appear in event photos so select chairs that complement your event’s aesthetic.
  • Do you need specialty seating such as high chairs, barstools, booster seats, etc.?
  • What will your guests be wearing? Choose a style that will match the tone of the event!

Marquee Event Rentals has one of the largest selections of chairs for rent. Need 4 or 40,000? Here are a few rental chair options for indoor events, or covered outdoor events:

Banquet Chairs
Banquet Chairs are a stackable, armless chair you’ve likely seen in convention centers and hotel conference rooms. Most banquet chairs include a padded seat and backrest for guest comfort and are available in a variety of colors.

Chiavari Chairs
Classic Chiavari Chairs are popular for weddings and can be ordered in natural wood, metallic, and in an assortment of colors. Tie-on seat cushions enhance guest comfort and are available in white, ivory, or black.

Chameleon Chairs
Chameleon chairs get their name from the variety of fabric covers available to suit any event or color scheme. These padded, metal frame chairs can be enhanced with luxury fabrics such as suede or velvet, embellished with a sash, or covered in fabric to match the event’s theme.  

Folding Chairs
By far our most popular chairs are our Folding chairs. They’re budget-friendly and available in a variety of colors to match the theme color(s) of your event. Folding chairs are a good choice for events where a single area will be used for multiple purposes because they can be set-up and stowed quickly.

Mirage Ghost Chair
Mirage ghost chairs, also known as casper chairs or phantom chairs, are made of clear plastic and bring a modern look to any event. Ghost chairs are easy to keep clean and won’t clash with other decor or furnishings.

Rustic Cross-back Bistro Chair
A wooden crossback chair provides a classic, timeless aesthetic to any event. These padded chairs are rustic, elegant, and photo-worthy. Our cross-back bistro chair is a popular choice for garden or vineyard events, and weddings.
