If you’re sitting at a sweetheart table (just the two of you) or the head table (you, your new spouse, and the entire wedding party), you’ll want something to designate the two chairs that are yours.
Obviously, the two in the center of any head table are reserved for the bride and groom, so it’s unlikely anyone will, you know, accidentally sit down and steal your seat.
But maybe you’re planning a less formal table set up, or something unique like farmhouse tables and there’s no real “main” table. One way to make it known where you’ll be sitting is with a pair of chair signs for the backs of the chairs.
Many couples use chair signs to dress up the head table or sweetheart table, too, so you can use them solely for the purpose of decor. Honestly, as a decoration and purely for photo ops are two of the main reasons people buy chair signs for wedding receptions anyway. :)
