From the Bed to the Aisle, or How Mattress Covers Became Wedding Ceremony Material

Normally people use mattress covers for an added layer of comfort when sleeping, or to protect a bed from spills, urine and odours, correct? Well, one of our inventive clients came across a brilliant idea last year, to party with our mattress covers!

Flat Mattress Cover

No, she isn’t crazy, although her idea may seem so at first glance. More specifically, she decided to use the mattress pad covers as seat covers for a wedding.

With a penchant for fun and creative ideas, Parisian professional event planner Christine Lecombre ( ) demonstrated an innovative and inventive solution for today’s weddings. Hired by a bride-to-be without the means to spare on extra expenses, Christine was instructed to find a way to make the community centre where the wedding would be held look more appropriate for the event. The design of the building itself was modern, which didn’t bug the bride horribly, but the style of chairs seemed the most out of place and bothered her — a not very aesthetically pleasing plastic  typical of the 1970s. If Christine could find a solution to cover the chairs, and quick, the wedding would be a hit, and the day would be one the couple would never forget. If not, Christine might have lost the job and the couple would have fonder memories of their honeymoon than the actual ceremony.

Wedding Ceremony Seat Covers

Luckily, Christine stumbled upon Caractère’s disposable flat mattress pad sheet covers just in time for the big day. The single/twin size covers were the ideal size and shape for the chairs. Their soft, breathable material made the wedding significantly more comfortable for the guests. As an added bonus, since Cristine had 100 chairs to cover, by purchasing two sets of 50 covers in bulk she saved roughly £20 over five sets of 20 sheets. Every little bit helps when planning events on a budget! The bride’s parents were surprised by how quickly, easily and affordably Christine was capable of adapting the room to the event. Finally, you can rest assured the bride loved Christine’s economical and elegant solution. Plus, the sheets are 100% recyclable, so there was no feelings of guilt about damaging the environment.
