Hi, I'm making all of the decorations for my wedding next year to save money and for general fun and satisfaction.
However i'm having a bit of difficulty working out how i could make the chair sashes. I wanted something different to a bow and love these.
I've tried a technique i was taught at GCSE of making a circle of fabric with a hole in the middle and cutting in to it to make a spiral effect, but it's not quite gave the look i had hoped, unless i'm doing it wrong?

Could someone please give me advice?
Thanks

My best guess would be to make a t shape: the height should be as tall as the chair, and width of the vertical as wide as the chair, the horiz bar at the top should have enough height to fold over the top (then you bring the T-bar together in the back and tie with other attached long pieces). You might have to sew it on the sides to stabilize the top. And instead of right angles at the T, you might want to make it a curve instead, not sure about that, best to make the curve first, then you can cut the angles it if it doesn't work out.

I think it's just a straight rectangle of fabric.  Fold one end over the top to the front of the chair, then draw to the back and gather. You can see that the piece covering the back is folded from both sides to the middle.

The ruffles are separate, like ribbons.  I would cut large circles of fabric, then spiral cut them into the ruffles.  Looks like the edges are sealed, maybe by burning?

The "ribbon" resembles a spiral fleece scarf. Like this one:

It's not spiral "cutting", its circle sewing. 
I think you are on the right track!
