Urban Meets Rustic: An Industrial Wedding Theme
via My Wedding
New year, new trends. 2016 will be a big year for industrial weddings. Say goodbye to all those ruffles and frills, and tone things down a bit with these ideas.
Location, location, location. One of easiest ways to go with an industrial theme is with an urban setting. Lofts or warehouse weddings are popular: high ceilings with rafters or beams, exposed brick, and concrete floors contribute to that metropolitan vibe.
Keep it simple. Often, less is more, and that’s certainly true for an industrial wedding theme. You don’t have to go full-blown minimalist, but don’t overdo it on the decorations. A cityscape or view of the skyline will do the work for you when it comes to getting this look.
You’ll find that suppliers are going with concrete and copper to get that industrial look when it comes to wedding decor. Luckily, this is also easy to achieve with a little DIY: up cycle cans and other household items, invest in some metal paints, and let your creative side shine.
Finally, don’t limit yourself to dark colors, and grunge just to get the look. Many brides are opting to combine the ever-popular rustic, vintage, and shabby chic themes with industrial to soften it and make it more elegant. Flowers and lace will create a beautiful balance of masculinity and femininity, a la industrial chic wedding.
