If the idea of a traditional style, hotel ballroom wedding doesn’t float your boat, then consider something a little different. An industrial wedding theme is not only right on trend, but it’s also a super chic style that’s very unique and different.
It often calls for city venue with lofty ceilings, exposed brickwork and lots of natural lighting. Think metallics juxtaposed with florals, soft backdrops, draping, paired back table settings, antique style metal chairs and a more casual feel throughout.
It’s a theme that can look visually stunning in photographs and is perfect for those seeking something different.

Location is key for this wedding theme to really work. Think about more unusual venues. The traditional style hotel ballroom don’t truly work with this theme, however you can still bring elements of the look to a venue like this. However, try and source venues that have loftier feels. High ceilings, lots of natural light and exposed brick work really well. Many of these type of venues tend to be in an urban environment too so start your search there.
If venue is king, then lighting is queen with this look. The right lights can set the theme perfectly. Think unusual industrial style lightbulbs suspended from the ceiling. Festoon lighting, string lights or even bistro lights can work really well. Oversized illuminated letter are perfect too and can be stunning in your photographs.
Metal and Flowers
Metal and flowers are the perfect contrast for this type of wedding theme. Try and use them in your centrepieces and accent with candles. Have fun with metal piping pieces as candlesticks, lightbulbs filled with florals, lanterns and old tins. You could even paint bottles or mason jars with metallic paints instead of going for traditional metallic features. Also why not think of metallic chairs and tables?
There are many facets of an industrial theme that can seem harsh, so it’s important to juxtapose those with something softer. So why not consider having a backdrop of flowers to offset the brick and metallics? Or consider adding some draping with soft material. Streamer style backdrops work well too, interspersed with softer smaller fairly lights too.
