Who knew industrial style could be so glamorous? It’s all about shiny metals, rustic finishes and unique lighting. An industrial wedding style needs a lot of space and even more vision, so let’s get started with a little inspiration!

Industrial Style Wedding

The right venue is essential…

We don’t often mention the wedding venue when talking about specific wedding styles, but in some cases it can be the most important decision you’ll make in achieving the look. This is certainly true for an industrial wedding style. Old warehouses and breweries are ideal for achieving the rugged ambiance unique to a factory setting. The high ceilings and large open areas are open canvases for your creativity

If in doubt, search Art Deco…

Art deco style is the perfect inspiration for an industrial wedding theme. Art deco was inspired by the rapid industrialization of the early 1900s. Very popular in the 1920s, 30s and 40s, this glamorous style could be seen in everything from architecture and automobiles to women’s fashion and jewelry (think Great Gatsby). We’ve shown one of our most popular art deco wedding invitations here along with a matching favor box for a fun finishing touch.

Get into the heavy metal…

The heavy use of different metals in warehouses and factories inspires the entire industrial look. All kinds of metals can be found with all kinds of finishes, from shiny to tarnished to rusted — the more worn the materials the better! Our style story uses accents of copper, tin and brushed silver to enhance the wedding cake and table décor.

Spend some time on lighting…

Since industrial spaces are so open and full of eye-catching metals, the right lighting will make the space absolutely dazzling. Strings of white lights, chandeliers and candles are all wonderful ways to shed a little light on your industrial wedding style.
