Theme Ideas: Industrial Chic

An Industrial theme is the latest craze in the world of weddings and we love it! Bare walls, rusty metal, and interesting lighting are the key elements you should work with, and Weddingstar has an amazing range of decorations that will inspire you!

Ambience

Ambience

Industrial chic is going to be one of the most powerful new trends in 2015 and we’ll be seeing more and more couples choosing revamped lofts and warehouses for their wedding venue. This theme allows a lot of creativity and blending together eclectic styles, taking the much-loved vintage theme to a completely new level. This is a fabulous theme for city weddings and we think it is perfect for the autumn and winter season when you need a chic indoor space, but if you find a lovely rooftop venue with industrial flair, it can work for summer receptions as well. Bare brick walls, peeled off paint and metal tubes will immediately create the atmosphere you want and you can add a romantic feel to the space with light bulbs, fairy lights, candles or light boxes. Once you have all the key elements, you can personalise the venue with gorgeous decorations from Weddingstar’s industrial wedding theme collection.

Table Decorations

Table Decorations

To add a personal touch to your industrial wedding venue, use table decorations that correspond with the theme but also reflect your own style. If you love vintage design, we think that Weddingstar’s galvanised flower market bucket is a chic container for long-stemmed flowers which will look great against the naked wall of your industrial-style reception area. You can also use the galvanised tin rectangular planter for amazing flower centrepieces. Another way to decorate your dining area is to use elegant glass bottles for individual blossoms and scatter them across the table. Weddingstar’s glass bottles with ombre smoke decoration are simply ideal for this purpose as the soft grey shade will correspond with your industrial space. A tin box with aged finish and blackboard panel display is a marvellous idea for a wishing well or a unique centrepiece, while the personalised industrial cityscape acrylic sign can be an interesting idea for a head table.

Stationery

Stationery

If you are looking for a stationery design to complement your wedding theme, think motifs like cityscapes and factories or lettering inspired by industrial chic. You can go for modern, vintage or avant-garde styles and look for inspiration in the beautiful public spaces of big cities. We love Weddingstar’s Bistro Bliss stationery collection inspired by old-fashioned menus from French bistros and we think it is flexible, as its simple, but chic, design can fit into a variety of decorative themes. The range includes gorgeous invitations, RSVP cards and save-the-dates, but also thank-you notes, place cards, bonbonniere tags, bottle labels, stickers, directional posters, photo backdrops, cake toppers and rubber stamps. If you want to have the city skyline as the key motif on your stationery, we think you will like the City Style stationery collection.

Finally, to add finishing touches to your reception space, use your imagination and work on the small details. Think how to decorate bare industrial walls without departing from your theme. Discrete ambience lighting could be a good idea and we think Weddingstar’s string of lights with light bulb wire cage battery led will look very elegant. Even the tiny details like table numbers can add quirkiness to the whole décor, and we recommend Weddingstar’s laser cut self standing metal table number set which will really bring an industrial feel to your tablescape, or their lovely acrylic table numbers in word style which will create a more polished look. A great way to pack your wedding favours is to place them inside metal boxes and one of our favourites is the XOXO rectangular tin from Weddingstar. And don’t forget your wedding cake! You can have cake decorations and frosting in metallic colours and then finish off the look with a statement topper such as the City Style personalised clear acrylic block cake topper.
