5 Ways to Style Your Industrial Wedding Venue

April 4, 2017 | nicole

One trend we’re happy to see sticking around another year is industrial wedding venues. The nontraditional space not only comes with its own personality, but lends itself to a plethora of styling possibilities! Having so many options can make choosing a wedding look a bit overwhelming, so we’ve outlined five of our favorite styles that fit perfectly in an industrial venue. Which one is right for you?

Bohemian Industrial

Bohemian styling is one of the easiest ways to warm up a stark industrial space. Eclectic goods and textured linens add depth and visual interest that is as cool as it is cozy. With a bohemian design, tap into your free spirit as you display décor items from ceiling to floor.

Earthy Industrial

We’re all about a major contrast when it comes to wedding styling, so it’s no wonder we’re crazy about the pairing of natural details with an industrial space. The earthy industrial look is all about making the inside feel like the outside. Bring in your biggest house plants, voluminous garlands of greenery, and all the botanical details you can get your hands on. The more variety and texture in your leaves, the better!

Minimalist Industrial

While other styles on this list focus on filling your industrial space to transform it into something new, a minimalist approach highlights the beauty of the existing architecture. Create clean lines with sleek decor elements like glass or copper vases, dark wood, and single stems. Incorporating metal details is a great way to create visual interest while emphasizing your industrial setting.

Rustic Industrial

Who says rustic weddings have to take place in a barn? Abandoned mills and factories make for a perfect setting when it comes to rustic details, as both have an old-timey, deconstructed look. Rustic styling is all about wood and how you use it, so bring in plenty of wood pieces, whether it be rented furniture or natural décor that you display around your space.

Romantic Industrial

Oh, romantic styling. If there’s a wedding look that melts our hearts every single time, it’s the rich and feminine color palette, lush florals, and vintage-inspired gold details associated with romantic affairs. Look to descriptions in famous love stories for inspiration when choosing romantic wedding decor that really shines in an industrial venue.
