An industrial wedding is a great theme for non-traditional and unconventional couples who feel that raw spaces, like basements or unique venues, represent them best.

Decorate these spaces with easy finds and affordable materials. Steal these decor ideas that are taking over hunty and rock the industrial wedding vibe in style!
Choosing your Color Palette
The beauty of an industrial space is that it lends itself to any color palette and it makes it truly memorable. Consider the effect you would like to achieve. Boho brides may add whimsical and vibrant pops of color, go for pale blues or neutrals like ivory of gray for a more vintage look, or glamify with metallics. Choose a dark moody color palette for a downright impressive venue decor.
Spectacular Decor for an Urban Industrial Wedding
These raw spaces are non-traditional and unique. Many of them are factories, power stations, old churches, or even lofts with ample and open spaces that can look cold yet sober. They are a total declaration of independence from traditions that allow us to create spectacular effects and dramatic decorations.

The contrast of the hanging chandelier against the galvanized columns and the exposed cement bricks is worthy of the most sophisticated industrial weddings. The flowy pale blue table runner adds a touch of softness to the stark beauty of this old distillery.
