The Industrialist

What exactly is an industrial wedding? Well, the industrial revolution may be long gone but industrialism is still around; that is, in places you don’t exactly look when planning a wedding… like manufacturing, coal and steel…

Well lucky for the creative brides out there, an industrial vibe for your wedding can make it a very special and fun day even without all the dainty things we normally think of when we think weddings. Accentuating colors like greys, blacks and browns gives the industrial feel and picking the right “shaped” items (like these pleated dresses… I am obsessed with the one below from BHLDN) can help set the mood… I am practically dying over the reception decor below.. the hanging lantern lights and chandeliers dangling from a warehouse ceiling couldn’t be more perfect, and touches like grey chairs, and a sleek grey program add to the overall feel. Since everything can’t be grey, black bridesmaids dresses (like this one from Badgley Mischka) add a sharper color contrast and one of my favorite picks for this theme is the favors!  I always get excited over amazing favor ideas and these are up there with my favorites… cookie mix in a jar! The colors are perfect for this type of mood but the actual favor is so fun for guests to enjoy and remember your unique wedding!!
