Pops of gold and copper

Industrial venues can be a little cold, so warm things up with pops of gold and copper where you can. Flashy chairs, centrepiece vessels and flatware all look stunning.

Blissful Memories

Brewery wedding venue

Can’t decide on the perfect venue for your industrial chic affair? If a loft or warehouse isn’t for you, try a brewery - Canada has plenty of wedding-worthy options.

Junction Craft Brewery

Plant wall

Forget about flower walls! If you’re looking for a fun way to introduce a bit of nature into your brick and beam space, go for a backdrop filled with ferns, vines and other greenery.

Westview Events & Florals

Edison bulb strands

These are the hipper siblings of fairy lights and you definitely need to incorporate them in your wedding venue decor. They’ll warm up the room and look awesome in photos (here’s proof).

Metal signage

Play off the industrial feel of your space by using metal signage to point your guests in the right direction.

CN Roundhouse & Conference Centre

Graffiti photoshoot backdrop

Strike a pose in front of a graffiti-clad wall to grunge up your wedding photos. Pro tip: don’t forget to check that there’s not any expletives or lewd imagery before you start posing - you don’t want any of that in your shots.

Industrial chic wedding dress

Skip the traditional white ball gown and choose a metallic wedding dress with a bit more sparkle. A metallic frock is sure to turn heads, which is exactly what you want on your big day.

Carpet aisle

Give your industrial ceremony space some cozy, homey vibes by adding vintage carpets to your aisle and altar. You can go with similar patterns or mix and match for a more boho look.

Candles galore

Warm up your venue with the soft glow of candles! Use them as aisle markers, centerpieces and around your venue. They’ll instantly transform your space.

Swoon Events

Colourful lounge

Industrial wedding venues tend to have very muted colour palettes. Make yours a touch more inviting by creating a lounge with bold accent decor and comfy couches stacked with bright pillows.

Minimalist altar

Bricks, beams and factory windows are all your need. Skip the fancy floral archway and elaborate arrangements and opt for a minimalist altar, instead.

Simple wedding cake

Don’t go overboard with fondant figures, wallpaper designs and rosettes on your wedding cake! A modern and simple design - like this two-tier buttercream cake with gold flecks and accent flowers - will fit your wedding theme perfectly (and probably save you a few bucks).

Geometric decor

One of our favourite industrial chic wedding ideas is to include modern decor accents, like these metallic geometric plant holders. They look amazing in lofts and warehouses (and are very Anthropologie).

Chic table settings

Contrast your cool and edgy venue with some chic table setting decked out with pretty linens and elaborate place settings.

Toronto Wedding Studios

Greenery packed bouquet

Fill your bridal bouquet (and other arrangements) with a healthy dose of greenery. It’s a unique option and is guaranteed to lower your florists bill (a real win-win).
