Copper and Concrete Ideas for a Chic Industrial Wedding

Don’t like white satin and black ties? You’re not a “classic wedding” kind of couple. Instead, you’re trendy and cool. Copper and concrete accents come together perfectly to create an industrial wedding theme that looks like something right out of a bridal magazine photo shoot, and it’s an easy look to put together. With some copper, concrete and rusty accents, your industrial wedding will be chic and edgy, just like you!

An Industrial Venue

First, pick a location that fits the industrial theme. Look for a place that has high ceilings, exposed brick, worn wood and metal rafters. Converted factories, warehouses and loft spaces are venues that work the best!

Rusted Accents

Incorporating a worn but chic look to this theme isn’t as difficult as it seems. Rusty touches will help tie everything together. Luckily, it’s easy to DIY! Create faux rust with just iron paint and cinnamon.

Copper Place Card Holders

If you’re creating a seating chart for your reception, setup a cool way to let people know where they sit. Copper place card holders make an industrial theme feel elegant and edgy.

Copper and Concrete Vases

Don’t forget about the reception table centerpieces! Copper and concrete vases add a touch of sophistication to the table decor. They give the rough and metallic feeling of an industrial theme, but adding sweet, feminine flowers to each vase softens the look.

Cinder Block Decorations

The corners of the room often get overlooked at a wedding or reception. Fill the empty spaces with cinder blocks. Prop flower-filled vases or ambient lighting on top of them for instant modern flair.

Copper Cake Topper

Even the cake topper can match this chic theme! A geometric copper cake topper transforms a plain wedding cake into a beautiful piece of art.
