Industrial Chic Pink Wedding
A huge industrial building is the setting for a wedding that leaves no details behind. With the bride in a dress with lace detail on the bodice and a groom looking dapper in navy, classic and romantic combine.
Potted plants nestled in cinderblocks make up part of the decor. The bouquet is beyond stunning (read on for the details) and a rustic table adorned with Fuschia coloured ribbon is ready for the reception. We can’t say enough about this wedding inspiration but we can be amazed by its originality and beauty!
Details for an Industrial Chic Pink Wedding
The loft/ industrial wedding style is amongst the popular choices at the moment. The simple reason is because of the theme's versatility, minimalistic feel, and the free reign it gives couples to mix-and-match various elements. Add in the feminine colour palette and what you have is an industrial chic pink wedding.
Industrial chic weddings also present an opportunity to breathe embers of new life into once abandoned or neglected locations. Such spaces allow you to put together an event that fuses the gritty and unrefined aspects of the industrial revolution with sleek and contemporary wedding design. The result is a throwback-style glamourous backdrop that provides the prime grounds to create lasting memories.

Colour Palettes for an Industrial Chic Pink Wedding
It's all about shades of pink juxtaposed with white, green, and gray undertones for this theme. The simple wedding colours create a romantic and minimalistic feel while the rough industrial edges provide striking points of interest. Texturised woods, exposed beams, and the two-tone brick wall further give the entire look some character.
Planning an industrial chic pink wedding is much like bridging the gap between the old and new in a beautiful way. Bring in some old-world charms in the form of gold and copper accents. Overall, less is more with the industrial chic theme because the spirit of this wedding style leans on keeping everything simple.
What to Look for in a Venue for an Industrial Chic Pink Wedding
Revamped warehouses, converted lofts, breweries, and former factories are ideal industrial wedding venue options. A space that's more or less bare to the bones is ideal for this style of nuptials because it allows the raw elements of the space to stand out while reinforcing the minimalistic aspect.
Go for locations with unrefined characteristics like cement floors, brick walls, exposed beams, visible pipes, and even peeling paint to truly bring out the industrial aesthetic. Illumination is yet another important aspect that plays up the industrial chic aesthetic. You’ll also need to bring in other light sources, and a great option is stringing up Edison bulbs as well as setting up marquee signs around the venue.

Bridesmaids Dresses for an Industrial Chic Pink Wedding
Bouncing off of the bridal ensemble, a modern look works for the bridesmaids' dresses combined with vintage-esque details. Once again simplicity should take over as an ode to the minimalistic side of the theme. Incorporating a bit of embellishment doesn't hurt, as a way of playing up the industrial aspect of this wedding style.
Choose outfits fashioned using fabrics with some sparkle. As for the colours, soft shades of tan, slate, sage, and gray are wonderful options for the bridesmaids' ensembles. The bridesmaids' outfits also present a great opportunity to allow the mix-and-match element of the industrial chic style to shine.
Ceremony Decor for an Industrial Chic Pink Wedding
An industrial wedding venue serves as the perfect backdrop for both the ceremony and wedding reception. The editorial shows us how to dress up different areas around such a space for these two different aspects of the big day. When it comes to the ceremony space, it's a great idea to incorporate a wedding arch.
Recycled wood and an overgrowth of foliage are the two main features that create the perfect industrial chic arbour. Set up candle lanterns, in bronze and gray tones, as aisle markers. Other additions that help strike a balance include predominantly white floral arrangements and metallic accents.
Reception Decor for an Industrial Chic Pink Wedding
An industrial wedding space provides plenty of visual interest that very minimal additions are needed to spruce it up. Remember that you want to leave the peeling paint, exposed wooden beams, and metallic details intact. If you need to cover up an area for any reason, draping will do the trick.
The rest of your wedding decoration choices should be categorised along these lines; geometric patterns, foliage to enhance the raw aura, and acrylics/ lucite for a touch of contemporary vibes. You don't really need blooms for this minimalistic theme but if you want to add a few, go for pink and white wedding flowers as depicted in the editorial.
Bouquets & Boutonnieres for an Industrial Chic Pink Wedding
Any bride planning an industrial chic pink wedding wouldn't change a thing when it comes to the floral arrangements. Bogath Weddings & Events did a great job at putting together eye-catching bouquets made up of an elegant selection of blooms. They stuck with the white, green, and pink palette with varying shades of the pink blooms.
The groom's boutonniere is also simple with a single pink bloom wrapped with green foliage. It's an equally lovely touch how they used a couple of cinder blocks to set up floral arrangements. Once again, candles fused into the floral design and arrangements create a stunning sight.
Wedding Invitations for an Industrial Chic Pink Wedding
Bogath Weddings & Events deserve a pat on the back once again for presenting a detail-rich editorial that provides a visual guide to planning every aspect of an industrial chic pink wedding. The wedding invitation suite is glamorous and it maintains a minimalist look. A combination of white and pink hues with an elegant gold-toned font captures the exact nature of the event.
Little details like including a pink-lace envelope band further capture the industrial aesthetic. If you want to go a different route, a geometric-shaped acrylic box filled with green foliage and thematic blooms alongside the wedding invites is a worthwhile option.
Portrait Props for an Industrial Chic Pink Wedding
You are guaranteed to take stunning, fun, and nostalgic photos at an industrial wedding venue. Posing in front of some of the grimiest and grittiest parts of the building translates into gorgeous photos that capture the juxtaposition of the old and new. A few portrait props can also enhance the aesthetics of your wedding photos.
Letter balloons are fun props and you can spell out pretty much what you want with them. Go candle-crazy with selections of soft glow sticks encased in acrylic cases or lanterns. Neon signs are equally wonderful wedding props because they bring in the modern element. Metallic floor lamps are also great additions to the space.
Favours & Gifts for an Industrial Chic Pink Wedding
The industrial-loving couple will equally enjoy putting together wedding favours for their guests. Gifts with steampunk and industrial flair are befitting for the occasion. Galvanised tin tags are worth considering and it's a thoughtful gesture to also customise them. Bronze/tin favour boxes are also a perfect way to present the chosen gifts to your guests.
Laser-cut metal place holders, tiny lanterns, and metal/wood coasters are wonderful industrial chic wedding favours. Concrete planters, old skeleton keys, antique iron sculptures, and copper bottle stoppers are other great ideas as well. For the minimalist elements, handmade soaps, handcrafted candles, and scented candles presented in wooden or metallic boxes are also great options.
Industrial Chic Art Factory Wedding
From Bogath Weddings & Events – “There is something amazing about The Art Factory in Paterson, NJ. Maybe it’s the name. Or, perhaps it’s the city. Maybe it’s the history of the building… if those walls could talk! The Art Factory is a huge silk factory complex of 17 buildings that has been repurposed to serve as a community space for artists of all types to create. It’s a true oasis of creativity within the city.
I found my inspiration for this wedding, editorial within the space itself and chose to style the shoot with industrial details and textures including cement cinder blocks, marble place cards, and antique glass light bulbs. These hard elements were softened by the floral design and Idalia Photography was there to capture it all.”
“The florals we created which included tropical Pink Ice Protea, poppy pods and layers of O’Hara roses, pink Helleborus, wax flower, and lisianthus double whites. Additionally, there was a variety of greenery that included trailing cascades of flowering pink jasmine vine and lush Ruscus greens.
The cake was a two-tiered cake with fondant in a grey marble pattern. The design was enhanced with florals and a beautiful laser-cut wood cake topper by Wanderlove Press!”
“The bride wore a modern yet classic wedding dress from Nha Khanh. The dress was chosen because of the beautiful lace detail with modern touches, like the detailed edging and simple bottom. The romantic headpiece and jewellery was a custom design by Foolish Ginger Bridal, and was created with the shoot in mind. The gold and vintage feel combined with the placement in the model’s hair was the perfect way to merge the modern industrial venue with a classic and romantic feel. The groom wore a classic navy suit and details that matched the rest of the shoots’ design.”
“The Tablescape centrepiece containers were created by spray painting cinder blocks gold. These were then stacked and staggered on the large over-sized table and filled with tons of florals. One of the more cost-effective aspects of the shoot was created by adding to the intense greenery by placing small potted plants into the holes of the cinder blocks!
We filled the other spaces with beautiful vintage pieces including an antique lamp with a gorgeous key switch. The dishes were chosen for their clean and modern feel. Each table setting was simple with a marble place card that tied to the cake design as well as a fern leaf that reflected the floral designs.”
