Inspiration: Create a Rustic + Industrial Look for Your Wedding

Galvanized ceiling decor wash tubs

Yes, you read that right. Rustic + Industrial is the look we’re delighted to recommend for couples wanting something a little different for their wedding theme. But aren’t these two contrasting styles, you might wonder? Precisely. Once combined, though, the result can be quite striking and surprisingly charming. Intrigued? Come see what elements you can pull together to create this unique look!

Combining Rustic Charm with an Industrial Edge

‘Industrial’ is all about metallic surfaces and textures, machine parts and hardware. While ‘rustic’ is associated with wood, fabric, florals, and natural materials. Well, it is possible to blend the factory/warehouse aesthetic with softening elements just as in these lovely examples we found.

Your table settings can have steel and galvanized iron plate ware, cutlery, candlesticks and centerpiece containers set against bare wooden tabletops, wooden crates, and the sweetest dainty white florals.

A perfect match for the tables would be wood and metal chairs, with mod Mr. and Mrs. signs in a glittery metallic finish. While 3D table numbers tucked amidst lush blooms and wire place card holders displaying name cards made of handmade paper would make fascinating accents.

For lighting, what a spectacle you’d create with washbasin ‘lampshades’ overhead, contrasted with more pristine white flowers and candles plus sparkling glassware.

And finally, your dessert and drinks display would be stunning indeed set up on wood-and-steel factory shelves. Just add a leafy arbor or vine for that quaintly unexpected rustic touch.

We have to admit we’re pretty smitten with this Rustic + Industrial theme ourselves. Hope we’ve won you over, too!
