Rustic chic weddings have lived in the spotlight for several years now. Miles of burlap and lace have created stunning rustic weddings. However, a modern trend with clean lines, touches of metallic, and, of course, plenty of glamour is on the horizon.
Industrial glam probably sounds like an oxymoron. But is rustic chic any different? Industrial glam creates images of high ceiling lofts, busy city streets, and luxurious skyscrapers with thousands of feet of metal and glass. Modern weddings can range from minimal to over the top. Maintaining the industrial aspect, a couple can here this trend toward their love of vintage without ever diverting from the edgy atmosphere that this creates.
For attire, consider metallic touches of silver, platinum, gold, or rose gold. A gorgeous white shift dress with a silver lace overlay is perfect and maintains the look of the industrial with the soft female characteristic of the lace. Shoes can either be entirely metallic or just hinted at. For men, you cannot go wrong with a wedding day gift of a skeleton watch. Classy and poignant (he better be on time!), it sets the mood for your fashionable groom.
Flowers can range from neutrals and white with heavy greens mixed in, to incredible textures such as succulents and ferns. For an unexpected nod to the theme, consider dusty millers. They create a beautiful soft, gray texture without overwhelming your primary blooms.
Decor is limitless. For a more traditional venue, consider the space and think of how industrial touches, rather than huge extravagant choices can cater to the original design of the room rather than take away from it.
