The industrial style has captured our hearts since forever! It is used in architecture, decoration and even in the confectionary world. Its appearance, texture and colour are definitely here to stay!
As you have already realized wedding décor is not an exception when it comes to using the industrial trend! We have put together some ideas on how to create a minimalist setting with strict lines and a modern mood by using the one-and-only decorative ally that is none other than concrete!
You shouldn’t limit yourself by using just this one material. Let your imagination run wild and seek the help of professionals, who have undertaken the planning and decoration of your wedding and create an industrial-themed wedding! Add concrete even in places where it should be completely absent, like on the invitations, the wedding dress or even the wedding cake!
Various sized concrete candleholders can be used for decorating the tables. Keep in mind that concrete and shades of bronze fit perfectly!

Small signs made of decorative cement in various shades with guests’ names on them can be used for the seating arrangement. If again you are thinking about something more imposing, then you can use cement-made columns decorated with lots of greenery!
