Wedding Theme | Industrial Chic

Industrial themed weddings have been very popular this year and will continue to be for the rest of the season. If you're into bare walls, rusty metals, and interesting light fixtures... this is the theme for you!

The reason this theme seems to be so popular, is the fact that it allows a lot of room for creativity and blending together a bride + groom's eclectic styles while embracing that classic vintage charm. This venue space works great for autumn and winter wedding season when you need a fabulous indoor space. (Industrial rooftop terrace is also a great option!)

With an industrial themed wedding you can get as creative with your guests spaces as you would like!

Inspiration Blog | Secret Garden Theme.

We have seen a lot of different themes over the years.  And we absolutely love it when a couple chooses a theme that matters to them and goes all out!  When it comes to wedding themes, your imagination is your only limit.  {Well and maybe your budget lol}

Today on the blog, I wanted to share a Secret Garden Wedding Theme.  And of course, we picked a gown from OUTW that we think would be perfect for this theme.

Let's dive in!

The reason that I love the theme of Secret Garden is because I love the mix of whimsical and romantic.  Like this cake table created by Selah Vie Weddings + Events.  I love the mix of cupcakes, cakes and macaroons made by Bright Eyes Cake Design.  Photography by Dylan Martin Photography.

I love the soft hues of these colours together.  And I love the return of gold accents in wedding decor and wedding planning.  Photograph from Pinterest.

We love these centrepieces for a secret garden wedding theme.  Simple, yet beautiful.  As a big book reader, I love how they incorporated old books and how it gives a nod to classic, olden days.  Photograph from Pinterest.

These invitations from The Paper Bride, which are available at Once Upon A Time Weddings are the perfect addition to any garden wedding.  I love the florals mixed with the navy colour.

The Secret Garden Theme is the perfect theme for mix-matched bridesmaids.  We love these colours together and they still give you lots of colour choices for florals + decor.

We adore this gown which will arrive to OUTW in August.  We cannot wait for brides to try it on.  We love the lace details and how it has a touch of lace underneath the tulle skirt.  We think it's the perfect combination of whimsical and romantic, just like the Secret Garden theme.
