How to Decorate a Warehouse Wedding Venue

Now that you've chosen your industrial-chic wedding venue, where do you start with décor? Whether you're inspired by different themes or specific colour palettes, there's a lot to decide when it comes to getting down to the details of decorating. Here at Hitched, we've gathered some advice from industry professionals to ensure that you and your soon-to-be spouse can really see your vision come to life.

The expert team at Jaydas Events LTD in South East London love industrial warehouses for their versatility and flexibility. With their raw, unique feel, these kinds of settings are perfect for more rustic weddings in particular.

The Jaydas team also advised us that a key element to consider while planning is the lighting: "Due to its open space, a warehouse venue will benefit from lighting to bring out its beauty." Think candles, candelabras, tea light votives, and fairy lights to add a warm glow and sense of romance to the room. 

Looking to display your fresh (or faux) flowers? The folks at Jaydas suggest doing so in the form of floral chandeliers. Hang these eye-catching creations above dining tables, balanced with low centrepieces on the tables themselves to totally transform your space.

If you're hoping to achieve a more urban look or more boho vibes, Shirley of Serenlilly Wedding & Event Hire in Bracknell, Berkshire, had some sound advice.

Balancing the raw, industrial features to create an elegant blend of aesthetics, you can use backdrops and drapery for a more luxurious, textured setting for your day. Another great way to add a bit of glamour to the space, Shirley advises, is to add lanterns, table styling, and floral arrangements.

Most of all: remember to enjoy the process, and take time basking in your dream event becoming a reality at your versatile, blank-canvas wedding venue. The possibilities are truly endless.

Still stuck for ideas? Why not try and see what the perfect venue is for your personality – it could make the decision making so much easier!
