Minimalistic details can go a long way, especially in industrial weddings. There’s something about exposed bricks, bare concrete, and stringing lights that really set the mood.
On August 18th, 2018, Sarah and Zach exchanged their vows and said their “I dos” at The Forge Venue in Fort Worth, Texas.
The Forge Venue was the perfect blank canvas for their industrial wedding. “The bride went very minimal on the venue and reception decor, so we really wanted to turn this rather rustic blank slate into a greenery wonderland,” Laura (the bride’s sister) said.
Sticking with the minimalistic theme, the bride chose a simple, yet elegant color palette for her industrial wedding. “We wanted to keep the wedding as neutral as possible with whites and greens,” Laura said.
Along with the white and green color scheme, the bride also wanted to incorporate rose gold flowers. While searching the site, she came across the quicksand cream roses, which ended up being a great addition to their floral arrangements.
DIY Wedding Flowers
Although arranging your flowers can be a lot of work, it’s definitely not impossible! Laura was in charge of arranging her sister’s wedding flowers and through this experience, she recommended a few things.
“The only thing I would have done differently (besides having more time) is practicing the corsages before the wedding day. I didn’t so this and my first wrist corsage kept falling apart. I was freaking out thinking– what if the mothers and grandmothers don’t have flowers! Luckily, my sister came to the rescue and helped me come up with a plan to keep the wrist corsages from falling apart. So PRACTICE, PRACTICE,” Laura said.
