Hello this is Leo Harry. My fiance and I are considering having a chocolate themed wedding next May. We will be getting married in an old chocolate factory that has since been re-done into a restaurant and banquet facility. The factory still has some industrial elements left in the space.
Hello Leo, it’s amazing that you and your fiance are considering an old chocolate factory as a venue. Industrial weddings are very special because there are already a lot of elements you can make part of your chocolate-themed wedding. As a recommendation, we can tell you that it’s important to incorporate flowers and texture alongside metallic elements in order to find a balance. As it was a chocolate factory maybe you can find the perfect spot to string up Edison bulbs, you can hang them from the ceiling to the floor, across a backdrop, or overhead above tables to add an intimate “bistro feel”. In addition, you can also decorate the table with every kind of chocolate snack that you can think of, some ideas: chocolate fountain, glasses made of chocolate, chocolate wedding cake, cupcakes, bites, brownies… and more!
Definitely, the chocolate-themed wedding with the industrial venue is an excellent combination. We wish you can find a path to follow after this small advice.
Good luck and congratulations!
