Ok we heard you! you all really enjoy wedding inspiration! Warehouse wedding inspiration to be precise. Read on as the team at Warehouse Home share 5 quick tips to creating the whimsical warehouse wedding you’ve always dreamed of.

1. Quirky Centerpieces

The table centerpiece is the perfect way to inject a combination of style, humour and personality. Source items that are unique to your shared interests or choose something quirky for your guests to envy over the second course. Use Pinterest appropriate mason jars, reclaimed timber, bricks and antique porcelain jars.

2. Filament Bulbs

Dramatic, moody and atmospheric, the warm ambience of an Edison style filament bulb needs little introduction to a warehouse wedding enthusiast (find more inspiration here!). Hung individually or in clusters, these bare bulbs soften harsh textures like concrete and metal.

4. Floral Arrangements

Exotic floral arrangements create a stunning juxtaposition against raw surfaces like brickwork and concrete. Recreate this idea and use an antique frame to centre your floral wall arrangement creating the perfect composition. Or, alternatively, take advantage of the available height and suspended bouquets and greenery from the ceiling to add visual interest and create a greater sense of balance.

5. Communal Dining

Create a feeling of unity, friendship and community with large communal style dining tables in reclaimed timber. Imagine long, crisp table runners and wreathes of greenery. Add quirky tableware for flair. Mix and match metal industrial chairs for additional charm.
