i could use your thoughts on this table setting. The tables will have tablecloths, these are runners in the pictures, just yo get an idea of the color. I’m the MOB trying to bring my long distance daughter’s idea into reality. She is looking for an industrial vibe for the wedding reception while keeping things classy. Whatever that means!!! Lol. Here is a potential mock up for a round table. Forgive the kitchen mess. Ivory tablecloths, copper chargers, copper votives, black napkins, green accents. I made the candelabras out of copper pipe, so I’d like to work around those if possible. Also, are the green menu cards too cheesy? Any feedback is appreciated!!

I like it! my only concern is the height.. I’ve been to events with elaborate centerpieces and while they’re gorgeous, they can be frustrating if they prevent you from seeing or talking to those across the table. would that be an issue here?

Honestly, the centerpiece isn’t my style – I personally like the inspiration pics claroquesi posted better for a wedding. Your kitchen though…I’m in love!

What you have put together is pretty awesome and unique. Is copper one of the wedding colors? I am not a fan of the green paper for the menus, or the black napkins. The black is not antwhere else on the table and does not make sense. I would do the invites on ivory paper with copper and/or green ink. paperandmore.com has some really amazing pearlscent paper that may work well for you that can also be printed on. Maybe try the napkins in green?
I love the copper pipe idea, and have not seen it used before. WHile the other inspo pics PP’s posted are pretty, they arent as industrial (except for the chairs) to me and have already been done. Ypu have come up with a really unique and beautiful idea, and just need to tweak the napkin/menu colors to make it perfect!
Would you mind sharing or messaging me how you made the candleabras? I would love to make something similar for my home.

Cindyh81: Can you clarify if you have already made all the candelabras. or just this sample?
My concern is that the widest parts of the candelabra seem to be right at eye level. I love the industrial look of the copper piping but a different shape, perhaps using tapers, might be more conducive to conversation at your guest tables.

I like the idea of the copper candelabras. I think the ones you made read more steampunk than industrial to me? The simpler lines of the ones Julies1949 posted read more industrial to me. I would check in with your daughter. I liked industrial venues and clean lines, but I still liked softer floral center pieces as a contrast to the rougher look of concrete or wood floors and exposed brick walls.

Are the flowers a must-have? I’ve been trying to think why this isn’t working 100% for me, and I think it’s the disconnect between the traditional flower arrangement and the copper pipe candelabra. The candelabra is edgy and the flowers, while meeting the need for “elegant” are just a bit too traditional.
Whether or not you use or change the candelabra, I would give consideration to using succulents or something with lots of eucalyptus branches rather than the white and green florals.
if you want to use the flowers, I would find a more modern way to use them
or use them in a minimalist fashion-this would be stunning with orchid blossoms
an arrangement of just seeded eucalyptus would look great with the copper

I would also use plain black napkins. The ? embroidered ones are a bit too cottagey for an industrial theme.
