Have a Mad, Mad Men Wedding

Apr 14 2014 - 1:23pm

The season seven premiere of Mad Men [1] aired yesterday, and we can't wait to see what's in store for Don, Megan, Peggy, Betty, Pete, and the rest of the gang during the show's final season. Watching Mad Men always has us dreaming of a '60s-era wedding [2] that takes its cues from the chic style of the TV show. If you're as big of a fan as we are, check out these swingin' ways to incorporate Mad Men into your big day.

Pretty in Pink

Whether it's for your engagement photos or postwedding shoot, go all out with a retro setting and ultraglam attire fit for Don and Megan.

Fabulous in Fur

To dress the part, you'll need a tea-length dress and fur stole, and your man will need some serious Don Draper-esque style.

Hot Props

Turn your photo booth into a Mad Men scene with a Mad Men photo booth prop collection [7] ($53) or this Mad Men party on a stick set [8] ($57).

Typed Up

It wouldn't be an ad agency in the '60s without a typewriter, so use one as a prop on your guest book table or next to your dessert spread.

In the Details

Don't forget the '60s accessories like gloves and a birdcage veil.

Up in Smoke

All kinds of wedding [24] foods and sweets are done bar-style these days, so take a cue from that for a cigar bar at your reception — the ad men in attendance will appreciate it!
