Wedding Style: Mad Men Inspired

After eight long months of waiting, the Season 4 premiere of Mad Men was last night. Feeling ultra inspired by the polished look of 1960's world of Don and Betty Draper and Sterling Cooper, I put together a little Mad Men wedding style guide.

Starting off with a style board for the fellows...
Mad for the Men

Cool cars, cocktails, slick suits, grooming and styling accouterments, and a lovely little bride - a groom's Mad Men inspired wedding day essentials. And of course, he'll need his groomsmen nearby...

And on to the ladies...
Outfit your maids in retro inspired frocks a la Joan, Betty and Peggy... Or steal the look for yourself for an e-session, shower, rehearsal dinner or going away dress.
