Okay fine, so maybe this doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with weddings but I wanted to share anyway! I am so excited that Mad Men will continue its gloriousness for another two seasons. 🙂 Whoo! That seemed like a close one.
And I’m just kidding. Of course I am going to relate this back to weddings! Read on…
‘Mad Men’ is a done deal! AMC drama is renewed with Matthew Weiner on board
Don Draper might make it to the 1970s after all. After a protracted standoff, AMC, Lionsgate andMad Men creator Matthew Weiner have reached an agreement for seasons five and six of the Emmy-winning drama.
Weiner, who will return as showrunner, has also signed a new long-term deal with Lionsgate. As a result of the negotiations, however, season five isn’t expected to air until March of next year.
Okay everyone – wedding time! 🙂
1.) Outfit your bridesmaids in dresses inspired by Joan, Betty, or Peggy. For the Peggy look, go with ponytails and a cute geometric printed dress. For Joan, think updos with height and sexy wiggle dresses. For Betty, get pretty with curls and a printed dress with a full tea-length skirt.
2.) Leave your ceremony in a classic car. People will ooh and aah as they toss the rose petals!
3.) A well stocked martini bar complete with retro glassware. Enough said.
4.) Dress your groomsmen in slick gray, brown, or olive suits paired with white collared shirts and a basic striped tie. Wear bowties if you like to channel Harry Crane Also, pocket kerchiefs are a MUST! Fedoras optional (but pretty cool for photo ops…)
5.) Serve up classic 60’s cocktails, including mint juleps, martinis, Tom Collins, and Don’s favorite: Old Fashioned. For the kids, Coca-Cola in glass bottles!
6.) Instead of floral centerpieces, have rotary phones and typewriters adorn your tables. As an extra special touch, add a few other neat details, such as games from the 60’s, vintage lamps, or tins.
7.) Create a cool lounging area by scouring thrift stores for retro furniture. Include some mod pillows and maybe even some magazines from the time period. It’ll be the perfect place for your guests to chill.
8.) Have a classic bride and groom on the top of your cake. It never goes out of style!
9.) Have your place cards crafted with Mad Men inspired designs or retro lettering and numbers. It’ll really make a statment if you pair them with themed place cards.
10.) Name your tables (and decorate them by theme!) after Sterling Cooper/Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce accounts.
