For the past few years Mad Men's
cool retro style has inspired not only fashion, but home accessories and weddings.
If you're going for a retro-feel wedding, you won't want to forget the flowers! In honor of the show's season premiere, we present these ideas for your retro-inspired wedding flowers.
For a truly authentic feel, you'll want a cascade bouquet like the ones pictured below. This is the sort of bouquet that most brides of the era carried. White is more authentic, but red or another bright color gives the look a more modern feel. Unless your wedding is a costume party, there's no reason to feel like you have to be completely authentic.
For your bridesmaids, mother, and mother of the groom, consider wrist corsages instead of bouquets or corsages that can be pinned to delicate fabrics. The pom-pom corsage on the right is available from Etsy.
Calla Lillies were a popular wedding flower of the time, and still are! The bouquet, corsage, and boutonierre featured here are all available from our flower gallery.
Now that you have your flowers, sit back, make yourself a stiff Martini and enjoy Sunday's premiere!
