It’s the Summer of Love All Over Again With a Mad Men Wedding

For almost eight years, Mad Men has been giving weekly glimpses into the Technicolor style of the 1960s. From glamorous fashion to killer interior design, there's something worth swooning over in every episode.

Now that the series is drawing to a close, it's the end of an era. We're saying goodbye to girdles and gimlets, and hello to questionable facial hair and far-out fashion.

If you aren't quite ready to say so long to the employees of Sterling-Cooper, here are 13 ways you can draw inspiration from Mad Men for your perfect Mid-Century Modern wedding.

1. The Invitations:

Just because that falling silhouette in the opening credits is drinking alone doesn't mean he has to stay that way. Set the tone to your Mad Men wedding right off the bat with these stylish "Save the Dates."

2. The Décor:

At the end of the '60s, the color palette started to turn a little more... avocado. This orange and green table setting looks like it could have been set up by Megan Draper for one of her wild canyon parties.

3. The Place Cards:

Who needs table numbers when you can sit at the Burger King table?

4. The Dress:

While Roger Sterling's daughter wore a traditional gown for her white wedding in Season 3, her feathered headpiece looks like it would be right at home on our alternative veils list.

But if you want to be series finale appropriate, you need to find a vintage, flowing Gunne Sax dress:

5. Your Hair:

By the end of the '60s, most hip chicks were wearing their hair down, but on your wedding day, you've got to try one of Betty's up-dos. Remember, "the higher the hair the closer to God" was a 1960s motto.

6. Your Groom:

When it comes to marriage, Don Draper might be the worst husband to emulate, but the man sure knows how to wear a three-piece suit.

7. Your Bridesmaids:

There are hundreds of horrifying period-appropriate recipes hiding out on the internet! If you're truly committed to this theme, you'll have to serve food that's a little fancier than cocktail weenies. And marriage is all about commitment, isn't it?

10. The Drinks:

Don Draper wouldn't drink a pink couple's cocktail and neither should you.

11. The Favors:
