mad men

retro tropical mad men inspired wedding inspiration board

Sometimes I feel like the only person on the planet who hasn’t watched Mad Men (true story). BUT I’ve seen enough pictures of Mad Men themed weddings to know that it has a total 60s vibe that everyone (myself included) is loving right now. So – this wedding inspiration board is what happens when you take a Mad Men themed wedding to the tropics! Fun, right? If that lovely 11 hour flight from NYC to Honolulu existed in the 1960s I bet they’d all be running off to get married in Hawaii anyway. Who wouldn’t? I love the mod elements in this inspiration board and the yellow + black, gold, green, and white color palette. Yes it’s retro, but because of the popularity of this show right now it’s also on trend!

  1. OBSESSED. Totally obsessed with this. I have a secret passion for 1960s interiors, and I love that vibe mixed with a tropical feel. I really want to live in this board. I’m totally using it for interior design inspiration.

  2. The dress is amazing! Lately I’m obsessed with yellow! I just looked into Chris Benz website , sooo cool!

  3. You aren’t the only one who doesn’t watch!
