Just because June is over doesn't mean that wedding season is coming to a close as well. For brides who will be married later this year or perhaps next year, we present our next set of themed wedding ideas.


AMC’s Mad Men is set in the 1960s, which is generally considered a period of awakening in American history. It was a time when women wore Jackie O’s classic pillbox hat, but also gravitated toward Mary Quant’s miniskirts. It was when conservative tastes converged with mod sensibilities, weddings not excluded.

To channel the '60s bride, wear a high-cut wedding dress with a pillbox bouffant veil and perfectly coifed hair (see Betty Draper-now-Francis). However, if prim and proper isn't your thing, you can opt to style your hair into a tall updo or adopt a more free-spirited approach by going with a crown of daisies--a flower favorite then.

And since drinks have always been a major part of Mad Men, make sure your guests have a drink in hand before you snap away with your vintage camera.

The Great Gatsby, set in the 1920s, is all about opulence, with its flapper look and to-die-for jewelry. Your wedding, should you decide to base it on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, is sure to be a glamorous and glittery affair. Nothing is too shocking or too hedonistic.

Find a venue that has strong art deco features, and ask your guests to come in their flapper best—in swaying fringes, drop waists, feathers, and strings and strings of pearls.

But you yourself must be on the hunt for the perfect wedding gown. Channel Daisy Buchanon in an intricately beaded dress and top it off with a fur coat (when appropriate) for that extra touch of glamour. A sparkly headpiece completes the look.

A hopeless romantic at heart? It's no wonder that you're turning to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice for inspiration. Now that you have your own Mr. Darcy, it's time you transform yourself into an 18th-century bride. Look for an empire waist wedding gown that's made from the most delicate fabric, and wear beautiful gloves to match.

As for your venue, Pemberley is a grand estate. In modern times, you can try booking one of the historical stone buildings in your own hometown for that landed gentry feel.
