Do you love Mad Men, all things 1960s and atomic style? And are you in the planning stages of your retro-inspired wedding? Perhaps a Mid-century modern Wedding is in your future.
Mid Century Modern (aka Mid Mod or MCM) is a hip design aesthetic based on modern architectural, interior and graphic design from around 1933 to 1965. Bright colors, futuristic furniture and clean lines best represent that era of impeccably cool style.
To incorporate the Mid Century vibe into your wedding a perfect first step would be hitting up your local thrift stores and antique shops to find period appropriate furniture and accessories to incorporate into your wedding. Feature some type of old fashioned cocktail bar (martinis work), t-strap pumps, succulent floral arrangements and atomic graphics on your invites. Add to the MCM atmosphere at your reception with a soundtrack featuring music from the era: Vic Damone, Sammy Davis, Jr., Eartha Kitt, Liberace, and, of course, Dean Martin, among others.
We invite those with an eye for sleek design to shake yourselves a cocktail, kick back in your Eames chair and take a look through our inspirational mid mod wedding ideas in the photos below. We think our ballet length Justin Alexander strapless lace wedding gown would work well within a retro wedding theme.
Please stop by The Gilded Gown. We are located in the Knoxville Center Mall downstairs by Sears. Open 11 am – 7 pm Monday through Saturday and Noon to 6 pm on Sunday. Our friendly stylists will gladly help you find the perfect retro wedding dress and accessories to perfectly capture your own Mid-Mod look.
