Mad Men is back! After almost two years off the air, fans are reveling again in cocktails at noon and chain smoking in the office. Vicariously, that is…

Much of the buzz ahead of the season 5 premiere centered around a possible wedding – would Don Draper tie the knot, or stick to his womanizing ways (or both)?  We won’t spoil the surprise, but all the talk about Madison Avenue nuptials got us dreaming about 1960s-inspired wedding style.

Here are some of our favorite finds:

The dress: Jenny Packham’s Nymph gown, with its demure illusion neckline and full skirt, is oh-so “Mrs. Draper.” And what 60s-era bride would be seen without her gloves?

The suit: Banana Republic teamed up with Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant on a crisply tailored collection designed for the modern man. The line’s chino suit, paired with a black tie, would fit right in at Sterling Cooper.

The invites: Check out these “Madly in Love” save-the-dates featuring the series’ iconic opening sequence. The best part: a template allows you to personalize your own.

The entertainment: Lucky Strikes? Check. Dirty martini? Check. These Mad Men-themed photo booth props will have your guests mugging for the camera all night.

The cake: Nothing says “I love you” like canned fruit. Whip up this pineapple upside-down cake for a decadent treat.
