Did you know the Kentucky Derby can offer and beautifully sophisticated wedding theme?

The Kentucky Derby takes place on May 2nd – and although this may not seem like your typical wedding occasion, it can definitely make for a truly remarkable and unforgettable event. How to pull off a Kentucky Derby-themed wedding in a sophisticated and beautiful way? We have some ideas for you – so read on if you need some inspiration.

Kentucky Derby wedding

• Masculine invitations. Wedding invitations are very often floral and quite feminine – but that doesn’t mean you have to stick to the norm. Create invitations that beautifully incorporate masculine touches and leather – they will be more than impressive for your guests!

• Equestrian life. Choosing a rustic wedding venue is key for the success of your Kentucky Derby-themed wedding – so take advantage of this and bring some equestrian touches into the Big Day too. Gorgeously “dressed up” horses can make the atmosphere at your wedding feel really well incorporated with the natural surroundings and they can surely add a unique touch to your special event!

• Pretty florals. Want your Kentucky Derby-themed wedding to be decorated with flowers that complement this interesting theme? We suggest you start with the greenery (e.g. eucalyptus) and work your way up to flowers in delicate pastel shades (peonies, wild roses and, generally speaking, wild flowers make for excellent options).

• Wedding pies. Forget about the all-too-traditional wedding cake and serve your guests with some mouthwatering homemade pies! They will be a nice surprise and they will go perfectly with your country-themed wedding!
