You’re only crazy if you don’t have everyone wear really cool hats!

I actually seen that on a wedding show i can’t remember what it was. Might have been “four weddings”. They had a smaller wedding party and got married and had teh reception at the derby.

That sounds awesome!  Do you have any inspiration boards?  And I agree with Maureen – cool hats are a must!

I think it would be a wonderful idea! It’s not something that you see at every wedding, but it’s something that could be pulled off without looking tacky.  I love the idea.

Here’s a possible inspiration board. Definitely have hats and mint juleps…

I think that sounds awesome! I really want to have a St.Patty’s Day wedding. I love a theme!

I think it’s an awesome theme, I’m a big derby fan myself having lived almost my whole like in Louisville. It wouldn’t be doable here…everything is super expensive around derby. Would love to see your ideas

I love it. I’m having a Derby themed bridesmaids luncheon. I don’t care if it’s 2 months early, I love the derby and I’m including it somehow in the wedding 🙂

I love it!! I’ve been horseback riding all my life and my PawPaw raised racehorses, I love that your having the wedding on a horse farm, I’d love to do that!  But if you do it Derby Day, you better have tv’s available to watch the race! 🙂 And definitely go with big hats for everyone, how fun!

Love this idea. I want to do a derby theme for my 30th birthday this year. I am in love with the idea of everyone wearing fabulous hats!

I would totally be excited if I got invited to a wedding with a derby theme.

OOhhh, I love that idea. That would be such a fun wedding, especially fun to find a new outfit and hat to wear!

That sounds amazing!!  You’ll have to let everyone watch (obviously), but since horse races are only a couple minutes long, that doesn’t take away from the event at all.  I think it’s a fabulous idea!
