We’ve looked at inspiration and flowers, so now it’s time for fashion! Photographer Annie Edmonds sent over these lovely images of Southern belles in their Derby finery, and I don’t know about you, but they sure make me want to grab a mint julep and hitch the next ride to Kentucky for this weekend’s festivities! Are any of y’all lucky enough to be going to the races?
We couldn’t think of a better way to end Derby Week on Southern Weddings than with a Derby-inspired brunch!
Photographer Sarah E. Evans and planner Tamara of Whimsical Creations by Tamara teamed up to bring us this shoot, filled with our favorite Southern things–mint juleps, biscuits and honey! The shoot took place at the Haley Farm in San Augustine, Texas, where, appropriately, 13 horses reside. We can’t think of a more bucolic place to host a bridesmaids’ lunch or bridal shower!
Thank you, Tamara and Sarah!
Will y’all be watching the Derby this Saturday? I’m hoping “Pants on Fire” wins — what a name! See the horse line-up here, then comment below with your favorite!
It wouldn’t be Derby Week without some hat love! Aside from shading your lovely face from the sun, Derby hats are fabulous and can show off your personal style. Luckily, this week’s giveaway can help you do all that! If you checked out Marissa’s Southern Style post from this morning, you’re probably familiar with this week’s giveaway–it was featured in our hat round-up!
Marley Lilly’s collection of floppy hats are not only the perfect way to celebrate the races, they make great bridesmaids gifts! Can you imagine you and your ‘maids sipping sweet teas or mimosas in these hats? I know, it’s almost too perfect.
These floppy hats can be monogrammed with your initials (probably Whitney’s favorite part) and you can also add a sash bow (definitely my favorite part)! There are so many ways to customize these adorable hats, you’ll want to start a collection.
You must be dying to win one! Here’s how you do it:
To Enter: Go to Marley Lilly’s site and flip through their floppy hats. Then come back to this post and tell us which color/monogram/bow combo you would choose and how it represents your personality.
