Kentucky Derby Bridal Shower Inspo

Updated: Mar 13, 2020

This year's Kentucky Derby is right around the corner and we thought it would be fun to share some ideas for a Derby-themed Bridal Shower! This southern, springtime event is the perfect brightly-colored backdrop for a festive party to celebrate your big day.

1. A Fun, Springtime Dress

The Kentucky Derby is all about breaking out the bright, springtime colors and your look should be no exception! Still want to wear white? Look for a dress with intricate beading, fun lace, or appliqués. Check out Town & Country's curated list of their favorite dress options for this year's Derby.

2. A Fabulous Hat

No Kentucky Derby look is complete without a show-stopping hat or fascinator. Go all-out with ribbons, feathers and a little bit of sparkle.

3. A Ribbon Photo Wall

A feature wall is a great way to engage your guests and have a little fun. Take a page out of Evite's book and create a gorgeous ribbon wall that will leave all your attendees with memories for years to come.

4. Mini Chicken & Waffles

Your favorite southern treats should be front-and-center. We love the idea of taking classic southern recipes, like chicken and waffles, and elevating them to cute, handheld appetizers. Doesn't this recipe just sound divine?!

5. Mint Juleps

For some added festive fun, the Kentucky Derby's signature cocktail is a must. Break out your favorite bourbon and create delicious mint julep's for your guests. Don't have the classic cups? Mason jars work great, too. Find the recipe here.
