The south is rife with romance and wedding style inspiration—ever seen The Notebook? In honor of the 139th Kentucky Derby on May 4, we collected hats (when else can you wear a fascinator?), dresses, and favors (we love the Kentucky-style mini bottles of Maker's Mark) that channel the spirit of the grand tradition. Southern-inspired details like these will give your spring wedding a unique, courtly twist. Ready, set, race!

See all of the Kentucky Derby-inspired wedding details in the complete slideshow.
