The Kentucky Derby may take place over 900 miles away from Vermont, but that doesn't mean there isn't a trophy cups worth of inspiration that we can find in the iconic style of this beloved, southern event. Our state animal is a horse, after all, and Vermont has a strong history in horse racing. Here are some of our favorite Kentucky Derby inspired wedding images that we hope will sweeten your day.

 

The Alerin Barn, St. Johnsbury, Vermont

The weather outside might be warming up and the leaves are turning green instead of bright reds and oranges, but we have been saving this rusticly charming wedding to share on our blog for far too long! Birch arbors, cafe lighted barns, and a tractor driven transport epitomize a country classic Vermont wedding. Add in unique details, such as origami paper flower bouquets and a plethora of pies in place of a cake, and you have the perfect recipe for a sweet day of matrimony in the Green Mountains.

All too easily brides and grooms get caught up in the fuss fueled by celebrity media and shows like 'Say Yes To The Dress' and 'My Fair Wedding'. Instead of falling for a financial trap, read on for some advice from couples who have been there before and some helpful statistics on average costs.
