25th June 2012
Victorian Spring Racing Carnival 2012 kicks off soon and runs all the way through to November and to the Melbourne Cup - so famous that it calls for a public holiday across most of the state of Victoria!
As with most of the racing events throughout the carnival the Emirates Melbourne Cup 2012 will be a fantatsic event and so much more than just a horse race, with racegoers dressed to impress, it will certainly be a visual spectacle just as much as a sporting one! In fact, a trip to the races is all about the fashion... and what better place to gather some ideas for your wedding colours, bridesmaid dresses, fascinators and more!
This year Spring Racing Carnival Trends will be attention to the cut, fabric and clever design of your dress and entire outfit. Dare to be daring and bring out your wild side at the reaces this year. Throw on some killer heels and grab some heel covers to stop you from sinking into the ground at the races, perfect for garden weddings and any other outdoor events too!
A fascinator or an amazing hat is a must for the ladies! The size and shape that you can get away with depends on your confidence and your personality, here are some examples that have been seen on the race fields over the last few years - some great inspiration for your wedding, perhaps some tips for mother of the bride and bridesmaids! We have teamed them up with our favourite designs to match too...
