MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Stories of the community will come to life during the “Wedding Dresses Through the Decades” exhibit Jan. 19-March 3 in Maney Hall at Oaklands Mansion.
Step back into time and experience the common threads that weave our lives together as we explore women’s history, fashion history, cultural history and the history of our community. Over fifty gowns will be placed on loan and exhibited, most for the first time.
Vintage gowns from the past 100 years will be on display along with brides’ photos and stories from their wedding day. During this exhibit, guests will have the rare opportunity to view items from, not only the museum’s collection, but also elegant and fashionable wedding dresses worn by ladies from Murfreesboro and around the country. Also on exhibit are bride dolls from different decades in many different sizes and vintage bridesmaid’s dresses.
Witness the changes in fashion from different areas, eras and cultures as we transcend time to the modern day bride. The exhibit will be open daily 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sundays. Admission to the exhibit is $10 per person and is open to the public.
Mansion tours are available at regular rates during regular museum hours and combination tickets for the exhibition and house tours are available at a reduced rate. Group tour rates are available with a reservation.
This exhibit is sponsored in part by the Human Sciences Department of Middle Tennessee State University, Chelsea Place Apartments and Karen Whitaker with Ruby Ribbon.
