Vintage wedding dresses will be on display at the Oaklands until this Sunday.
Step back to yesterday and see the common threads that weave together the lives of women through the decades in middle Tennessee and across the country.
Enjoy traveling through time from the brocade and silk of the mid 1800’s to the stories and suits of the wartime brides in the 1940’s at the “Wedding Dresses Through the Decades” exhibit at Oaklands Historic House Museum presented in partnership with the Human Sciences Department of Middle Tennessee State University and sponsored in part by A Special Touch, Julia’s HomeStyle Bakery, Rion Flowers and Gifts, and Street Tuxedo.
Wedding dresses from many decades will be on display in Maney Hall and open to the public at Oaklands Historic House Museum through Sunday.
During this exhibit, grandmothers, mothers and daughters will have the rare opportunity to view items from not only the museum collection, but also elegant and fashionable wedding dresses worn by ladies from both Murfreesboro and around the country.
“These treasured garments reveal stories and secrets of the past,” said Nila Gober, curator of Oaklands. “We look forward to sharing the hidden collections of Oaklands and others in the community with you.”
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 during regular tour hours through Saturday from 10 a.m.4 p.m.. and Sunday from 1-4 p.m. Admission to the exhibit is $5 per person and open to the public. Museum tours are available at regular rates and regular museum hours.
