Built in the 1800’s as a plantation home, the entrance to the Oaklands Historic House Museum has always served as a portal to the past for visitors intrigued by visions of the Old South, and starting January 13th romantics are cordially invited to walk past the nuptial numbers which brides of yesteryear wore for their walks down the aisle as the museum unveils “Wedding Dresses through the Decades.”
Through March 3rd fans of fashion can enjoy a close up look at changing trends for those tying the knot, ranging from the rich satin of 1870’s ensembles to the sensible styles of World War II wedding wear. In all, 46 garments, including gowns, suits and other dresses, will be on display in Manley Hall.
The exhibit is being held in conjunction with the museum’s Language of Love and Courtship Tours.
When: January 13 – March 3, 2013 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. on Sunday.
Where: Oaklands Historic House Museum at 900 North Maney Avenue in Murfreesboro, Tennessee
