MURFREESBORO, TN - The Wedding Dresses Across Decades and Cultures exhibit opened June 2 at The Woman’s Club of Murfreesboro and will continue for only two more weekends, (June 9-10 and June 16-17 from 10AM to 5PM on Friday and Saturday and June 11, 18 from 1PM to 5PM).

The Club welcomed visitors from our community as well as from Brentwood and Knoxville. The Brentwood couple was married at the Club 20 years ago and spoke about their wonderful memories of the ceremony in the parlor and grand reception in the ballroom. Other visitors have included sons and daughters whose mothers’ dresses are included in the Exhibit.


Visitors enjoyed dresses from eras like the roaring twenties, the year of the stock market crash, World War II and the Korean War as well as a collection from the mid to late 1800’s. The variety of styles and fabrics reflects the times in which the marriages took place, ranging from 1870 to 2021. Also of great interest were the dresses from China, Japan, India and South Korea.

All attendees have appreciated the care and elegance with which the gowns are presented, as well as the variety and diversity of the curation. The Club’s 1856 built house, located at 221 E. College St. in Murfreesboro, proves itself to be a beautiful venue for various occasions.

The Woman’s Club values its partnership with Oaklands Mansion in returning the Wedding Dress Exhibit to Murfreesboro and Rutherford County.

Please make your plans to attend Fridays and Saturdays June 9-10 and June 16-17 from 10am-5pm, and Sundays June 11 and June 18 from 1pm-5pm. Located at 221 E. College St. in Murfreesboro, admission at the door is $15, cash and checks only please.
