(MURFREESBORO) There's just one week remaining to see "Wedding Dresses Through The Decades". It continues daily through March 1, 2020 at Oaklands Mansion, 900 Maney Avenue.
Vintage gowns from the past 100 years are on display along with brides' photos and stories from their wedding day. Guests can view items from, not only the museum's collection, but also elegant and fashionable wedding dresses worn by women from Murfreesboro and around the country. Also on exhibit this year are wedding ring quilts on loan from members of our community.
"This is the last opportunity to view these precious dresses and read the bride's stories. They will be returned to their owners where they are stored under beds and in the back of attics," said Mary Beth Nevills, Education Director of Oaklands, "Over the nine years of the exhibition we have been honored to display over 450 gowns on loan from our community."
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, Monday-Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. and Sundays 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. Admission to the exhibit is $10.00 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, Karen Whitaker Ruby Ribbon, Kelly & Charlie Baum, J. Mullins Jewelry & Gifts, and the Rutherford County Convention & Visitors Bureau. For more information, contact Mary Beth Nevills at Oaklands (615) 893-0022 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
