In connection with our new exhibition, I Thee Wed: Bridal fashion from the Collection, take a closer look at one of our beautiful wedding dresses in detail. Learn the history of the dress, its structure, and popular styles of the time. Travel to the past as we recreate what this early 20th century dress would have looked like on a wedding day.

Visitors can explore several examples of wedding gowns -both white and the less traditional -in the Museum’s collection in I Thee Wed. Discover how these iconic dresses and their place in the world of fashion relate to wealth, class, gender, and women’s rights.
