Traditions of the American white wedding

I Do! Traditions of the American White Wedding on exhibit Jan. 6 - Apr. 14.

The American white wedding is every little girls dream-the perfect beau, the elegant white gown, tiers of wedding cake and something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Many of today's wedding standards are steeped in traditions originating in religious ceremony, royal fashion and ancienthistory.I DO! uses antique wedding gowns and accessories to explore the histories and myths surrounding the customs of the American white wedding.
