Something Old, Something New: Connecticut Weddings Through the Ages
Presented by CT Museum of Culture and History
Free to Members plus a Guest | Performance Studio

From colonial to modern times, how did Connecticans tie the knot? How did they celebrate? What did they wear? And how did some of our cherished wedding customs originate? This program uses CMCH’s extensive collection of wedding clothing, accessories, photographs and prints to examine some of our ideas about what makes a “traditional” wedding, and what those traditions can reveal about how ideas about marriage have changed through the years.
