We have been so blessed to present the wedding dress exhibit to our community for the past three years. In preparing for our fourth exhibit in 2015, we are overwhelmed with the generosity and thoughtfulness of brides, willing to share their stories and memories with us. It is with this outpouring of excitement that we have received hundreds of offers to display dresses, suits and gowns from every decade in the 20th Century. We want to include as many of these lovely garments as possible, but must work within our means.

Brides interested in placing their garment on display in the 2015 “Wedding Dresses Through the Decades” exhibit, submit the application form complete with a description of your dress and a photo if at all possible. This will enable us to select garments that represent the many decades, styles and stories that make this exhibit wonderful and engaging to our visitors. The more information you provide on this form, the more we have to share on the signs. Please make sure names (first,maiden and last) are printed and spelled correctly and dates are included.

The award winning “Wedding Dresses Through the Decades” exhibit will open on January 18, 2015 and be open to the public through March 8, 2015. We ask that applications and photos be returned as soon as possible with-in the next couple of weeks. It is with pride that we can share with our community your stories and treasures again in 2015.
