Take a tour of the exhibit here!

Thank you to our community for supporting this touching exhibit once again. The 5th Annual Wedding Dresses Through the Decades Exhibit ran January 10- March 6, 2016 and closed with a record number of visitors.

This exhibit included wedding dresses from every decade: 1847 through 2015. During the exhibit, guests had the rare opportunity to view items from, not only the museum’s collection, but also elegant and fashionable wedding dresses worn by ladies from Murfreesboro and around the country.

“These treasured garments reveal stories and secrets of the past,” said Mary Beth Nevills, Education Director of Oaklands. “We enjoyed sharing this year’s exhibit, full of new dresses from our community’s past.”

The “Wedding Dresses Through the Decades” exhibit at Oaklands Mansion is presented in partnership with the Human Sciences Department of Middle Tennessee State University and sponsored in part by Encore Bridal and Formalwear, Jo’s Custom Cakes and Catering, Rion Flowers & Gifts and The Write Impression.
